John Keel's Strange Creatures From Time and Space, originally published in 1970 with artwork by Frank Frazetta, is a comprehensive encyclopedia of monsters from around the world, including: Fantastic flying saucer occupants; True psychic phenomena; Phantom killers of people and livestock; The full story of West Virginia's man-bird, "Mothman"; The elusive "Bigfoot", Sasquatch, and Yeti; Giants of Minnesota and the Appalachians; Sea serpents and lake creatures; Vampires and werewolves; Angels and demons' The dangerous and enigmatic Men in Black (MIB).
John A. Keel has been on the trail of weirdness for decades, investigating wild tales of alien abduction, hairy monsters, and mysterious entities that can terrify and even harm humans. He has become the top man in the field of the inexplicable.
Keel actually has explanations for the unusual things he recounts - which have long left others baffled. In this mountain of way-out evidence, he sees a pattern and draws original, startling, and convincing conclusions.
Keel was born in monster country - on a farm in Silver Lake, New York, home of one of America's native sea serpents. He began writing articles on UFOs in 1945, two years before the ufomania began. In 1952, he produced a Halloween broadcast from the Frankenstein Castle in Germany, and in 1954 he saw his first flying saucer while exploring the Upper Nile.
For years, Keel wandered around Asia in search of the secrets of the occult. The last American to enter Tibet from the Indian side, Keel spent weeks tracking the Yeti. After having written many books and magazine articles, Keel remains an open-minded skeptic. There is no one better qualified to report on and interpret today's flood of "anti-rational" evidence than Keel.

I bought this book because I like entertaining myself with questions of "what if?" I was extremely disappointed to discover that this book is just plain anti-science. After the author's disparaging remarks against scientists I just couldn't listen to another word. The narrator was fine, subject matter gets an F.
as always uses his personal thoughts to much, not enough facts from him. or he's jealous of not having experienced anything. guess you do what you can to sell books by changing the title. sad
"A good intro to ufology"
John Keel is still one of my favourite writers in the field of the unexplained. He researched well and presented his findings without theories but only suggestions as to what it all might mean
