Joedy Cook's "Mothman Casebook" Reviewed!

Joedy Cook, cryptid researcher from Cincinnati, Ohio, has a new book out called Mothman Casebook. I got the book recently and this is my review.

I enjoyed this book quite a lot, not just because I know the guy who wrote it, but because its a great book. Most of the book is sightings of Mothman or Mothman-like creatures in various states, including Ohio, West Virginia, Texan, Washington, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Florida, California, Wisconsin, New York, New Jersey, Alabama, and more.

All in all, I'd give this book 5/5 stars!


At the end of August, we went to the Mothman Museum in Point Pleasant, West Virginia. I remember saying how odd I thought it was that there are relatively few Mothman books out there compared to other well known cryptids, like Bigfoot. Just the next day I found this book. I thought it was a big strange… maybe Mothman had something to do with it!

Description from the back cover of Mothman Casebook:

"On a chilly November night in 1966, two young couples drove into the TNT Area north of Point Pleasant, West Virginia, when they realized they were not alone. What they saw that night has turned into one of the great mysteries of all time; hence the Mothman Legacy began. It has grown into a phenomenon known all around the world by millions of curious people asking question: What really happened? What did these people see? Has it been seen since? It still sparks the world's curiosity - the mystery behind Point Pleasant West Virginia's MOTHMAN."
