Monster Hunters: On the Trail with Ghost Hunters, Bigfooters, Ufologists, and Other Paranormal Investigators

Monster Hunters is a new book by Tea Krulos that will come out June 1st. I think it looks like it will be a good one. Monster Hunters isn't really about the cryptids themselves - its about the people that look for them. It's also not fully on cryptids - it also has chapters on ghosts and UFOs.

Chapters on cryptids include: "The Monster Hunter and His Museum"(about Loren Coleman and the International Cryptozoology Museum), "The Slaying of the Chupacabras", "Lake Monster Fever," "The Terror and Subsequent Pride of Point Pleasant," "Squishes," "Something Skunky," and "The Accidental Werewolf Chronicler." Some of it will be about the Beast of Bray Road, Chupacabras, Sasquatch and Skunk Apes, and Mothman.

Here's the book's description from Amazon:

Do ghosts exist? What about Bigfoot or Skinwalkers? And how will we ever know? Journalist Tea Krulos spent more than a year traveling nationwide to meet individuals who have made it their life's passion to hunt down evidence of entities that they believe exist but that others might shrug off as nothing more than myths, fairy tales, or the products of overactive imaginations. Without taking sides in the debate, Krulos joins these believers in the field, exploring haunted houses, trekking through creepy forests, and scanning skies and lake as they collect data on the unknown poltergeists, chupacabras, Skunk Apes (Bigfoot's stinky cousins), and West Virginia's Mothman. Along the way, he meets a diverse cast of characters - true believers, skeptics, and hoaxers - from the credible to the quirky, and has a couple of hair-raising encounters that make him second-guess his own beliefs."
