The International Cryptozoology Museum Journal





The International Cryptozoology Museum of Portland, Maine is now going to have a new journal coming out next year. The museum's director is Loren Coleman, author of many cryptozoology books, including Cryptozoology A to Z(with Jerome Clark), Mothman and Other Curious Encounters, Mysterious America, Curious Encounters, Monsters of Massachusetts, Tom Slick and The Search for the Yeti, and many others.

The journal will only be one of the many that have been published on cryptozoology. None have lasted forever, though. The journal Cryptozoology was published from 1982 to 1996.

Karl Shuker's The Journal of Cryptozoology came out in 2012 and will have ten issues come out no matter sales. Two of those are currently out, and the third will likely come out later this year.

Here's part of the post from Loren Coleman's blog CryptoZooNews:

"The International Cryptozoology Museum is delighted to disseminate the news of a new journal about cryptozoology, built on the history of academic, objective, methodical, and critical thinking periodicals, dating back to the 1980s.
The publications of modern cryptozoological organizations and groups have been journeys in serious scientific considerations of the data and the field, mixed with frustration and funding gaps. We plan to produce an annual volume that accents the positives and avoids the negatives of the past."

Mountain Monsters - Coming Back in 2018?

Destination America's Mountain Monsters was a huge hit when it premiered in 2013. It's had five seasons through last year.

Season 3 started a "Bigfoot Edition" and season 4 introduced a "rogue team." Last season focused entirely on this "rogue team" and ended with really no conclusion.

Over the past 2 Saturdays, some old season 2 episodes of Mountain Monsters have been playing in the evenings. Could this be a sign that the show might be back for another season this year, or does it have no meaning at all?

If the show does come back, where can they go? Last season made absolutely no sense at all and the whole thing was pretty stupid. If it does come back, I think they should go back to just monster hunting like they did in the first two seasons. Once they went to just "Bigfoot Edition" things went downhill quick.

Some Thoughts on Alaska Monsters: Bigfoot Edition

So far, two episodes of Alaska Monsters: Bigfoot Edition have aired. Here are some of my thoughts on the show.

First off, let's start with the team, the Midnight Sons. There are a few new members on the team this season. The old leader, Little Bear, is gone, and now Crusty (the guy with the bear claw in his beard) is leader of the team. Other members are: Dudley (new guy), the team "forensic expert," Todd, the "trap engineer," Bulldog (new guy), the "survival expert," Rhett, the "greenhorn" (rookie), and of course Face, the "veteran tracker."

Compared to the AIMS Team of Mountain Monsters, Crusty is Trapper, Todd is Willy, Rhett is Buck, Bulldog would probably be Huckleberry, Dudley would probably be Jeff, and Face would be Wild Bill.

I haven't seen the first episode, "Bigfoot of the Arctic Circle: Siberian Giant," but I did watch episode two, "Bigfoot of Denali: Wind Walker" last Saturday. I actually though…

Review - Invasion on Chestnut Ridge

Small Town Monsters' 5th film, Invasion on Chestnut Ridge, comes out soon. STM director Seth Breedlove let me check out an advance copy of the film to put up a review on here. Though I've been quite busy for about the last month and a half, I finally got a chance to check out the film, and these are my thoughts on it.

Invasion is about the strange happenings along the Chestnut Ridge in Pennsylvania. Local residents who have had strange encounters are interviewed, as well as researchers Stan Gordon and Eric Altman.  Along the ridge, witnesses have reported ghost lights, UFOs, Bigfoot, werewolves, thunderbirds, and many, many other odd things.

Many well known sightings happened in the early 1970s, when reports of UFOs and Bigfoot were very frequent. The strangest thing of all this was that sometimes the two would be seen at the same time, or shortly after on another. Some witnesses even saw a white colored Bigfoot that was holding a ball of light.

On another occasion, two Bigfo…
