LOREN COLEMAN has been investigating cryptozoological evidence and folklore since the Abominable Snowmen caught his interest more than five decades ago. He is the author of numerous popular books on cryptozoology, including Mysterious America, Bigfoot!: The True Story of Apes in America, and Mothman and Other Curious Encounters, and he regularly appears on radio and television programs—including National Public Radio, Coast to Coast AM, History, Travel Channel, NBC, and other media—as an expert on strange creatures and inexplicable phenomena.
Today, as one of the world’s leading cryptozoologists, Coleman is an honorary member of the British Columbia Scientific Cryptozoology Club, a life member of the International Society of Cryptozoology, and an inaugural inductee of the Roger Patterson Memorial Bigfoot Museum in Portland, Oregon. He travels extensively for fieldwork and lectures and writes a daily blog at the Internet’s most popular cryptozoology news site, Cryptomundo. Coleman is the director of the International Cryptozoology Museum in Portland, Maine.
