Produktinformation

Produktbeschreibungen

Pressestimmen

"Godfrey frequently draws from myth and folklore and cites cases from history and pop culture, demonstrating extensive knowledge of her subject matter. The book will prove a handy encyclopedia for enthusiastic cryptozoologists of all ages."
—Publishers Weekly

Praise for REAL WOLFMEN:

"Her chilling story of deep woods journeys will fascinate you."
—Whitley Strieber's Dreamland

"An amazing and well-researched look at werewolves in the US."
—Werewolves.com

“She has the ability to send chills up and down your spine.”
Brad Steiger, author of Real Ghosts, Restless Spirits, and Haunted Places

“Real Wolfmen
is a riveting work of amazing scope and depth. You’ll be hooked from the first page.”
Rosemary Ellen Guiley, author of The Encyclopedia of Vampires and Werewolves

"Godfrey impresses me with the sheer totality of her information.  Nothing is left unexplored, if possible."
—John R. Ellis, Fourth Day Universe

“If I was to ask you what two words are most relevant to the phenomenon of werewolves and lycanthropes you might well say “Full” and “Moon.” Or, “Silver” and “Bullet.” Well, you’re definitely on the right track, but I say those two words are “Linda” and “Godfrey”! Yep, not only is Linda the most well-known chronicler of all-things wolfman-themed, but she’s certainly the most prolific one, too. This new title from Linda is one that I definitely recommend to anyone and everyone who has voraciously devoured Linda’s previous studies of the werewolf phenomenon. And if you’re a newcomer to the subject, and want to learn what it’s really all about, it’s just about the most important book you can read on the phenomenon to date. And I don’t write words like that lightly.”
—Nick Redfern, Mysterious Universe

"By the time you finish Real Wolfmen: True Encounters in Modern America, you just might believe."
—Jason Carter, The Writers Journey

"It is hard to believe that such a creature could exist. However, the witness accounts in Real Wolfmen are often very compelling. Pick up a copy and see for yourself."
Alejandro Rojas, Huffington Post

Von Oscar VINE-PRODUKTTESTER am 19. Mai 2015
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
Wer schon mehrere Bücher von Linda Godfrey und Loren Coleman gelesen hat, kann meines Erachtens auf dieses verzichten. Es bietet weder neue Erkenntnisse noch auch nur neue Thesen, sondern listet allerlei Sichtungen auf, die dem Kenner dieser Sorte Literatur dermaßen bekannt vorkommen, dass es sich ebenso gut um Zitate aus älteren Veröffentlichungen handeln könnte. Godfreys spaßige Wortspiele und Bemerkungen zählten noch nie zu ihren Stärken und rechtfertigen daher allein keine Kaufempfehlung.

HASH(0x99259288) von 5 Sternen A Cryptozoologist's Dream! 19. September 2014
Von Matthew Scott Baker - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
Because I am a staunch horror fan, a part of me believes some monsters in our lore might be real. Bigfoot is a perfect example of this. There have been way too many sightings and photos to deny something exists out there in the woods…it might not be what we think, but there’s something there. It’s this fact-based optimism that drives author Linda S. Godfrey’s latest book, AMERICAN MONSTERS: A HISTORY OF MONSTER LORE, LEGENDS, AND SIGHTINGS IN AMERICA. Chocked full of information and fact with only a hint of speculation, this tome is a cryptozoologist’s dream.

I’ve studied some of the more common monsters known in American folklore, however Godfrey introduces several in this book that I am not familiar with. I love this aspect, as it opened my eyes to new mysteries of the unknown. But in addition, she gives a few fresh takes on some existing creatures as well. This diversity is a big part of the draw for this title and one of the biggest points for its promotion.

AMERICAN MONSTERS is written well. It is not stiff and dry like a text book, but instead is presented more like short tales from a storyteller. This informal tone makes the book a much more enjoyable read, and it helps present the information in a lighter manner.

The book is broken up into three sections: Monsters By Air, Monsters By Sea, and Monsters By Land. Each section is then spliced into several smaller chunks, which are based on specific creatures and/or regions in which the creature is located. My favorite area in this book is the Monsters By Sea section. Sea sightings seem to be older and have more witnesses than any other type of sighting. For this reason, I find they are the most plausible.

AMERICAN MONSTERS is a definite win for me, and I recommend picking it up. Whether you are a veteran cryptozoologist or just a hobby reader, chances are this book will enlighten you in some form or fashion. It is available now in a variety of formats.

HASH(0x98b3c840) von 5 Sternen An Entertaining Read 29. September 2014
Von Just An Opinion - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
An enjoyable book if you like this kind of stuff, which I do. My only disappointments are the amount of time dedicated to sightings of so-called sea monsters, and the fact that the book in my view just tries to cover way too much ground.

For me, sea serpent tales and stories from "way back when" are just not very intriguing, nor are all the well-intended attempts to categorize the various "monsters". I think it serves to slow down the flow of the book, and that is why I gave it three stars rather than four, or five. However, I admit that is just my personal preference; your mileage may vary.

If you like off-beat, escapist, speculative, semi-spooky fare, as I do, you would most likely dig this book.

HASH(0x98b43d20) von 5 Sternen Wonderfully Comprehensive Compendium of America's Cryptid Critters! 9. September 2014
Von Sean F. Whitley - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
This new tome from Linda S. Godfrey is hard to put down. She not only shares new reports of the Man-Wolves/Dogmen from her past book, but also a plethora of sightings of cryptids alleged to roam the air, waters, and lands across the US. Well-written and organized and featuring stylish artwork, this one is a must for one's cryptozoology library. - Sean Whitley, Director, "Southern Fried Bigfoot"

HASH(0x98b43a14) von 5 Sternen A Really Good Book! 5. Dezember 2014
Von jamaracat - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
I enjoyed this book very much. There are lots of detailed eye witness accounts, and it examines a large range of cryptids. The author doesn't try to sensationalize the subject matter, and she gives a well written and level headed analysis. I like her underlying assumption that strange creatures do exist, and she gives eye witnesses the benefit of the doubt that they *did* see and/or experience something out of the ordinary. She then puts the reports in the context of similar reports, and presents background details about the areas where the occurrences took place. I like that she looks at the "phenomenon" of the experiences as a whole, and that they're possibly related in ways we don't yet understand. She is open minded in her ideas of explaining these occurrences, while also remaining well-grounded and professional. This is a very well written, serious, and unsensationalized book about a topic that is, unfortunately, too often marginalized and not taken seriously. My thanks to the author for providing this thoughtful, and entertaining, book! I look forward to reading her other books.

HASH(0x98b43d74) von 5 Sternen Entertaining and Cryptozoology's Go-To Encyclopedia for America's Weird Creatures 3. September 2014
Von T. J. Roberts - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
Ms. Godfrey postulates on the possible existence of many of the mysterious monsters reported around the US. by presenting us with the facts and her interpretations in a well-written, ordered and entertaining fashion! This book is sure to be the cryptozoologist's "go-to" book for years to come and should be on the reading list of anyone interested in unknown creatures here in America. I thoroughly enjoyed this book as I have all of the other books that Ms. Godfrey has written. I am glad someone is documenting these odd sightings and occurrences; also glad it's NOT me seeing any of this frightening stuff!!
