Of Books and Beasts, by: Matt Bille


OF BOOKS AND BEASTS: A CRYPTOZOOLOGIST’S LIBRARY (Hangar1 Publishing, December 2021) collects reviews culled from the author’s 45 years of reading and writing about cryptozoology. The most reliable information about this controversial field is largely held in books, but OF BOOKS AND BEASTS is the first-ever guide readers to help readers to the books they want. In addition to cryptozoology books, there is a guide to authoritative yet accessible works on sciences like anthropology and ecology a cryptozoologist needs to know. Finally, there’s a sample of the most intriguing or influential novels about cryptozoology. Your search for real unknown animals starts here! Copies available from all booksellers in all formats December 1 or direct from the publisher.
