Does a hulking, hairy, 800-pound, nine-foot-tall, elusive primate roam the woods and forests throughout North America—and the world? What should we make of the grainy videos and photos and the thousands of eyewitness reports? Audio-recordings exist purporting to be the creatures’ eerie chatter and bone-chilling screaming. Whether called Sasquatch, Yeti, Bigfoot, or something else, bipedal primates appear in folklore, legends, and eyewitness accounts in every state of the union and many places around the world. The fascination with the man-beast is stronger than ever in today’s pop culture. Exploring the history, movies, and literature, the conspiracy theorizing, and the world of the supernatural, The Encyclopedia of Sasquatch, Yeti and Cryptid Primates is a comprehensive resource to the man-beast. With nearly 200 entries and 120 photographs, drawings, and illustrations, it is the definitive guide to understanding, hunting, and avoiding the brute, as well as discovering the facts behind the sightings and horrifying tales. It covers 400 years of folklore, mythology, history, and pop culture, including Native American lore, the “wild men” reports in the pages of 19th century-era American newspapers, Florida's Myakka Skunk Ape, Australia's Yowie, China's Yeren, Himalayas’ Yeti, Russian expeditions, Harry and the Hendersons, Exists and the countless movies titled Bigfoot, as well as specials on the television shows Animal Planet, Discovery Channel and National Geographic Channel, scientific reports and findings, and much, much more. Various documentaries and reality television shows have all superficially tackled the subject, but Nick Redfern presents a truly encyclopedic look at cryptid primates. It is a richly researched reference, overflowing with fascinating information to make readers think—and reconsider their next camping trip.

Does the U.S. government know more about UFO and alien life than it admits? Are eyewitnesses telling the truth? What does the historical record say? Former intelligence officer and retired U.S. Army lieutenant colonel Kevin Randle takes an objective look at evidence for alien life and UFOs and presents his findings in The UFO Dossier: 100 Years of Government Secrets, Conspiracies and Cover Ups. The author reviews the documents, scours government databases, and interviews witnesses, unearthing details on UFOs, mysterious crashes, sightings, encounters, and related phenomena. The UFO Dossier presents plots, cover-ups, misleading statements, and documented connections to government intrigue—as well as hoaxes and problematic authentications. Following leads and digging into the files of the CIA, the FBI, the FAA, NASA, the Army, Navy, Air Force, and other U.S. government and international agencies, Randle lets the facts guide him. From a short history of UFO projects and the Condon Committee to the complete COMETA report and UFOs in the 21st century, investigations include … • Asteroids, meteors and UFOs (Tunguska, Battle of LA, Whitted Sighting, …) • Photographs (McMinnville, Tremonton UFO Movie, Bear Mt. St. Park, …) • Injuries by UFOs (Fort Itaipu; Cedar City, Utah; Leominster, MA; …) • Lights in the Night Sky (Lubbock Lights, Belgium Triangle, New Jersey Lights, …) • Scientists and UFOs (Agoura, CA; Artesia, NM; University of Brazil, …) • And more ...

Throughout our history, humans have been captivated by mythic beasts and legendary creatures. Tales of Bigfoot, the Yeti, and the Loch Ness monster are part of our collective experience. Now comes a book from two dedicated investigators that explores and elucidates the fascinating world of cryptozoology. Daniel Loxton and Donald R. Prothero have written an entertaining, educational, and definitive text on cryptids, presenting the arguments both for and against their existence and systematically challenging the pseudoscience that perpetuates their myths. After examining the nature of science and pseudoscience and their relation to cryptozoology, Loxton and Prothero take on Bigfoot; the Yeti, or Abominable Snowman, and its cross-cultural incarnations; the Loch Ness monster and its highly publicized sightings; the evolution of the Great Sea Serpent; and Mokele Mbembe, or the Congo dinosaur. They conclude with an analysis of the psychology behind the persistent belief in paranormal phenomena, identifying the major players in cryptozoology, discussing the character of its subculture, and considering the challenge it poses to clear and critical thinking in our increasingly complex world.

It's no secret that, roughly 100 miles north northwest of Las Vegas in the middle of a remote desert, sits an extension of the Edwards Air Force facility commonly known as Area 51, but its clandestine purpose and operations remain shrouded in secrecy. It's a highly classified, restricted area, but, cloaked in conspiracy theories, its history and true function remain a mystery. Taking a thorough review of the historical record, eyewitness accounts, whistleblower allegations, and deathbed confessions, Area 51: The Revealing Truth of UFOs, Secret Aircraft, Cover-Ups and Conspiracies peers behind the highly fortified, heavily guarded CIA testing ground to understand fully the nature, history, and scope of the most secret and controversial base in the United States. It investigates the Cold War years, U-2 spy plane, SR-71 Blackbird, and chemical and nuclear weapon research as well as the base's link to an extraterrestrial presence on Earth, reports of alien autopsies, recovery of non-terrestrial spacecraft, and attempts to duplicate the fantastic, alien technology.

Dieses Buch ist eines der berühmt-berüchtigsten Bücher und das meistzitierteste Referenzwerk über Werwölfe denn es gibt einen Überblick über alle Aspekte der Lykantrophie: Einen einfachen wissenschaftlichen Rückblick auf die Literatur über Gestaltwandel. Dann berichtet es über die Praktiken der Naturvölker, und führt das Thema weiter bis zu den Fallstudien von wirklichen Verbrechen und Verbrechern, Grabschändern, Kannibalen und Blutfetischisten - die letztlich alle durch ein dünnes Band mit der Lykanthropie verbunden sind. Es berichtet u.a. von folgenden Themen: Lykanthropie im Altertum - Der Werwolf bei den nordischen Völkern - Die Ursprünge des skandinavischen Werwolfs - Der Werwolf im Mittelalter - Eine Kammer des Grauens - Jean Grenier - Der Werwolf in der Folklore - Natürliche Ursachen der Lykanthropie - Die mythologischen Ursprünge des Werwolfsglaubens - Der Marschall De Retz (Gille de Rais) Teil I bis III - Ein galizischer Werwolf - Ein ungewöhnlicher Fall: Die menschliche Hyäne - Eine Predigt zum Thema Werwölfe
