MONSTER OF THE MONTH: WINTER MONSTER MENAGERIE
We're starting off 2018 with a look at a few weird creatures associated with cold weather. From Sheepsquatch to the Tatzelwurm, we'll be spending the month examining those monsters that put an extra chill in the winter air. So lock your doors and windows, stoke the fire, and huddle up with us as we take a look at some of our fortean favorites this February.
PARANORMAL ART PORTAL: SAMANTHA WRIGHT
February's featured artist is Samantha Wright, a professional graphic designer and aspiring comic/concept artist working out of Austin, Texas. In her spare time, Samantha produces a lot of fan art and original comics covering a variety of topics, particularly those having to do with mythology and folklore. Samantha's style strongly reflects her love of comic books, and she lists some of her main influences as Mike Mignola and Ben Caldwell.
BOOK of the MONTH: BIGFOOT: WEST COAST WILD MEN by TIMOTHY RENNER
This month we're excited to read Bigfoot: West Coast Wild Men by Timothy Renner. It takes an historical look at tales of Sasquatch in the western United States; collecting newspaper accounts from the late nineteenth to early twentieth centuries. This book promises "tales of huge gorillas roaming wild in the California hills, hairy giants haunting Oregon, and wild men attacking women in Washington." And that sounds absolutely perfect to keep us occupied until springtime, when we can get back out into nature in search of the Sasquatch.
