Description du produit

Revue de presse

"Her chilling story of deep woods journeys will fascinate you."
—Whitley Strieber's Dreamland

"An amazing and well-researched look at werewolves in the US."
—Werewolves.com

“She has the ability to send chills up and down your spine.”
Brad Steiger, author of Real Ghosts, Restless Spirits, and Haunted Places

“Real Wolfmen
is a riveting work of amazing scope and depth. You’ll be hooked from the first page.”
Rosemary Ellen Guiley, author of The Encyclopedia of Vampires and Werewolves

"Godfrey impresses me with the sheer totality of her information.  Nothing is left unexplored, if possible."
—John R. Ellis, Fourth Day Universe

“If I was to ask you what two words are most relevant to the phenomenon of werewolves and lycanthropes you might well say “Full” and “Moon.” Or, “Silver” and “Bullet.” Well, you’re definitely on the right track, but I say those two words are “Linda” and “Godfrey”! Yep, not only is Linda the most well-known chronicler of all-things wolfman-themed, but she’s certainly the most prolific one, too. This new title from Linda is one that I definitely recommend to anyone and everyone who has voraciously devoured Linda’s previous studies of the werewolf phenomenon. And if you’re a newcomer to the subject, and want to learn what it’s really all about, it’s just about the most important book you can read on the phenomenon to date. And I don’t write words like that lightly.”
—Nick Redfern, Mysterious Universe

"By the time you finish Real Wolfmen: True Encounters in Modern America, you just might believe."
—Jason Carter, The Writers Journey

"It is hard to believe that such a creature could exist. However, the witness accounts in Real Wolfmen are often very compelling. Pick up a copy and see for yourself."
Alejandro Rojas, Huffington Post


 

Présentation de l'éditeur

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.
“She has the ability to send chills up and down your spine.”

—Brad Steiger, author of Real Ghosts, Restless Spirits, and Haunted Places

“If you thought the likes of The Wolfman, The Twilight Saga: Eclipse, and Underworld had no basis in fact, it's time to think again!” —Nick Redfern, author of There's Something in the Woods

Real Wolfmen is a riveting work of amazing scope and depth. You’ll be hooked from the first page.”--Rosemary Ellen Guiley, author of The Encyclopedia of Vampires and Werewolves


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.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Outstanding presentation! 7 septembre 2012
Par otto0713 - Publié sur Amazon.com

Welcoming you to the world of crypto (unknown)-zoology (animal); Linda Godfrey's compilation of nefarious dog-man encounters will open your mind to the truly bizarre and unnatural. Her collection of incidents and reports; many of which she investigated herself, are both compelling and profound. Nonetheless, she presents case after case of these unbelievable and well-written accounts that really left me struggling for air. Time and time again these witnesses have come forth with their stories of seeing something unexplainable and un-nerving. Imagine, if you will, a six to seven foot tall, upright walking werewolf-like creature, complete with pointed ears, muzzle, and mangled fur that seems to appear out of nowhere and stalk its beholder with both a physical rush and psychological imprint that implies "IT" is in control of the encounter. As unreal as that may seem, it happens more times than you can imagine and is a world-wide phenomena that has caught the attention of many of us who find these mysterious creatures existing in that finely tuned Fortean zone of uncomfortableness. To that end we are drawn, subtly and without knowing why.
Further into these bizarre accounts, the author begins her assault on our common rationality and enters the realm on the edge of interdimensional realities and ideas that truly plague the light-hearted. Even I was lying awake in deep thought as to the meanings of these meetings and lost many hours of sleep. I suppose the reason being my own writings and conjecturing about such things as Bigfoot, UFOs, and the paranormal in general. But then again if you take this lightly, you will miss the ride of your life.
A common misconception of most who delve into the paranormal is that they can remain objective; no matter the scope and intent of an authors work and will walk away unscathed. Nothing can be farther away from the truth. I believe Godfrey has endeavored and succeeded in presenting to a skeptical and pragmatical society, an idea that clearly exhibits a deep and almost philosophical aura of understanding and warmth towards an otherwise taboo array of cryptid, lycanthropic meddling. I especially like her quotes from sources such as the late John A Keel (Operation Trojan Horse) and Nick Redfern; also an expert in this strange business. The authors' knowledge and years of investigational reporting put her among the top of the field of were-beasts and other everyday mundane monsters that crop up along the waterways, crossroads and cemeteries of Wisconsin and her jovial brevity makes it a fun read amid the seriousness of its contents.
Her first book "The Beast of Bray Road" is what started it all, and I look forward to reading it. But this thing shines! I really thought it was well written and informative in a style that demands your attention. Anyone with even a slight interest in the subject matter won't be disappointed.
For all of the above, I give this most excellent source of data, information, and interpretation a full five stars. I highly recommend this work.
2.0 étoiles sur 5 A disappointment. 2 janvier 2017
Par Pedro Graham - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
This book is a disappointment, as Linda Godfrey puts this next to (and into) the supernatural. If you're coming from the school of thought that wolf men or dog men are real creatures, a type of Sasquatch or other undiscovered cryptid; then this book would be a disappointment to you. If however, you are reading it for fun, and desire simple stories, supernatural elements, then by all means by it and enjoy! But overall I found this book a disappointment. The writing is elementary at best, and the author and leaves many more questions then she ever answers.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Best Book by Linda 7 janvier 2014
Par John Doerr - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
At 334 pages, this is packed with short interesting accounts of the sightings of what are called Wolfmen.
The author makes reference to what God says about the Gadarenes and how one of theses creatures
was said to utter a word sounding like "Gadara." It is interesting that 34 uses of the word "howl" are used
in the AV1611 to reference Babylon (the church of Satan and home of spiritual wickedness) and that wolves would
enter in. It is this readers opinion that most of the accounts of sightings in the book are genuine. The most interesting account to me is the St. Coletta story involving Rosemary Kennedy. Linda leaves the reader with some of her theories on what these creatures could be. Babylon wants to expose and make hypotheses. God says we must only reprove.
Ephesians 6:12 "For wee wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darknes of this world, against spirituall wickednes in high places."

