Today's News

Here's the latest that caught my eyes:

1. From The Anomalist: Angels, Devils and Bigfoot Los Angeles Times. Nick Owchar gives some quick reviews of the best anomalous books released during 2009, including John Geiger's The Third Man Factor, Matt Baglio's The Rite: The Making of a Modern Exorcist, Joshua Blu Buhs' Bigfoot: The Life and Times of a Legend and Michael McLeod's Anatomy of a Beast: Obsession and Myth on the Trail of Bigfoot. Will you be picking up any of these titles for the folks on your Christmas list?

2. Also from The Anomalist: If I Never See Bigfoot, Does He Not Exist? The Parafactor. John Mallek has some thoughts on Bigfoot and whether or not the giant, hairy biped has to be seen to be believed. Key quote: "(I)f one never sees Bigfoot or anything commonly classified as paranormal, does it not exist and in turn lessen their credibility when discussing the topic?" Meanwhile, one of the world's foremost cryptozoologists, Loren Coleman, presents Museum: One of Top Weird Stories of 2009; The Coleman Bigfoot; and Jack Black's Cryptozoology Movie? With images.

3. Dale Drinnon on Giant-Apes.

4. Mermaids on the Isle of Man.
