Forthcoming Cryptozoology Books of 2019
©Loren Coleman 2018
Every start of a year holds the promise of the new discovery of species inhabiting the fringes of the wild areas of the world. Most years are full of frustrations, as the big cryptids stay well hidden.
But in 2019, at least, we know some more good cryptozoology books will be published.
Let’s look at the hints that are on the horizon. (Needless to say, the book business is a secretive affair, so the ones below are projects I’ve been alerted to recently. If you know more, please share.)
