CRYPTID CREATURES: A Field Guide
Little Bigfoot/Sasquatch Books • September 2019
Tag line: Explore the fascinating world of cryptozoology with this fun guide, filled with eyewitness accounts of 50 cryptids found throughout the world, some of which have been proven real.
About CRYPTID CREATURES: Cryptozoology is the study of mysterious creatures that fall between the realm of real and imaginary on the scientific spectrum. CRYPTID CREATURES offers a closer look at 50 of these amazing creatures, examining the best possible evidence for each, including scientific papers, magazine and newspaper articles, and credible eyewitness accounts. The 50 cryptids are arranged in order alphabetically, and in addition to speculative illustrations, include details like when they were first reported, whether they are terrestrial, aerial, or aquatic, and each have a reality rating of 1 to 6, in which 1 means that the cryptid has been confirmed as a hoax, and 6 means the cryptid has been proven as real. This page-turning guide will inspire curious readers to investigate more on their own, and maybe even help to prove if a cryptid is a hoax or is real.

About the illustrator: Rick Spears was born in California and relocated to Georgia five years later. As with most young children, he was fascinated by dinosaurs and spent many hours drawing pictures of prehistoric animals in various scenes of combat. Time passed and, though still a pretty good artist, his teenaged interests replaced dinosaurs with Japanese monsters, Star Wars, and girls (not necessarily in that order). It wasn't until after college that Rick rekindled his love of prehistory and began to fancy himself a paleoartist. Since then, his dinosaur and cryptid art has found its way into various books, magazines, websites, and even a board game. His sculptures can be seen in several museums and collections throughout the southeastern United States. Rick currently resides in Georgia with his family, who finds his weird projects just a part of everyday life.
