The Chupacabras remains a paranormal phenomenon not well understood where it appears, and even less so with interested US readers. Chupacabras and Other Mysteries provides the first substantive English work dealing with the bugger. It relies on the primary research and work of Jorge and Marleem Martin, who made first-hand investigations of animal mutilations attributed to the Chupacabras in the Puerto Rican municipalities of Orocovis and Morovis, and the book also uses the work of Jose Victor Ramirez, Willie Durand Urbina, Salvador Freixedo and other researchers, plus countless journalistic sources (El Vocero, El Nuevo Dia, The San Juan Star.) Chupacabras and Other Mysteries includes a photo section, none of the elusive creatures, but of kittens they "exsanquinated," haunts, and the original sketch based on eyewitness memory. Chupacabras is not a run-of-the-mill hide and seek type bigfoot. A wide variety of paranormal activity attends its visits. As UFO researcher Marc Davenport points out in the introduction, the creatures' reported eye-beams do not behave like the bio-luminesence of fireflies and deep sea fish. Chupacrabras is something else again, and this volume contributes greatly to helping figure out what.

I must admit I bought this book as a rather light read. I expected to be finished within a few months. Bathroom material only. However as I got past the first chapter I began to read it more steadily. AFter only three days of owning the book I had read the entirety of the book and had began to search for small details. Anyone interested in Chupacabras or crypto-zoology, or even "Goblin universe" phenomena should check this book out. It reads easily and has a very nice style. I thought something would be lost in the translation, however I do not think so. All ideas are given a footing here (although not always equal) and it makes the mystery of Chupacabras very intriguing.

Chupacabras and Other Mysteries by Scott Corrales was an excellent read. As the title suggests, this book focuses on the chupacabras, and its infamous exploits around Central America.

The most outstanding feature of this book is, undoubtedly, the source of the information. The events detailed here occurred primarily in the South and Central Americas, in what are predominantly Spanish speaking countries. We English speaking earthlings from the north face two levels of difficulty in obtaining these extraordinary reports: The first, and most obvious, is that the accounts are natively documented in Spanish. Furthermore, there is a general lack of interest demonstrated by the northern media in publishing such events occurring in other parts of the globe. To put it another way, the stories here are rather unlikely to reach the English speaking nations of the world, and even if they did, you would need to speak Spanish to read them! Well, thanks to Scott Corrales, these barriers have been lifted. His work concentrates on translating and interpreting this valuable information into easily readable English. These are not your old rehashed tales from the States; these are fresh accounts which should grab the interest of any paranormal researcher. Furthermore, the text does not feel like a rough translation; it holds its own on a technical level and appears to be well edited.

The depth of information in the book certainly adds to its value. It includes data from a variety of sources: indirect reports from researchers, first hand interview quotation, and direct entries from local news publications. At over 200 pages, this is not a cursory treatment of the chupacabras.

I fealt that Chupacabras and Other Mysteries was a good book if your into it. It had some loco information on the feared bloodsucker. The only thing that upset me was that it only had drawings of the beast, but I suppose any actual pictures would be disturbingly cheesy. If your looking for information on this creepy guy, this is definately the book to choose.
