Book Review: Monster Hunters by Tea Krulos

Yesterday, I finished Tea Krulos' new 2015 book Monster Hunters: On the Trail with Ghost Hunters, Bigfooters, Ufologists, and Other Paranormal Investigators. 

Krulos' book isn't your normal "so-and-so saw this or that here on whatever date" kind of crypto book, it's actually about the people who look for these creepy things. There are chapters on ghosts, UFOs, demons, and cryptids. Krulos interviews believers, investigators, skeptics, and hoaxers alike.  The cryptozoology chapters are listed below.

  • Chapter 1: "The Monster Hunter and His Museum" - about Loren Coleman and his International Cryptozoology Musuem
  • Chapter 3: "The Slaying of the Chupacabras" - about Chupacabras and skeptic Ben Radford saying how they aren't real
  • Chapter 4: "Lake Monster Fever" - about Champ, author describes his trip to Champ Camp a few years back, and interviews with Scott Mardis, Believe it Tour, Bruce Harrington, and Dennis Jay Hall
  • Chapter 7: "The Terror and Subsequent Pride of Point Pleasant." - about Mothman, has bits about the Mothman Festival and people there
  • Chapter 9: "Squishes" - author's trips with BFRO investigator Jim Sherman in Michigan
  • Chapter 11: "Somethin' Skunky" - about the Skunk Ape, and talks with some hoaxers
  • Chapter 12: "The Accidental Werewolf Chronicler" - about Linda S. Godfrey and how she became a chronicler of Dogman sightings
I did find myself also enjoying the chapters on ghost hunting and UFOs. 

As I said earlier in this post, this isn't your normal monster book. But, that's not a bad thing. Krulos has a great writing style and everything in the book is very interesting. Definitely recommended for any cryptozoology, UFO, or paranormal fan. 

Next book review will be Loch Ness by Adrian Shine.
