The Book of Mothman - Just Published
Andy Colvin has yet another book out on Mothman! How many that makes now, I have no idea! Eight, nine, maybe even ten?
It looks to be a good one, though. Its title: The Book of Mothman.
Here, below, is the write-up from New Saucerian Press:
New Saucerian Press proudly presents John Keel’s "The Book of Mothman: Everything You Ever Wanted to Know About Reality Distortion But Were Afraid to Ask."
The chapters in this Keel-approved collection, culled from New Saucerian’s four recently published “Selected Writings of John Keel” books ("Flying Saucer to the Center of Your Mind," "The Outer Limits of the Twilight Zone," "Searching For the String," and "The Great Phonograph in the Sky"), coalesce to create a dazzling, mind-blowing “unified theory” concerning the paraphysical distortions and “glitches” seemingly invading our reality.
Many of the articles in "The Book of Mothman" were written years before Keel’s "Mothman Prophecies," while others were written years afterwards, making it a very unique and valuable source. With the addition of several 1990s lectures and an interview from 2003 – Keel’s last on Mothman – researchers and enthusiasts gain a better sense of just what was going on in West Virginia and the Ohio Valley in the 1960s and ‘70s.
True to form, Keel takes on the endless variety of high-strangeness surrounding Mothman and Mothman witnesses, such as UFOs, MIBs, little green men, hairy monsters, giants, animal mutilations, hypnotism, shapeshifting, psychological warfare, missing time, and phantom aircraft, automobiles, and humans.
This special edition features a brilliant introduction by Gray Barker, a recently discovered foreword by John Keel, and a note from the editor, Andy Colvin.
