When Mothman Shrieks
Beyond any shadow of doubt, Andy Colvin has written and published more words on Mothman than I have knocked back cans of Tennents Super! Well, maybe...
But, that aside, the news today is that Andy has another book out on the red-eyed, winged thing of Point Pleasant, West Virginia!
This one is titled: The Mothman Shrieks: Controversial Conversations Concerning Cosmic Conundrums - Cryptic Creatures, Chimeras, Contactees, and the Cleverly Coded Coincidences and Correspondences of the Collective Unconscious.
I haven't seen it yet, but when I do, a review will soon follow!
And, as we are told about the book:
"Spurred by the realization that the 9/11 attacks were accurately predicted - in 1967 - by a childhood friend who was seeing Mothman, Seattle artist Andy Colvin began filming a reality series, 'The Mothman's Photographer,' documenting his experiences growing up in Mound, West Virginia. 'The Mothman Shrieks,' the second book in Colvin's 'birdman vocalization' trilogy, looks at the many ways Mothman communicates. Revealing letters from experiencers - penned during a wave of odd synchronicities, sightings, and encounters - indicate that Mothman may be a guardian angel of mind-bending proportions. Increasingly, the Mothman events look to be as important and miraculous as the famous events at Fatima. Interwoven with these personal diaries are discussions between Colvin and other witnesses and experts that reach back into the mysterious history of America, giving a fuller context for the phenomenon. Colvin also tracks the relationship between the paranormal and the media - how the two seemingly work together to help form public opinion and belief. Also included is a chapter of rare material from John Keel, Gray Barker, and others on the dreaded Men in Black and their impact on the early days of ufology. Mothman Shrieks features insightful forewords by Ted Torbich, host of 'The Stench of Truth' show, and Eugenia Macer-Story, editor of'Yankee Oracle Gazette.' Also featured are fascinating interviews with researchers like Adam Gorightly, Keith Hansen, Robert Denton, Jr., Louise Lacey, and Sandy Nichols. 'Really grabs you...' -George Knapp, Coast to Coast AM 'Prepare to have your mind blown, reorganized, and elevated...' -Nick Redfern, author, 'The Pyramids and the Pentagon' 'A breakthrough in how we perceive the mysterious...' -Greg Bishop, Radio Misterioso 'Better than the Hollywood version of Mothman..." Bonnie Brault, Ph.D. "Informative, entertaining adventures in synchronicity..." -Peter Moon, author, "Montauk Book of the Living" "May activate one's interdimensional tendencies...' -Alexandra Bruce, author, 'Beyond the Bleep' and 'Beyond the Secret' 'One of the few researchers truly on the cutting edge...' -Ted Torbich 'Fascinating... A huge book...' -Tessa B. Dick, author, 'Remembering Firebright: My Life With Philip K. Dick'"
The picture below - of Andy - was taken by me in December 2010 when, along with various other friends in the Fortean field, we spent a week or so roaming around Los Angeles, Giant Rock, and George Van Tassel's Integratron in search of all-things bizarre...
