Cryptozoology Month Comes to a Close

Is it almost Halloween already?

It’s been such fun highlighting books about the weird and wonderful this month! Cryptozoology Month at Cosimo has indulged our love of the spooky, the unknown, and the paranormal; we’ve talked about Bigfoot, TheMothman, and even visited the Bridgewater Triangle for a glimpse at how folklore can change the way we see (and even fear!) a patch of marshy land.

Mythical MonstersIt was a strange coincidence that large sea serpents were spotted in California this month, and perhaps less of a coincidence (but no less exciting) to learn that Bigfoot may be genetically linked to an ancient species of bear. If this month has taught us anything, it’s that the world can still surprise us, and we still have lots to learn about its creatures!

Don’t forget to pick up one of our cryptozoology titles before our October sale ends--check out reKiosk for digital titles and the links below. If you’re new to cryptozoology, take a gander at our post on "LorenColeman Presents", a collection of ground-breaking cryptozoology titles on everything from dragons to Thunderbirds. You can also browse our cryptozoology titles at our homepage under “Cosimo Picks.” Be sure to check out our Classic of the Month, the first serious scientific study of Bigfoot.

Have a spooky and safe Halloween, and don’t forget: sometimes the real world is stranger than fiction!
