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.
