Puerto Rican Monsters: On the Horizon
I was chatting with Jon Downes a couple of days ago, and he was telling me that his new book, Island of Paradise (that tells the story of my and Jon's 2004 expedition to Puerto Rico in search of the Chupacabras), will be published within the next couple of weeks. Having read it, and provided end-of-chapter notes, I can safely say that you will not be disappointed by this one. Written in Jon's own unique style, it captures the essence of a monster-driven adventure in exotic locations, and dense rain-forests. And there's a stunning amount of new data to be digested, too. I'll be doing a full review here when it's available.
