October Book of the Month: Mothman by Loren Coleman

In honor of everyone's favorite eerie holiday, Cosimo is happy to announce Mothman and Other Curious Encounters by Loren Coleman as our October Book of the Month!

Fifty years  ago, on November 15, 1966, a 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 a one-off phenomon. Leading cryptozoologist and 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 at the beginning of this century. Coleman also examines the impact on investigations into the unknown by John Keel, the newsman who spend a year in Point Pleasant looking into the Mothman story and lived to write about it.
