I believe it’s time for a little monster fun. No, it’s not Immortal Monday and I don’t mean the kids as they attack the presents under the Christmas tree. Although, that would be fun as well.
I know. It’s not a picture of kids ripping open shiny boxes. But this over zealous “Buddy” reminds me all too much of my youngest. I couldn’t resist.
So, if I’m not talking about little munchkins, than what exactly am I hinting to? Could it be this guy?
Nah. I don’t think so. But I do admit to being slightly consumed with the thoughts of big hairy creatures at present. With Christmas right around the corner and the classic animated Rankin/Bass movies gracing the screen, this guy might be at the forefront of my mind…
But alas, he isn’t the right monster either. The poor abominable snowman. He wouldn’t have been so bad if it weren’t for that terrible toothache.
Give up? I’m thinking of everything from Harry and the Hendersons to Sasquatch Mountain. That’s right, it’s the Yeti’s cousin – Bigfoot, a creature steeped in myth and lore. Many claimed to have caught a glimpse of such a creature, or something out in the woods they can only attribute to one such beast. Others laugh it off as crazy delusions. Where do you stand on the matter? Serena Dracis presented an interesting theory we don’t hear too often. It could explain why the big guy isn’t spotted more often.
Author Pamela Foster often talks about her family’s history involving Bigfoot, her grandfather’s sighting and the subsequent search for him and proof of his existence. With all this history taking place in Humboldt county and the Arcadia area I was immediately drawn in as that was my sister’s stomping grounds before her death. I’ve walked through those woods and along those city streets. The things Pamela describes are familiar to me and I can easily see Bigfoot making a home among those towering redwoods.
Bigfoot, there’s so much mystery surrounding this guy. Could he be a future topic on Immortal Monday? Possibly. But today he’s something more.
It’s a collection of short stories by various authors, all dealing with Bigfoot sightings. There’s something for whatever your particular encounter taste may be. This fun anthology is a companion to Pamela Foster’s new release: Bigfoot Blues. Both books are published by High Hill Press. Many thanks to them for this opportunity.
Wow. Two publications within a week. I bet that doesn’t happen again. I now have an Amazon author’s page. You can find me here. I have at least one more iron in the fire, if not more. 😉 If you have the uncontrollable desire to “like” my author’s page, I won’t stop you. 😀
Finally, I need to thank you, my readers. You challenge me every day to be a better writer and without you I wouldn’t be where I am today. There is always room for improvement and growth, but without you and our interaction, the process would be a hell of a lot slower.
