Publisher's Summary

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.

Strange Creatures from Time and Space--John Keel

My mother bought this book when it first came out and it was my introduction to Cryptozoology. This book, while it may seem a bit dated now, was unique for it's time and I believe outstanding in it's presentation of stories and evidence of 'strange creatures'. It was this book that introduced the infamous Moth Man to most of the world. His detailed chronology of events that led to the collapse of the Silver bridge and his journaling of witnesses experiences with Bigfoot chilled me to the bone when i first read them.
I looked for years to find a physical copy of this book and when I finally did find some copies, they were always extremely expensive and rarely in good enough shape to warrant the purchase. When I saw that Audible finally added this fantastic book to their selections, I was just delighted!
If you are a lover of Cryptozoology, UFOs and other legendary 'bumps in the night' you need this book to add to your collection. This is the primer for all the Cryptozoology books that followed it!

A great introduction to Cryptids

If you find the unknown of interest to you, give this book a listen. Dates, Locations, and Names have been provided for one’s own research into many of these reports. As a skeptic I enjoyed listening to the eye witness accounts and forming my own opinions on the topics. While the reading can be dry at times the subject matter is always changing so you won’t be stuck on a topic too long. There is some mature themes in this book so beware for younger readers. Will listen to this as reference in the future for sure.

Very Informative !

A classic from 1969 - The wording and timeframe of this book is a bit outdated of course but it covers many subjects and viewpoints...
Definitely recommend this book 100%

Anti-science, no thanks

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

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.

same book as his other just different name

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
