Overview

Ever since 1997, 'Alien Zoo', Dr Karl Shuker's cryptozoology news column has been a regular feature in Fortean Times - the world's premier magazine devoted to unexplained phenomena of every kind, and inspired by the writings and researches of scientific iconoclast Charles Fort. Dr Shuker has also penned many longer, more detailed 'Lost Ark' articles for Fortean Times, surveying an immense diversity of controversial and newly-revealed creatures worldwide. Today, not only are both of these long-running FT series hailed as cryptozoological classics but now, for the very first time, an extensive compilation of each of them has been meticulously prepared by Dr Shuker, incorporating numerous remarkable illustrations (including many rare or previously-unpublished examples), and presented here in book form.

    Rambling Through Cryptozoology

    Karl Shuker's Alien Zoo, The latest offering from the noted cryptozoology expert, is interesting but a bit disjointed. The format, an anthology of his magazine columns, leads to a lot of repetition and items that are never resolved.There is interesting information about the search for unknown, rare, and thought to be extinct animals that may still exist but many of the items recounted in the columns are obviously hoaxes or cases of mistaken identity.That does give you a feel for what those who search for unknown species or cryptids go through to get at the truth. As usual, Shuker has down a fine job of rounding up photos and drawings to illustrate his book. I would recommend that beginners start with The Beasts That Hide From Man or Extraordinary Animals Worldwide to introduce themselves to Dr.Shuker's writing before reading this book.
