It is our good fortune that Rosemary Ellen Guilley has authored "Monsters of West Virginia" in Stackpole's "monsters" series. Ms. Guiley has authored close to 50 books on different aspects on the paranormal & has done a great deal of work in the field -- to the point where she herself has experienced some of the high strangeness that other authors & researchers only write about. She has walked the trails in the infamous TNT area (alleged home of the Mothman), witnessed many different types of unexplained phenomena, spoken one on one with many of the experiencers of the paranormal, & even encountered a possible dopppelganger!! Ms. Guiley not only brings her excellent scolarship to this work, where she has uncovered new information about old cases, like the Grafton Monster, but she has also consulted with several experts in the field including Frank Feschino who has provided updated information on the Flatwoods Monster case of 1952.
It dosen't get much better than encountering strange blobs, flying manta rays, Snallygasters, a fresh look at Point Pleasants Mothman,& other creepy denizens that lurk in the shadows & hide in the hollars.
This is a fun book, but it should be noted that the encounters reported are by some very credible witnesses. These reported incidents do not all fall under the heading of folklore. There is an undertone of something very serious in the way the book is structured. Rosemary Ellen Guiley dosn't just tell interesting stories. Using her considerable background in the paranormal, she has connected some of the dots --- made connections between seemingly different types of phenomena that at first glance one wouldn't think could possibly have a connection --- like believe it or not, Sasquatch & UFO's !!
Be sure & stay tuned for the last chapter. The author details an investigation that she conducted in an "Enchanted Hollar" where a credible young couple that has a home there have experienced & continue to experience unknown creatures, strange lights, phantoms, & a whole array of the paranormal.
Yes, if you go to West Virginia, make sure your car is in perfect running order --- or your story may end up in the next book.
This is the first book that I've read by Rosemary Ellen Guiley,although I've seen her name mentioned many times,as a certified expert of the unknown. As of today,finishing this book,I can agree with that statement,and I will be buying more of her books in the future.
An undoubtedly beautiful state with decent people, and more than its share of odd tales, as well as all manner of creepy encounters with the unknown.
