Editorial Reviews


"...masterpieces of deductive reasoning...sure to get your gray matter ticking overtime while having a hoot to boot. Recommended." -- Science a Go Go, August 2006

"...these two books were the vanguard of today's fortean literature. Their writing was savvy, knowledgeable and yet current." -- Fortean Times, August 2006

Format: Paperback
It is a sad but inescapable fact of the publishing world that most books, regardless of their quality, eventually pass out of print. For every work immortalized in new editions, thousands fade away to the oblivion of used bookstores, remainder tables, and dusty library shelves. It is a pleasure, then, to mark the reappearance in a single volume of two classic investigative works from the 1970s, penned in concert by renowned Fortean authors Jerome Clark and Loren Coleman. Both writers have prospered since their first collaborations, with 50-odd books published between them, but readers anxious to peruse their maiden efforts during recent years have found the search as arduous as any hunt for Sasquatch or the Loch Ness Monster.

But no longer.

The Unidentified (1975) describes the UFO phenomenon and related subjects, including fairies and other mysterious entities, hollow-earth theories, men in black, and religious epiphanies. Dedicated to pioneer anomalist Charles Fort, it follows trails blazed by the master and extends them, granting Clark and Coleman room to spread their wings as researchers and authors.

Creatures of the Outer Edge (1978) focuses more narrowly on unknown animals, but once again--as indicated by its dedication to deceased outré theorist John Keel--it wanders far afield from pure flesh-and-blood cryptozoology. Bigfoot and his fellow "manimals" share space not only with elusive cats, the Mothman, and other monsters, but with alien visitors as well.

A new introduction to the omnibus edition explains that the authors have changed their minds (or, at least, their perspectives) on certain subjects covered in these early volumes, but to their credit, they have left the original texts undisturbed and unredacted.

I actually read Creatures of the Outer Edge back around 1972 or so. I thought it was fascinating. Back then I read lots of books related to the supernatural, UFOs, etc. This book was my favorite. I plan to purchase it and read it again. I highly recommend this book.

As with Stan Gordon's Excellent Book SILENT INVASION, this too has plenty of research and High Strangeness. THIS is one of my favorite reads and will
scare the living YOU KNOW WHAT out of you.
Growing up in northwest Indiana in the early seventies, there was plenty of spooky going around and I remember being a young teen when the MOMO story hit the news.
then LEGEND OF BOGGY CREEK blew my mind and scared me really good. My night time walk home past the woods still gives me the shivers to remember how frightened I was hearing every twig snap and branches moving. I just jogged a memory of being out camping with two friends in the state of Michigan during the early eighties and we were staying in a older small type trailer, on the edge of the woods. IT was pitch black nighttime and both my friends left to use the bathroom in the larger trailer where the parents of the one were staying. I waited for them to get back and seconds turned to minutes.... and then I started hearing IT in the woods. First small movements and crunching of leaves..... then quite as if someone was slowly and quietly sneaking up. I was frozen in there, too afraid to move....
Still my friends did not come back.... what the hell was taking them so long? then a definite branch crack sound right outside the back of the trailer.
THAT DID IT, I flew out of there and across the small field to the well lighted trailer filled with people.
My stupid friends had been chatting awhile with the family when I had asked, where were you guys?!
as we said our good nights to go back to the spooky trailer, there was a loud crash.
The parents turned on the floodlights and a huge tree had been pushed on top of the little spook trailer, denting the roof and side.

Those old enough to remember the classic, but short lived television show 'Kolchak, the Night Stalker' will fall in love with this book. Jerome Clark never fails to deliver, I would have paid three times the price for this book, it's that good. And unlike most authors who delve into these nefarious realms, Mr. Clark does not come off as if he forgot to take his psych meds this morning. I've said it about his other books and I'll repeat it here, reading Clark's books is like reading a stack of police reports, with Rod Serling and Karl Kolchak were the investigating officers. This book reminds me a lot of John Keel's 'Strange Creatures From Time and Space', which incidentally just came back in print (raggedy used copies were selling for hundreds of dollars prior to thius reprint). Lastly, Amazon sells the entire Kolchak series for around $20, so give yourself a lovely present and buy both of the above books and these dvds. The weekend is coming up so cancel that date and have this package second-day delivered. Pull down the shades, dead bolt the doors, order a pizza, and pour yourself a tall glass of beer (I prefer diet A&W myself) You might keep that pepper spray and baseball bat by the door in case that pizza kid is a shape-shifting mothman or MIB. Slide the money under the door, and don't forget a generous gratuity.
