History is memory writ large, and Dragons have long memories. Most people—even many an ardent dracophile— believe Dragon history began when our ancestors first saw them landing at the neighborhood water hole, scattering herds of elephants and quagga, crocodile floats, and leaps of leopards. And to an extent, they are right: history needs witnesses and a record of its passing. Its writing and telling imbues it with weight and truth. That said, if a Dragon soars through the forest and nobody sees it, is it really there? The answer is a resounding YES. So, let's take a step back. Way back. Long before Homo sapiens memorialized it on painted cave walls and petroglyphed ...

Monsters are monsters are monsters. Big, small, hairy, slimy, finned, clawed, two legs, four legs, or none; unknown to the world, except to those who encounter them. Or are they unknown?

Zoology considered the North American wood bison extinct until a population of two hundred was stumbled upon in Alberta, Canada, in 1957.

Rainier, Washington State in the summer of 2011—had Dan in a state of near-hysteria. An enthusiastic outdoorsman, Dan spent four days hiking around the huge, 14,000-foot-plus high mountain. He would live to regret doing that. It was around 3:00 a.m. when Dan woke with a start and with an ...

In my latest book, Otherworldly Encounters, I wrote about some of my expeditions into the UFO phenomena. There are four areas that I work through every time that I am on a case: research the event, contact witnesses for interviews, learn about the location, and if possible, attempt an investigation of the encounter and document the entire process. I conduct these onsite investigations so I can fully understand and immerse myself into the witness's encounter. By doing so, I have the potential to capture what they saw on video or to find some trace evidence, potentially confirming their experience. If nothing happens, at least I will know the conditions in which their encounter occurred; ...
