John A. Keel is considered by many to have been a significant influence within ufology and Forteana. He died on July 3, 2009, in New York City, at the age of 79. At the height of his career, he was interviewed by luminaries such as David Letterman, Johnny Carson, and Merv Griffin.
The Mothman Prophecies, perhaps Keel's most famous book, was an account of his investigation into sightings in West Virginia of a huge, winged creature called the "Mothman".
Strange Mutants of the Twenty-First Century contains Keel's very first ruminations on Mothman, as well as a variety of strange reports on black "demon" dogs, phantom cats, Bigfoot and other North American giants, flying humanoids, flying saucers, flying snakes, and even stranger mutants that Keel believed reside with us on Earth.
This book was originally printed in very small quantities over 30 years ago, and became extremely rare and expensive. Finally, it has been available to the general public.
Strange Mutants is a classic listen that provides an entertaining glimpse into John Keel's bizarre world of the unknown.

Sasquatch lovers unite!
There was a wealth of information, and a lot of firsthand accounts of sightings. This is not something I have ever seen compiled so thoroughly before.
Since this is non-fiction, there weren't any characters, per se, but I enjoyed the voice of the narrator.
He has a "matter-of-fact" voice, like a cross between a newscaster and a host on the Animal Planet. It certainly made a book filled with facts and statistics a lot more interesting!
This was the first time I've ever heard a correlation between UFO landings and Bigfoot sightings... I'm going to go find my tinfoil hat, now!
The only reason that I did not rate a full five stars was that after a while, the repetition of facts and statistics got tedious. This would have been a much better listen if it had been condensed into a two to four hour listen. The voice actor did a great job, and perhaps some day, an abridged version of this book can be released.
Very strange creatures...
