This is a special double issue. Issue #58 should have come out in September and #59 round about now. However, without going into to much tedious detail, we are ridiculously overwhelmed at the moment, and this double issue has given us some much needed breathing space. Hard copies and kindle versions will be available in due course, probably in March or April, when the next issue of A&M is due.
The eagle-eyed amongst you, I think, will notice the image of the last issue of Animals & Men, on the main CFZ website has not been replaced with issue #58/9. This is not down to our inefficiency: there is something wrong with the servers at our ISP, and, I am sure that this will be resolved in the near future.

The Loch Ness monster is undoubtedly the best known unknown animal in the world of that is not too much of an oxymoron. Here, for the first time is gathered together a book-length collection of articles written by Dr Shuker about Nessie over the years. He writes:
“Nessie the Loch Ness monster (LNM) is not only the premier mystery beast of the United Kingdom, it also vies with the bigfoot or sasquatch as the most famous one anywhere in the world. Little wonder, therefore, that during his many years as a world-renowned crypt what does viagra 100 mg do viagra prescribed online legally
ozoological researcher and writer, Dr Karl Shuker should have documented it and all manner of aspects relating to it in a wide range of publications
Now, however, for the very first time and in direct response to popular demand, all of Dr Shuker’s most significant but previously disparate Nessie-themed writings have finally been brought together, and in expanded, updated form whenever possible too, to yield the present LNM compendium, covering a fascinating, extremely broad spectrum of pertinent topics. os genericos do viagra buy viagra from china
These include: a comprehensive review of the history and controversies associated with this exceedingly contentious aquatic cryptid; a diverse selection of the most – and least – plausible taxonomic identities that have been proposed for it; the closely-linked traditional Scottish folklore of kelpies and other water-horses; various Nessie-related hoaxes; an extensive survey of other Scottish freshwater loch monsters; reviews of Nessie-related material; a hitherto-unpublished LNM sighting from leading Nessie researcher and eyewitness Tim Dinsdale; Nessie in philately; the historic LNM conference staged by the International Society of Cryptozoology at Edinburgh’s Royal Museum of Scotland in 1987; the enigmatic Pictish beast; a tribute in verse to Nessie; an annotated, YouTube-linked listing of Nessie-themed songs and music videos; and much more too!
Supplementing these varied subjects is an equally eclectic selection of illustrations – a dedicated Nessie gallery containing a dazzling array of spectacular full-colour LNM artwork, including a number of specially-commissioned, previously-unpublished examples, as well as a wide range of text images – plus a very comprehensive bibliography of non-fiction Nessie books, a listing of current LNM-themed websites, and a detailed index.
So without further ado, welcome to the sometimes decidedly weird yet always totally wonderful world of Nessie – the mystifying but ever-memorable monster of Loch Ness.”
As you will probably be aware, the two most recent issues of Animals & Men are now available as both hard copy and kindle ebooks. This is in addition to them being available for free as online flipbooks.

The Magonia Review of Books has posted an excellent review of our reissue of George M. Eberhart’s two-volume Mysterious Creatures: A Guide to Cryptozoology. As Peter Rogerson says in his review, the work originally appeared as a pair of very expensive hardcovers in 2001, and our paperback editions are much more affordable. The review goes on to say that “this is the most authoritative reference book on the subject” and “it should certainly be bought by anyone who is, or wants to be, a cryptozoologist“.
