Overview

For centuries, people across the world have had a fascination with monsters and strange creatures. They marvel at the tales and legends of the Bigfoot of the Pacific Northwest; of the Abominable Snowman of the Himalayas; of the infamous and diabolical Moth-Man of West Virginia; of fire-breathing dragons; and of those dark denizens of the deep: lake monsters and sea serpents. But do such creatures really exist? Can it be true that our planet is home to fantastic beasts that lurk deep within its forests and waters? Memoirs of a Monster Hunter proves the answer is a resounding yes!

In this follow-up to his wildly successful Three Men Chasing Monsters, paranormal investigator and author Nick Redfern chronicles his surreal road-trip through the United States and beyond in search of all-things monstrous. His strange adventures lasted five years and saw him doggedly pursuing a menagerie of creatures, including gargoyles, giant birds, and what some believe are living dinosaurs.

• Explores the El Yunque rainforest of Puerto Rico in search of the terrifying Chupacabras: a razor-clawed, glowing-eyed beast that is part giant bat and part vampire.
• Seeks out the Goat Man: a menacing creature that evokes imagery of both demons and the fabled cloven-hoofed Centaurs of ancient mythology, and is said to inhabit the forests of East Texas.
• Chases after what many people believe are real-life, flesh-and-blood werewolves that surface from hidden lairs and prowl the countryside when the Moon is full.

Part X-Files, part Crocodile Hunter with a mix of Jurassic Park and Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, Memoirs of a Monster Hunter takesyou on a roller-coaster ride into the unknown. Read personal accounts of the monsters that inhabit your wildest imagination and your worst nightmares. The creatures you were told couldn't possibly exist, really do.

    A reviewer

    One of only a handful of true, authentic monster hunters in the world today, his latest literary effort, 'Memoirs of a Monster Hunter' affords the reader a glimpse behind the scenes of the experiences which were later chronicled in 2006's instant classic, 'Three Men Seeking Monsters'. Indeed 'Memoirs' works well as a companion volume, or sequel, to this excellent work. Redfern's fearless approach to both his occupation and his craft makes for a unique and interesting read the likes of which is seldom seen from his counterparts who hail from this side of the Atlantic. In 'Memoirs' Redfern shows that he is also equally adept and at ease discussing off topic subjects such as his love life, or fellow Brit buddy Jon Downs' devastating hemorriod attacks, as he is speaking about his monster hunting exploits. But, never fear, monsters abound inside this book's covers as well as other unexplained phenomena. From El Chupacabras to Bigfoot. From Goatman to ghostlights. Werewolves, vampire bats, HIV infected mosquitos. It's all in here! Redfern, with his affinity for punk rock music, zombie movies, black tee-shirts and good, strong ale, and armed with little more than a drink in one hand and his decidedly British sense of humor - almost casually finds himself repeatedly thrust into the most remote, isolated locations experiencing hair-raising adventures. This book leaves no stone unturned in its quest for answers concerning some of the world's strangest cryptids and comes highly recommended to anyone interested in Fortean phenomena. Humorous and interesting. Excellent! 5 stars... B.M.Nunnelly - author, 'Mysterious Kentucky'
