If creatures of the Cthulhu mythos are fictional why are people seeing them? In this book I hope to provide you with some answers.

Cryptozoology is the search for and study of real animals whose existence or survival is disputed or unsubstantiated. Cthulhu is a fictional character created by H P Lovecraft so you wouldn’t think the two could be connected but they seem to be.

Perhaps the answer to this mystery can be found within zooform phenomena.

Zooform creatures are entities outwardly resembling animals, but appearing supernatural rather than corporeal.

Throughout the ages such creatures have been reported, but now more than ever they are being reported more often.

In the past, sightings of phantom dogs and mystery black cats seemed to be the limit of Zooform but now they are starting to appear in the guise of fictional creatures. There is even sighting of Cthulhu being reported in the British countryside.

Are these reports just fantasy or is there something to them. In this book I will be looking into this phenomenon and presenting my findings.

I have been researching Zooform for many years now and have been writing books on the subject of Cryptozoology for the last decade. I am also the person behind the very successful Weird Weekend North conference.

I am the author of not only four books on Cryptozoology, but also numerous magazine articles.

As well as appearing on various radio shows worldwide talking about Cryptozoology and Zooform I also wrote the weekly feature Glens Grooves for the BBC Radio Scotland show Morton through Midnight.

My first book published was the award winning Mystery Animals of the Western Isles (golden baboon 2009)

Risks and challenges

The majority of Cryptozoology, Cthulhu and Zooform is already written with illustrations in progress.

With both costs and timings worked out I can't foresee any issues unless Cthulhu returns and life as we know it ends
