Alien Artwork



Last year, artist Carol Ann Rodriguez generously let me use one of her paintings in my book, Women in Black. Now, however, Carol Ann has a book out filled with all of her artwork, and here's the link. Check it out!

A Sex Pistol & Nessie...


Currently reading: Lonely Boy, the autobiography of Sex Pistols' guitarist Steve Jones - which is an excellent book!

Also, picked these 2 oldies up the other day at Half Price Books in Arlington, Texas - (1) a 1939 book, A Book of Fabulous Beasts and (2) a 1970 paperback of F.W. Holiday's The Great Orm of Loch Ness. I have the original hardback but couldn't resist the paperback at just 2 dollars!

Picked up two cool, old, non-fiction books yesterday, George Laycock's The Alien Animals, and Kenneth Anderson's The Black Panther of Sivanipalli.


Also, received in the mail today a copy of a new book on the death of journalist Dorothy Kilgallen - a significant figure in the saga of the JFK assassination of November 22, 1963. A review of the Kilgallen book to follow! Its title: The Reporter Who Knew Too Much. And the author, Mark Shaw.

Nessie and Bigfoot at School...


Every November and December, me and good friend Shelly Covington-Montana do a series of lectures on the Loch Ness Monster and Bigfoot for the kids of Dallas' Highland Park School District. The kids - who are about 7 or 8 years old - always get a kick out of the spooky, creepy tales and visuals, and afterward, the teachers ask the kids to do some drawings of what they liked. Here's a few of the newest pictures, which arrived in the mail today from one of the schools. Very cool!

More Articles...

A few more new articles:

1. UFOs and Eschatology.

2. A Chupacabra Timeline.

3. A Review of The Mothman Curse movie.

4. And, Monsters and Human Sacrifice.

"Monstro Bizarro" - Reviewed




Here's the link to the review, and below is how it begins...


Monstro Bizarro is a new book from Lyle Blackburn. Its subtitle will give you a good idea of its contents: An Essential Manual of Mysterious Monsters. This is an excellent book, one which covers a wide and varied body of subjects and which is both informing and entertaining. Before I get to the matter of the content of the book, however, there’s the important issue of the layout, style and design. I have to say this is a very skilfully designed book that is filled with photos, paintings, drawings, movie posters, etc. Every single page of the book is lavishly illustrated. Most of the pages contain at least two or three images – and the vast majority of the images are in color, which is a major bonus.

As the author of both The Beast of Boggy Creek and Lizard Man (and of the forthcoming Beyond Boggy Creek) Blackburn knows his subject-matter well. If you are interested in the issue of so-called “Hairy Hominids” – Bigfoot, the Yeti, etc. – then you won’t be disappointed. We begin with “Bigfoot Beasts” and a section titled “On the Track of Sasquatch Cinema,” which is an extremely well compiled summary of all the essential Bigfoot/Yeti-themed movies, such as The Snow Creature, The Abominable Snowman, The Legend of Boggy Creek, and Exists. Of the latter, Blackburn says: “The plausible story, exceptional creature suit and skilled filmmaking set a new mark for Sasquatch cinema.”
