Loren Coleman Presents Series as our Series of the Month, so break out the spooky costumes, scary stories, and all things that go bump in the night — it's October!
Loren Coleman one of the world's leading cryptozoologists, has been seeking evidence and folklore since the Abominable Snowmen caught his interest more than five decades ago.
Loren Coleman has selected some of the most fascinating and also rare books from the time when the term 'cryptozoology" did not yet exist. This series brings to light some of the curiosities and wonders from zoology but also from myths and folklore. Coleman provides each title with a reflective introduction explaining the context and meaning of each of those significant works of cryptozoology. From werewolves to dragons, from sea monsters to unexplained myths, Coleman explores it all.
