In Search of Lake Monsters - Reviewed

My new Mysterious Universe article is a review of the brand new edition of Peter Costello's 1974 book, In Search of Lake Monsters. It begins as follows...

"Over the course of almost a decade, Anomalist Books have published numerous, excellent, new titles, such as Lyle Blackburn’s The Beast of Boggy Creek and Mac Tonnies’ The Cryptoterrestrials. And they have done something else too: republished a number of high-quality books from years long gone. The list includes John Keel’s Jadoo, Jacques Vallee’s Dimensions, and Brad Steiger’s Strange Guests.

"Well, there is now another book to add to the growing number of older titles that Anomalist Books are bringing to new audiences – and to 'veteran' audiences that might need to replace their well-worn originals! The book in question is Peter Costello’s In Search of Lake Monsters. It’s important to note that the resurfacing of Costello’s book is not an exercise in nostalgia. Anomalist Books are very careful and discerning when it comes to the issue of what should be republished and what should stay firmly forgotten. Costello’s work definitely falls into the first category."

And here's the link to the complete article.
