Crypto Books

Over at Cryptomundo, Loren Coleman gives his personal round-up of the best cryptozoological books of 2007. My books Man-Monkey and Memoirs of a Monster Hunter jointly won the "Best Autobiography or Biography Cryptozoology Book of 2007" category.

As Loren says: "Nick Redfern’s semi-serious treks between investigations and pubs, from one cryptid-filled location to the next, as shared in his two 2007 books take the cake, and win the prize. They may not be your cup of tea, but the chap is a decent guy and writes very well. He has a knack for chronicling how he does his style of cryptozoology. Full congratulations to Redfern for putting his lively living diaries to paper and giving those that like these kinds of personalized books plenty to read beside the campfire or fireplace. Enjoy them."

Loren also highlights several of my own favorite books of last year: Neil Arnold's excellent Monster!; Bart Nunnelly's Mysterious Kentucky; and Ken Gerhard's Big Bird. Here's to 2008!
