Real Wolfmen: True Encounters in Modern America

While scanning Amazon for upcoming werewolf books I came across one I know that plenty of you will love – Real Wolfmen: True Encounters in Modern America by Linda S. Godfrey. The book comes out August 30 and judging by the description and the pre-release reviews it sounds like an amazing and well-researched look at werewolves in the US. Check out the details below:

What’s hiding in the woods? Here is the definitive account of today’s nationwide sightings of upright, canine creatures – which resemble traditional werewolves – and a thorough exploration of the nature and possible origins of the mysterious beast.

The U.S. has been invaded – if many dozens of eyewitnesses are to be believed – by upright, canine creatures that look like traditional werewolves and act as if they own our woods, fields, and highways. Sightings from coast to coast dating back to the 1930s compel us to ask exactly what these beasts are, and what they want.

Researcher, author and newspaper reporter Linda S. Godfrey has been tracking the manwolf since the early 1990. In Real Wolfmen she presents the only large-scale cataloguing and investigation of reports of modern sightings of anomalous, upright canids.  First-person accounts from Godfrey’s witnesses – who have encountered these creatures everywhere from outside their car windows to face-to-face on a late night stroll – describe the same human-sized canines: They are able to walk upright and hold food in their paws, interact fearlessly with humans, and suddenly and mysteriously disappear.

Godfrey explores the most compelling cases from the modern history of such sightings, along with the latest reports, and undertakes a thorough exploration of the nature and possible origins of the creature.”

Sounds pretty rad. It looks like the author put a whole lot of time and effort into gathering information and that always makes me happy.

What do you guys think? Will any of you pick up a copy?

@Jason McKinney: Linda Godfrey also wrote “The Beast of Bray Road: Tailing Wisconsin’s Werewolf”.

I listened to an interview with Linda Godfrey on Coast to Coast AM several days ago, and I totally loved it and its still got me scared! She is a fascinating person who is also obsessed with my favorite monster. I am definitely going to get “Real Wolfmen: True Encounters in Modern America” when it comes out, but I can’t wait that long so I am going to get “Michigan Dogman” by Linda Godfrey to hold me over.

[…] Paranormal Witness -The Wolf Pack Tonights episode centered around the case of Shelley and Eric Martin from Palmyra, Maine who clime they saw five man-wolf like creatures standing 6-7 ft. upright canids (sketch below) coming toward them on their yard. The couple retreated into the farmhouse, and later shone a spotlight on the yard and saw five pairs of yellow-green eyes staring up at them. Doing a bit of research I came across the book Real Wolfmen: True Encounters in Modern America by Linda S. Godfrey and in this book she puts forth two different theories to explain such creatures– they are either a specially adapted wolf species that have found it advantageous to walk and run around on their hind legs, or according to Native American lore, they are some type of spirit creature that can take on a physical presence. Im curious as to what residents of Maine think u can catch the full episode here Life After Paranormals | Paranormal Witness | Syfy Attachment 115865 Real Wolfmen: True Encounters in Modern America | Werewolves […]