The book is very well organized. The author presents a trove of cases-incidents involving werewolf-like creatures. It was hard to put the book down. Well researched, well written and even scary enough to check that all windows and doors are locked at night. Good book, no complains.
4.0 étoiles sur 5 Seriously Chilling accounts of the "Upright Canid" creature phenomena! 1 août 2014
Par Sydney Squidney - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
It moves like a shadow through the dark woods, and as the moon emerges from between the clouds, it reveals the creature in the center of the clearing. Instantly, the beast rises onto its canine-like hind legs, seeming almost human, walking forward, revealing a long, muscular torso; its hair dark, primitive and shaggy, jutting over its whole body. With eerie long arms held out straight ahead, forepaws ready, the creature slowly lifts its head up. A large wolf-like head sitting heavy on broad, hairy shoulders. Its yellow eyes shining bright without fear. It stares longingly at you.

Real Wolfmen is a seriously chilling in-depth look at "upright canid" creature phenomena that has been reported by credible witnesses from across the American landscape.

These are the strange true stories to support the claims of werewolves, or "dogmen" as they are sometimes referred to by the often terrified firsthand observers.

Behind every rumour of werewolf-like beasts of intelligence and mischief roaming boldly across North America, are actual personal encounters of uncanny similarity recounted by sincere, ordinary people from all over the country and from all walks of life. Researcher and prominent guest speaker Linda Godfrey, an educated, greatly respected and trained reporter, gives these frightened people a voice.

Consider yourself open-minded? Try reading their compelling stories describing these supernatural intelligences that may or may not have a sinister agenda. Why are these dogmen showing themselves? What is their plan? How is it that so many witnesses report that these strange canid creatures that walk on two legs are able to communicate telepathically with them? From what realm do they originate that they have the power to appear and disappear at will?

The folktales of bipedal canine creatures have existed for centuries, but the formerly skeptical Ms. Godfrey goes out into the field to seek out the modern evidence, to interview the well-respected and intelligent witnesses, and of course, to find the monster dogmen themselves.

The author does not try to convince the reader to any particular way of thinking in this very readable narrative but instead examines all possible theories about the wolfman's existence and history, trying to determine if there really are "werewolves" that exist and she genuinely encourages the reader to decide on their own what to believe.

This is not so much a book about werewolves, as no one is really speaking of transformations from man to manwolf, but it is a collection of real sightings of werewolf-like creatures, strange bipedal and dogheaded creatures that boldly appear near the country's military areas, sacred burial and effigy mound sites, cemeteries and churches and also crossroads.

Anne Rice briefly and dismissively mentioned the Beast of Bray Road in her fantastical paranormal tale The Wolf Gift, but it is to Linda Godfrey we owe the thanks for coining the phrase because it was in her first book “The Beast of Bray Road” that the manwolf/dogman phenomenon really got started. Godfrey was the original reporter for “The Beast of Bray Road” story back in December of 1991 when she was assigned to cover the rash of sightings taking place in her area.

In this well-researched book, Godfrey has compiled numerous eyewitness accounts of these "wolfmen" and their furtive activities. The sightings have hesitantly been recounted by people of credibility and some who fear ridicule for even mentioning the high strangeness to anyone at all, but here they have entrusted Ms. Godfrey with their brushes with these paranormal creatures, understandably to restore some sense of stability back into their lives by finding peace and catharsis in the sharing of their disturbing encounters.

I greatly appreciated the sincerity and respect that Godfrey provided for these people and the way she presented their stories in an informative, journalistic style that was often accompanied by eyewitness sketches of the dogman beasts, but I also was thankful for her enjoyable humour that added levity to the unnerving nature of these highly creepy reports.

This is a really compelling book; I've actually purchased several paperback copies to pass out to fans of my cryptid blog and I would recommend Real Wolfmen: True Encounters in Modern America to anyone interested in joining the cryptid community and to those with even the slightest interest in the paranormal - you won’t be disappointed.

This book will give you a lot to think about. Maybe you don't believe in these wolfmen now, but as these bright-eyed leering beasts seem to be showing themselves more and more, you might one day find yourself looking for believers.
