"Hidden Headlines Of Texas" Is Among Us

Hidden Headlines of Texas by Chad Lewis has just been published and is now available at Amazon for purchase.

This is a real gem as it details countless little known newspaper articles on all-things weird in the state of Texas from the latter part of the 19th Century to the early years of the 20th Century.

I wrote the Foreword to the book and - living in Dallas, Texas myself - I can safely say that if you are even remotely interested in the historical weirdness of the Lone Star State, then this is a book you will most definitely not want to miss.

As for cryptozoology and weird animals specifically, how you can resist learning about the mystery puma of Whitewright; the story of the seven-legged calf; the 40-foot-long tapeworm that was removed from a child’s stomach; the shaggy Wildman of the San Antonio River; giant eagles; a ten-horned cow; and the Lovecraftian pig-baby of Groesbeck.

As my neighbors would surely say: "Buy it y'all!"
