Oh wow. Um, yeah. So, this book starts out pretty well; it's about a series of sightings in and around Point Pleasant, WV of "The Mothman," a strange creature with a manlike body, enormous glowing red eyes, and wings. I find this kind of thing fascinating in a folklore/sociological kind of way, so I like to read about such sightings. Like I said, this starts out pretty well. Keel is a witty storyteller and draws a lot of interesting parallels between the Mothman and other sightings throughout history of giant birds, dragons, etc. Then things start to get really weird. Keel believes that all of these sightings (Bigfoot, UFOs, sea monsters) are connected -- they're actually beings from another dimension that are intruding onto ours. Okayyyy... Believe it or not, this is not where I really started to lose track of him. It was when he starts in about how the alien creatures from another dimension are toying with him, tapping his phone, impersonating him in the field, and so on that I really just lost patience. The writing gets worse and more confusing and convoluted, and Keel basically comes off like a paranoid schizophrenic. I really wanted to know if there was any truth to his claims about all the weird things happening to him, but there's really no way of knowing.

Curt Rowlett, December 2, 2006 (view all comments by Curt Rowlett)
The true story of veteran Fortean researcher John Keel's 1966 investigation of the Point Pleasant, West Virginia "Mothman" sightings.

This bizarre entity was sighted by numerous credible witnesses, and, along with a series of other weird occurrences that included strange lights in the sky, animal mutilations, and paranormal disturbances, culminated in a disaster that would become news around the world.

An absolute classic in the annals of paranormal research.
