    Mothman and Other Curious Encounters

    This book is never out of stock because more are printed everytime more are ordered and needed. If it says 'out-of-stock' above, this is a misstatement. I know. I talked directly to the publisher.

    Mothman and Kin Live On

    Mothman? A winged creature or entity from the late 1960¿s in and around Point Pleasant, West Virginia. Although well known to many in the area of Cryptozoology, UFOology, Fortean Studies and related areas of research, the world is about to be awash in the topic one more with the upcoming release of the movie The Mothman Prophecies. <p> In Loren Coleman¿s newest book he deals with the history, culture and legacy of the case of Mothman and those that researched the topic, namely John Keel. But, beyond that context, Coleman looks at a variety of other unusual areas that may, or may not, be related to the phenomenon of Mothman. <p> The reader is taken to look at cases of Lizardmen, Merbeings, giant birds (Thunderbirds and Owls), Bigfoot, Sasquatch, and every imaginable creation thereof. These are looked at for what they are, mysteries of the unknown. They defy easy classification, they are often convoluted and taken out of context by other researchers to fit specific theories. It is here that Coleman strikes the heart of the book as the hidden subtext to the book is that although these creatures do not necessarily fit into any one neat category, they all have basis in the history of the areas. They fall into mixed arenas and hence are often waylaid and overlooked by mystery historians or classified according to a particular theory. Even within the text of the book the creatures, entities, beings, or whatever you choose to call them, are not necessarily categorized, rather they are looked at for what they are and chronicled in true Fortean style. <p> The reader of Mothman and Other Curious Encounters is bound to be left with a feeling that more is out there then they may be aware of. More exists in a Fortean world than we would think, and perhaps the reader will take a look for themselves and play some ¿name games¿ and date comparisons of events. The reader is taken to the world of the unusual, and brought safely back to the comfort of home, but the essence of the unusual will linger, the wonder will not be abated. <p> So come along and experience Mothman, Bigfoot, Batsquatch, Owlman, Lizardmen, Momo, the Honey Island Swamp Monster, Thunderbirds, Hell Hounds, Banshees and the other kin of Mothman, essentially ¿Loren¿s Paradigm.¿ The journey is worth the cost, you won¿t soon forget it.

    Mothman and Other Curious Encounters

    'An intriguing look at the legend behind THE MOTHMAN PROPHECIES, the new motion picture featuring Richard Gere, Debra Messing, Will Patton and Laura Linney.' - Screen Gems/Sony ________________________________ A NEW HOLLYWOOD BLOCKBUSTER, an amazing companion documentary, and thousands of web pages in its honor - what¿s all the fuss about? In a word - Mothman! On November 15, 1966, this huge, red-eyed creature with wings appeared over Point Pleasant, West Virginia. Thus began thirteen months of otherworldly mystery, madness, and mayhem for the people of Point Pleasant, culminating in the collapse of the Silver Bridge, which left 46 dead. But contrary to popular belief, Mothman is not unique. Here for the first time, investigator Loren Coleman looks at the precursors of Mothman, like the Flatwoods Monster of 1952, then brings the story up to date, detailing the sightings of the spawn of Mothman, some as recent as November 2001. Coleman also examines the impact on investigations into the unknown by John Keel, the newsman who spent a year in Point Pleasant looking into the Mothman story and lived to write about it. Mothman and Other Curious Encounters is certain to jolt your placid preconceived notion of the nature of the physical universe. ________________________________ ¿After a lifetime of research, Loren Coleman has produced the most complete overview of Mothman and its minions¿the scariest family of monsters on Earth.¿ ¿ John A. Keel, author, The Mothman Prophecies ________________________________ LOREN COLEMAN, of Portland, Maine, is the author of fourteen previous books, including his recent and critically acclaimed Mysterious America: The Revised Edition. He is an acknowledged expert in the field of cryptozoology and forteana investigaions.
