August 2017 Crypto-Kid Guests

I am proud to announce that I have the next three guests for the Crypto-Kid booked. This will lead us into September. Because I have several guests booked already, I decided to list off who, what, and when for the next few weeks.

August 14th: Tyler Houck. 

Tyler is one of the only other cryptozoologists under 18 in the world. Tyler and I have collaborated on several projects and are good friends. He is the author of Cryptid U.S. which discusses various cryptids around the United States. He is also the writer of the blog Tyler's Cryptozoo. We will discuss Tyler's research into US cryptids and the subject of globsters.

August 21st: Ken Gerhard

Ken Gerhard is one of the world's premier cryptozoologists. He has written four books including A Menagerie of Mysterious Beasts, Big Birds!, and Encounters with Flying Humanoids. He will be coming on the show to discuss sightings of the Thunderbird across America.

August 28th: Chad Lewis

Chad Lewis is the author of over a dozen books discussing various unusual occurrences in the Midwest. His books include Lake Monsters of Wisconsin, The Van Meter Visitor with Kevin Nelson and Noah Voss, and Pepie: The Lake Monster of the Mississippi River with Noah Voss. He will be joining me to discuss lake monsters in the Midwest.

I am quite excited about having these great guests on the show and I hope that you all will tune in.

Vintage UFO, Paranormal, and Cryptid Book Collection

Those of you who know me well, know that I collect lots of books about the unusual. I am quite proud of my collection of nearly 250 books on all kinds of strange phenomena. Among these, I actually own quite a few that are fairly old and rare. If you listen to my show, I actually mention my collection quite regularly so I thought my followers might be interested in a small peek into my library.

Here are a few highlights from my collection:

  • They Knew Too Much About Flying Saucers by Gray Barker, Second Edition, signed by the author (1956)
  • Invisible Residents by Ivan T. Sanderson, First Edition (1970)
  • Book of Great Jungles by Ivan T. Sanderson, First Edition (1965)
  • The Flying Saucers Are Real by Donald Keyhoe, First Edition Paperback (1950)
  • Man, Myth, and Magic, all 24 volumes, (1970)
  • Practical Zo├Âlogy by Alvin Davison, Ph.D. (1906)

The last one isn't about unexplained phenomena but it is still the oldest book I own and a testament as to how far zoology has come since 1906.
