In a fascinating new article by cryptid researcher Adam Davies, Adam explores the question of whether the Orang Pendek of Sumatra and the presumably extinct ‘Hobbits’ of the nearby Flores Islands (also known by its scientific name, Homo floresiensis) might possibly have been related. Read on and let us know your opinion.
Adam Davies recently met with members of his team of fellow cryptid researchers who will accompany him on his latest expedition to the West Garo Hills district of the state of Meghalaya in India, in search for evidence of the Mande Burung, a legendary man-like ape (or perhaps ape-like man) that has long been reported as having been seen and encountered in this heavily forested and remote region of India.
Once again, I’ve been in contact with cryptozoologist Adam Davies this week and he told me in confidence of a very exciting new development in his research of the Orang Pendek, Sumatra’s mystery ape. Moments ago he forwarded me a statement that was only just released to the press. After five expeditions to the Sumatran jungles in search of this creature, Adam and his team have finally gotten strong scientific evidence that this is indeed an unknown and undiscovered species. Congratulations, Adam! Well done!
Monsters of New Jersey, a new book by Loren Coleman and Bruce G. Hallenbeck and published by Stackpole Books, will be released on September 1, 2010. I had the pleasure of being interviewed by Bruce regarding some of my research and articles on The Paranormalist blog, and I’ve had the honor of being cited in the book.
Mystery animals, alien big cats, thunderbirds, pterodactyls, and other cryptids appearing in highly populated areas? What are we to make of such reports? Are sightings of anomalous creatures in our own backyards simply misidentification or hoaxes, or are we seeing something real? I have no idea, but I’ve got a few opinions as to what the possible explanation could be…
Hunt for the Skinwalker, by scientist Colm Kelleher and investigative journalist George Knapp, is the true account of a remarkable and disturbing series of events that visited the “Gorman” family at their 480 acre ranch in northeastern Utah, beginning in the fall of 1994. Phenomena included UFOs, bigfoot sightings, poltergeist activity, cattle mutilations, and more.
My paternal grandmother was born in a rural area of Sweden in 1891, and when I was a boy she told me stories of the Tomten, small beings that took the appearance of old, bearded men. The Tomten were no more than 3 feet tall and wore pointed hats, which we’ve of course come to associate with gnomes and similar creatures. Grandma insisted they were real. Did she really see these little guys, or was she drinking too much glogg? Read on and find out!
