Growing up in Texas, Lyle Blackburn became fascinated with the legends, lore, and sighting reports of alleged real-life monsters. Today, the infamous frontman of the devilishly eclectic rock band, Ghoultown, has authored his first book, The Beast of Boggy Creek: The True Story of the Fouke Monster, all about the large, legendary, hairy, man-like creature of Southern Arkansas known as the Fouke monster. Over the years, the creature has been seen by numerous witnesses, including respected citizens, experienced hunters, famous musicians, and even a police officer. The encounters were often so shocking, they served as inspiration for the classic horror film, The Legend of Boggy Creek, by Charles B. Pierce. And frightening encounters with the Fouke monster continue to be reported to this day. With a foreword by Loren Coleman, the book has already drawn advance praise from people such as Nick Redfern who believes the book is “Destined to become a cryptozoological classic!”
