Mothman: Two New Books
Andy Colvin, who has already written and published no less than six books on Mothman, now has another two to add to the list!!
They are Beyond the Prophecies of Mothman and Inside the Prophecies of Mothman.
Here's the background on the books, from Andy himself:
"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.
"Beyond the Prophecies of Mothman chronicles the thoughts and feelings of several Mothman experiencers and researchers, beginning five years after the attacks (2008-2010). These revealing letters, penned during a wave of odd synchronicities, sightings, and encounters, indicate that Mothman may be a guardian angel of mind-bending proportions.
"Interwoven with these personal diaries are replies and other posts from Colvin, which reach back into the mysterious history of the Ohio Valley, providing not only a fuller context for the phenomenon, but also illustrations of how the paranormal and the media work together to help form public opinion and belief.
"In their thought-provoking attempts to figure out just what Mothman might be up to, Colvin and company look at every possible myth, legend, and conspiracy theory they can find, leading the reader on a wild, entertaining, and often poignant ride into high-strangeness. "
And, if you're wondering, Andy's other books are The Mothman's Photographer, The Mothman's Photographer II, The Mothman's Photographer III, The Mothman Speaks, The Mothman Shrieks, and The Mothman Squeaks.
