Translated into over thirteen languages, John Keel's The Mothman Prophecy is an unsettling true story of the paranormal that has long been regarded as a classic in the literature of the unexplained.
West Virginia, 1966. For thirteen months the town of Point Pleasant is gripped by a real-life nightmare culminating in a tragedy that makes headlines around the world. Strange occurrences and sightings, including a bizarre winged apparition that becomes known as the Mothman, trouble this ordinary American community. Mysterious lights are seen moving across the sky. Domestic animals are found slaughtered and mutilated. And journalist John Keel, arriving to investigate the freakish events, soon finds himself an integral part of an eerie and unfathomable mystery.
The Mothman Prophecy is the basis of the 2002 film starring Richard Gere.

This book is an easy read, holds your attention and is eerily entertaining.
Keel brings a fresh perspective to this these fringe topics. I think his descriptions of this phenomenon as a mirror which plays off a persons built in beliefs is closer to the truth then the nuts and bolts hypothesis you see the most out there.
The premier book on the paranormal and supernatural world around us
I have read this book probably a dozen times and it’s probably my favorite read, nonfiction or otherwise. Keel’s account of what he experienced, plus the almost infinite amount of paranormal events he researched made him the authority on the supernatural world.
Many people don’t understand that Mothman isn’t some big hairy beast with big red eyes roaming the hills and hollows near Point Pleasant, West Virginia. It’s something much more unfathomable and interesting. The idea that UFOs tie into firsthand accounts of interdimensional beings and the infamous Men in Black (Keel coined the term) is revelatory. Never has one person been so equipped and determined to understand the bizarre truth behind the hysteria.Patty D.
