Cryptid

Cryptid is the culmination of a project I began in a literary program years ago.
Though the characters, places, and events exist exclusively within my
imagination and between this book's covers, much of the story's premise is rooted
in the world ...

"Outstanding, highly recommended! Eric Penz's fast-paced novel, with its micro-textbook on Gigantopithecus, was an easy pick for my Top Books of 2005." -Loren Coleman, author of Bigfoot! The True Story of Apes in America. The line between history and legend can be deceptively thin-too thin perhaps to maintain the claim that one is exclusively fact and one fiction. Such may be the case with the history of Lewis and Clark. For the fact is that two hundred years after they were handpicked by Thomas Jefferson to lead an extraordinary expedition to the Pacific coast legends still persist regarding unexplained gaps in the explorers' field journals. Call it legend, call it history, Cryptid tells the riveting story of conspiracy theorists who have new evidence of a centuries-old cover-up. When a cryptozoologist, a paleontologist, and a Jefferson descendant begin connecting the dots, they threaten to do more than unveil the well-guarded scientific discovery that lies at the heart of the ancient secret; they threaten to rewrite American history. That is if they can survive a conspiracy that dates back to the Founding Fathers-the very same that haunted Lewis to his grave. It may be that one of our nation's first secrets is still being kept. Cryptid illustrates how the human act of seeking the truth can be the very element that destroys it. Two centuries in the making, Cryptid is the final chapter of the Lewis and Clark story. And, as with any good tale, the best secrets have been kept until the end.

Cryptid Awakening

"Cryptid" is a relatively new word used among professionals and laypeople to
denote an animal of interest to cryptozoology. John E. Wall of Manitoba coined it
in a letter published in the summer 1983 issue of the ISC Newsletter (vol. 2, no.

The Loch Ness Monster, Bigfoot, the Abominable Snowman- these are the names of the elusive beasts that have caught the eye and captured the imaginations of people around the world for centuries. Recently, tales of these ""monsters"" have been corroborated by an increase in sightings, and out of these legends a new science has been born: cryptozoology-the study of hidden animals. Cryptid Awakening contains nearly two hundred entries, including cryptids the name given to these unusual beasts, new animal finds, and the explorers and scientists who search for them.

The Cryptid Catcher

Besides, he didn't like being a cryptid catcher all alone. Having people he could
talk to besides cantankerous Douglas, who sent assassins after him, wouldn't be
so bad. But how could he trust them to keep the immortal cryptid a secret?

A Reading the West Longlist Pick for 2018 The Cryptid Catcher is the first book in a monstrously fun middle-grade duology by Lija Fisher about a boy who inherits a job hunting legendary creatures. After Clivo Wren's archaeologist father dies mysteriously, the newly orphaned thirteen-year-old finds out the truth: his dad was no archaeologist. He was actually a cryptid catcher, known for finding elusive beasts like the bloodsucking chupacabra. His goal: discover the one extraordinary cryptid whose blood grants immortality—before the knowledge falls into the wrong hands. The mission remains unfinished, and now there's only one person who can take the renowned cryptid catcher's place: Clivo. He may not know the first thing about monster hunting, but he's willing to give it a try—because anything beats staying home with his salsa-crazy aunt and her neurotic cats.

The Cryptid Keeper

So he pointed to the cages of the blue tiger and the Ugly Merman, the other
cryptids whose special powers Clivo knew might be helpful in defeating Douglas.
He wasn't sure what most of the other cryptids could do and figured it was best to

Marty and Grace O'Hara's globe-trotting parents disappeared while on assignment for a nature magazine, and now they're living with their Uncle Wolfe, a scientist fascinated by cryptids--creatures that appear in myths but haven't been proven to exist, such as the Loch Ness Monster. Wolfe is planning an expedition to New Zealand to track a giant squid, and he's rented a huge (and possibly haunted) freighter for the trip. But someone on board is determined to sabotage their mission--and if Marty and Grace keeping poking their noses into things, they might end up the saboteur's next victims!

intelligence, are one of the most ... slightly more willing to entertain the idea of a
cryptid's existence—especially a local cryptid—than they are of higher-order

Discover where faeries and other mythical creatures are hiding in our modern, urban environment with this beautifully illustrated guide to uncovering magical beings. From the musty corners of libraries to the darkest depths of urban sewers, faeries, boggarts, redcaps, and other fantastical species can be found all around us—but only if we know where to look. And like every other being in the modern world, these wonderous creatures have been forced to adapt to the climate, industrial, and cultural changes of the modern era. Many formerly common creatures from akeki to cave trolls have been driven out by the urban sprawl, technological advancements, and climate change while others, including ether sprites and brownies, have been able to thrive in abundance, creating homes within electrical hotbeds and massive landfills. Featuring descriptions of magical creatures from around the globe, this encyclopedic collection details the history and adaptability of more than fifty different species of fae. Describing little-known and fascinating creatures such as the Luck Pigeon of Baltimore, the akaname of Eastern Asia, and the konderong of South Africa, this book will expose readers to fantastical species from a variety of cultures and communities. Combining scholarship with modern lore and environmentalism, and featuring stunning hand-drawn illustrations, Finding Faeries is a captivating look at the fantastical beings that inhabit our world today.

Secret Service Agent Adam Hunter, tired of the politics and mess of Washington D.C. lands a transfer out of town. Newly assigned to a task force responsible for solving a rash of savage murders in the rural Appalachian Mountains, things quickly take an unnatural turn. The victims found are strewn among the trees like macabre scarecrows, and the high profile murderer everyone is searching for may not be to blame after all. Something ancient and evil has haunted these parts since the settlers ignored the warnings of the first peoples. Now the creature is stalking again, and it's up to Adam to put a stop to it. Making matters worse are a clandestine government agency keeping tabs on him, drug runners eager to keep their turf quiet, and an escaped convict complicating matters. Maybe D.C. wasn't so bad after all...
