This week marks the official release of my new book: Monster Files: A Look Inside Government Secrets and Classified Documents on Bizarre Creatures and Extraordinary Animals! Published by New Page Books, Monster Files takes a long and winding trip into dark and foreboding territory. It is territory where the strange and the monstrous dwell. It’s a place filled with bizarre creatures, nightmarish beasts, and terrible things of the woods, skies, and oceans. And it’s filled with something else, too: (a) agents and employees of government; and (b) secret files filled with astounding tales of creatures of types that should not exist, but which just might.
For absolutely decades, rumors, tales and legends have surfaced to the effect that government agencies – all around the world and since at least the early to mid 1800s onwards – have been secretly collecting and carefully studying data on bizarre beasts, extraordinary animals, and strange creatures.
