Adventures in Cryptozoology

Hunting for Yetis, Mongolian Deathworms and Other Not-So-Mythical Monsters (Almanac of Mythological Creatures, Cryptozoology Book, Cryptid, Big Foot)

By Richard Freeman

Discover the Science of (not so) Imaginary Creatures

“The sheer depth of material covered in its pages is amazing”….” ―Fortean Times Magazine

#1 Bestseller in the Occult and Unexplained Mysteries

This is a book about monsters. From an early age we are taught that monsters do not exist. The reality is that monsters walk the earth today.

Explore the world through its most unlikely creatures. Cryptozoology, the study of hidden, monstrous, and legendary animals, is truly the art of discovering the unknown. Richard Freeman, Zoological Director of Centre for Fortean Zoology, has explored the corners of the five continents on the search for creatures that many people believe are non-existent. In this book, he shares the exciting stories of his investigations of the Yeti, Mongolian Deathworm, Loch Ness Monster, Orang-Pendak, Ninki-Naka, and more.

The line between myth and reality may be more narrow than you think. Cryptozoologists throughout the years have studied unknown species of reptiles, lake and sea creatures, apes, and hominins. The science and history of this field of study includes examples of creatures that were once thought to be mythological, but that have since been proven to exist.

Our monsters and ourselves. The history of fabulous beasts and our searches for them is a history of the cultures of the world and the secrets we keep. If you’re ready to begin your search for Sasquatch and learn to hunt monsters, Adventures in Cryptozoology is your guide.

In these pages you’ll find:

  • Tales of mythical, extinct, and out-of-place creatures
  • Hints about Bigfoot and other ape-men
  • Tips for equipping your own cryptozoology adventure, including all the gear, field craft, and resources you’ll need to record your findings

Analyzing the Future

Hard Science Fiction Films that Predict the Future

“As the breakneck advance of technology takes us into a world that is both exciting and menacing, sci-fi films give us an inkling of what is to come, and what we should avoid.” —Seth Shostak, senior astronomer at the SETI Institute, and host of Big Picture Science

#1 Best Seller in Nanotechnology and Computers & Technology

Dr. Andrew Maynard, physicist and leading expert on socially responsible development of emerging and converging technologies, examines science fiction movies and brings them to life.

Advances in science and technology are radically changing our world. Films from the Future is an essential guide to navigating a future dominated by complex and powerful new technologies. The jump from room-filling processors to pocket-size super computers is just the beginning. Artificial intelligence, gene manipulation, cloning, and inter-planet travel are all ideas that seemed like fairy tales but a few years ago. And now their possibility is very much here. But are we ready to handle these advances? As Maynard explains, “Viewed in the right way―and with a good dose of critical thinking―science fiction movies can help us think about and prepare for the social consequences of technologies we don’t yet have, but that are coming faster than we imagine.”

Films from the Future looks at twelve movies that take readers on a journey through the worlds of biological and genetic manipulation, human enhancement, cyber technologies, and nanotechnology. Gain a broader understanding of the complex relationship between science and society. The movies include old and new, and the familiar and unfamiliar, to provide a unique, entertaining, and ultimately transformative take on the power and responsibilities of emerging technologies.

If you have read books such as The Book of Why, The Science of Interstellar, or The Future of Humanity, you will love Films from the Future.
