Loren Coleman: A Complete Book List 2020

Having been involved in cryptozoology since 1960, the Year 2020 will be my 60th year investigating.

In 2020, I will mark 45 years since my first book in 1975 was published, and it will be the 42th anniversary since Creatures of the Outer Edge was published.

At 20, I had the experience of seeing my first thoughts in print, in Outdoor Illinois.

Rather late. I have to write more,” was my reaction.

As my general brief biography relates:  During the second half of 1975, Loren Coleman’s first book was published by Warner Books, when he was 27.  He was in the process, in August of that year, of moving from California to New England.  He found the first copy of his first book on the shelves of a bookstore in the Midwest, even before he was able to receive a copy from his New York publisher. Since then, Coleman has written, edited, and contributed to many other books, as primary author, coauthor, editor, or contributor.

“How many” books have I “written” depends directly on how one wishes to count the many tomes, editions, revisions, series, and other products of Loren Coleman’s book-length writings.

2016Books

The number of books associated with my writings in them or completely from me today numbers over 100.

Two recent books even have chapters about me. They are:

Mysterious America: The Ultimate Guide to the Nation’s Weirdest Wonders, Strangest Spots, and Creepiest Creatures. by Loren Coleman. NY: Paraview Pocket – Simon and Schuster, 2007.

How do books change over time? The Paraview Pocket – Simon and Schuster edition (seen directly above) of Mysterious America appeared in 2007 and is a good case to examine.

Since first appearing in 1983, the entire original book has been rewritten, internally, often. New chapters have been added, some retained but expanded, and the actual text has been changed by 50%.

In the 1983 edition, for example, the two mystery cat chapters totaled just 23 pages. In the 2007 edition, there are now over 60 pages of text in those two cryptid feline chapters alone, plus the new detailed listings of Eastern and Western North American mystery cat sightings as appendices.

In the 1983 volume, there was no index, and so, I wanted that corrected.  In 2007, you’ll find about 275 people (from Arment to Zarzynski), places (from Abington, IN to Yakin County, SC), cryptids and other items in small print over the eight pages of the new index. Down through the years, the 1983, 1989, 2001, and 2007 editions appear to be different books because they actually are, inside and out, with new covers and greatly changed contents, even though various publishers kept the essence of the best-selling classic title in intact for identification and marketing reasons.
