About John LeMay
John LeMay is from Roswell, New Mexico, and has written numerous books and articles on both the Southwest and vintage cinema. His best known book is Tall Tales and Half Truths of Billy the Kid, a collection of far-out folklore on the famous desperado published in 2015, and The Big Book of Japanese Giant Monster series. Before this LeMay authored three books in Arcadia's Images of America series including the titles Roswell (2008); Chaves County (2009); and Towns of Lincoln County (2010). After this he did two books for Noe Torres's publisher Roswell Books out of Edinburg, TX. Roswell, USA: Towns That Celebrate UFOs, Lake Monsters, Bigfoot, and Other Weirdness (2011) focusses on towns across America that use local legends to promote tourism. Next LeMay and Noe Torres joined forces to co-author the YA Non-Fiction title The Real Cowboys and Aliens: UFO Encounters of the Old West (2011) which as the title suggests covers actual newspaper accounts from 1800s America detailing alien encounters. In 2012 LeMay teamed with Roger Burnett, director for the Historical Society for Southeastern New Mexico, to write Legendary Locals of Roswell for Arcadia in 2012. In addition to these works LeMay has served as President of the Board of Directors for the Historical Society for Southeastern New Mexico in Roswell and has a regular historical column in Vision Magazine. Among magazines to publish his works on film are G-Fan, the world's longest running "fanzine;" Mad Scientist, covering genre films from the 40s,50s,60s and 70s; Xenorama, a wild and eclectic grab-bag of topics ranging from Godzilla to Kung Fu; and the prestigious Cinema Retro, covering cinema from the 1960s and 1970s. LeMay also writes for True West.
