Back in print for the first time in decades! THE UNIDENTIFIED and CREATURES OF THE OUTER EDGE, the classic early works of Jerome Clark and Loren Coleman, now in a special double edition with a new introduction by the authors. "The Unidentified" finds the links that connect supernatural folklore, religious visions, cryptozoology, and modern-day UFO stories. It documents episodes from the fringes of human experience and exposes what they may tell us about ourselves and the strange world we live in, where things - whether fairies, ghosts, divine apparitions, or ostensible extraterrestrials - may be even more mysterious than they seem. "Creatures of the Outer Edge" surveys the cryptozoologically bountiful decade of the 1970s (and more) with accounts of Mothman, Owlmen, Thunderbirds, Phantom Panthers, Devil Dogs, Texas Big Birds, and, yes, of course, Bigfoot. Some of the individually "named" local Bigfoot creatures first appeared in this book, including Momo (Missouri Monster), Lake Worth Monster, Murphysboro Mud Monster, the Enfield Thing, El Reno Chicken Man, Noxie Monster, Navajo's Skinwalkers, and Yukon's Bushman. The book also introduced the now-iconic Dover Demon for the first time to the general public. Jerome Clark is a longtime ufologist and anomalist, who has appeared on NBC, ABC, the Discovery Channel, the History Channel, and A&E. He has written nearly 20 books, including two Book of the Month Club selections and the award-winning, multi-volume The UFO Encyclopedia, as well as songs recorded by Emmylou Harris, Tom T. Hall, and other country, folk, and bluegrass artists. His most recent book is Unnatural Phenomena. He lives in southwestern Minnesota with his wife, writer and editor Helene Henderson. Loren Coleman is the world's most popular living cryptozoologist. He appears frequently on television and radio, and has even been turned into a fictional character in novels and comic books. He is the author of more than two dozen books, including Bigfoot!; Mysterious America; and Cryptozoology A to Z (with Jerome Clark). His fieldwork has taken him from Scotland's Loch Ness to the rainforests of Mexico, from the Everglades to the Pacific Northwest's Bigfoot country. He lives in Portland, Maine, with his sons.
Clark is vice president of the J. Allen Hynek Center for UFO Studies and editor of its bimonthly International UFO Reporter.
Loren Coleman is one of the world's leading cryptozoologists and Bigfoot researchers. A Life Member of the International Society of Cryptozoology, Coleman is the author of twenty books, including the extremely popular "Mysterious America: The Revised Edition, " and "Mothman and Other Curious Encounters." He is a frequent guest on radio and television programs, and appeared in the FX Channel's "Search for the Mothman." Coleman has taught documentary film, cryptozoology, and anthropology courses at New England universities since 1980. He can be reached at PO Box 360, Portland, Maine, 04112, USA, or by e-mail at Bigfoot@LorenColeman.com.

scare the living YOU KNOW WHAT out of you.
Growing up in northwest Indiana in the early seventies, there was plenty of spooky going around and I remember being a young teen when the MOMO story hit the news.
then LEGEND OF BOGGY CREEK blew my mind and scared me really good. My night time walk home past the woods still gives me the shivers to remember how frightened I was hearing every twig snap and branches moving. I just jogged a memory of being out camping with two friends in the state of Michigan during the early eighties and we were staying in a older small type trailer, on the edge of the woods. IT was pitch black nighttime and both my friends left to use the bathroom in the larger trailer where the parents of the one were staying. I waited for them to get back and seconds turned to minutes.... and then I started hearing IT in the woods. First small movements and crunching of leaves..... then quite as if someone was slowly and quietly sneaking up. I was frozen in there, too afraid to move....
Still my friends did not come back.... what the hell was taking them so long? then a definite branch crack sound right outside the back of the trailer.
THAT DID IT, I flew out of there and across the small field to the well lighted trailer filled with people.
My stupid friends had been chatting awhile with the family when I had asked, where were you guys?!
as we said our good nights to go back to the spooky trailer, there was a loud crash.
The parents turned on the floodlights and a huge tree had been pushed on top of the little spook trailer, denting the roof and side.
Had I stayed in there just a few more minutes, that would have been me in there all alone experiencing THAT! I am sure I would have had a heart attack.
We stayed with the parents in their trailer for the rest of the camping trip. FREAKED me OUT but good.
This book brings you true stories like that. Hair raising indeed and not for the faint of heart. Heck, not even for the strong of heart.
beware, you will be SCARED.
"The Unidentified" and "Creatures of the Outer Edge" belong in the relatively slight category of books that discuss the paranormal rationally rather than treating it as mere titillation or wandering into nonsensical claims and conclusions. Both together and separately, they deserve their cult status. Admirers of John Keel will understand when I say that the books are comparable to Keel at his best and more cogently structured, but not as chilling or fascinating.
