A Well-Documented Page-Turner

February 13, 2014

Writing one great book is difficult enough. Writing a second that’s as good as the first is a hurdle that few writers manage to cross successfully. But Lyle Blackburn has done just that. The reviewers loved his first book, The Beast of Boggy Creek, and they are just as enthusiastic about Lizard Man: The True Story of the Bishopville Monster. In Cryptomundo, David Weatherly wrote: “Just as he did with the Legend of Boggy Creek, Blackburn gets to the roots of the Lizard Man reports, interviewing witnesses, going to the locations and generally leaving no stone unturned. It is, in fact, Lyle’s trekking through the Lizard Man’s territory that gives the book its driving energy, creating a page turner that any mystery novelist would be jealous of.” The blogger at Monsters and Magic calls the book “a stand out,” and writes: “Lizard Man is a fascinating read that will leave the reader with not only a thorough knowledge of the topic but also a real taste of the mystery surrounding the case.” And Lon Strickler of Phantoms & Monsters called it ”…an expertly crafted allegory that is informative as well as entertaining.” We are certain that you will love Blackburn’s latest tour de force as well.
