A good review for Mysterious Creatures!

mysterious-creatures-vol1The 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“.

Karl Shuker on Pygmy Elephants

Pygmy ElephantsA recent issue of Fortean Times magazine (FT 320, November 2014) carried a review of Matt Salusbury’s book Pygmy Elephants: On the Track of the World’s Largest Dwarfs, published by CFZ Press. The review was written by one of Britain’s best-known cryptozoologists, Dr Karl Shuker.

Dr Shuker gave the book a rating of 9 out of 10, summing up Matt Salusbury’s achievement as follows:

His diligent compilation, presentation and analysis of the hitherto disparate history and facts about these enigmatic animals, plus his own addition of important new data to their archive of material as exclusively revealed in this book, make it a publication very deserving to be read by everyone interested in such creatures. If you’re looking for information on stature-challenged pachyderms, this is the publication to consult.
