I am happy to announce that my first two books, The Unidentified and Creatures of the Outer Edge, with Jerome Clark, long out of print, are now back.
First appearing in 1975 and 1978, these two classics have now been published as a special double edition with a new introduction. The Unidentified and Creatures of the Outer Edge: The Early Works of Jerome Clark and Loren Coleman is a new quality paperbound book from Anomalist Books.
The Unidentified has intriguing, limited, and marginal information on cryptozoology. Historically, Creatures of the Outer Edge is more significant, in terms of looking at strange creatures at the time it was published. Creatures of the Outer Edge surveys the cryptozoologically bountiful decade of the 1970s (and more those of the past) with accounts of Mothman, Owlmen, Thunderbirds, Phantom Panthers, Devil Dogs, Texas Big Birds, and, yes, of course, Bigfoot.
Some of the individually "named" local Bigfoot creatures first appeared in Creatures of the Outer Edge, including Momo (Missouri Monster), Lake Worth Monster, Murphysboro Mud Monster, the Enfield Thing, El Reno Chicken Man, Noxie Monster, Navajo’s Skinwalkers, and Yukon’s Bushman. Creatures of the Outer Edge also introduced the now-iconic Dover Demon for the first time to the general public.

P. S. Don’t believe what any of the online booksellers say about the book being unavailable now. It has been released, and if you want to purchase an autographed copy or copies, email me via my website. Thank you.
