Mothman 3

The third volume in Andy Colvin's massively-paged Mothman's Photographer series of books is now among us!

This is one for which I wrote the foreword, and a real mind-bending and wild experience the book is, too.

For Mothman devotees everywhere!

Here's the Amazon link; and here's what the publisher says about the book:

Spurred in 2001 by the realization that the 9/11 attacks were accurately predicted - in 1967 - by a friend who was seeing Mothman, Seattle artist Andrew Colvin began filming a reality series, "The Mothman's Photographer," documenting his experiences growing up in Mound, WV.

"The Mothman's Photographer III" is a book of oral history based on the 2nd half of that series, where Colvin travels afield in search of Mothman-related avatars like Thunderbird, Bigfoot, and Garuda.

As the synchronicities pile up, Colvin shocks listeners to one of America's top conspiracy shows, The Grassy Knoll, by explaining that Mothman is not a demon but an avenging angel - an archetypal protector deity sending dreams, visions, and prophecies to psychically enhanced experiencers.

In his interviews and encounters with these experiencers, Colvin uniquely blends historical research, parapolitical theory, and spiritual wisdom to reveal valuable techniques for increasing one’s happiness, creativity, and self-knowledge.

And the write-up is spot-on about the synchronicities: here's one that happened to me the other day while focusing on the book.

I have no problem believing this is an "Angel", Nick. But "Avenging?" I don't know about that one. Maybe this is a man-made hybrid??? Who knows what Uncle Sam has messed with over the decades?

Whatever "Uncle Sam has messed with" probably doesn't violate the laws of physics for flying organic objects. Mothman, (and to be honest, most other mysterious flying digures) is a anomaly primarily because nothing that obeys the physical laws of this universe can fly with that large a body and that small of a wingspan. Whatever Mothman and cronies may be, they are NOT any kind of genetic experiment.

You make a good point, Mecro. I was just considering one of many possible scenarios that have been offered up by Mothman "fans" over the decades. The abandoned weapons and chemical depot used by the Army decades ago near where Mothamn was first sighted DOES raise the imaginative juices, you have to admit.
I tend to think this is a "supernatural" entity that does not operate by the laws of physics of this universe. Interdimensional alien, maybe?
Anyway, you do make a good point.
