    Due to limited time and taking advantage of discounts, I've accumulated quite a few audiobooks. Anyway, the one I'm listening to now is The Complete Guide to Mysterious Beings by none other than John A. Keel. It's a lot of fun. I would classify it as Forteana, or maybe folklore, rather than cryptozoology. Many of the entities discussed are somewhat fabulous, while others could be considered intelligent. He even covers extraterrestrials and angels. Keel didn't commit himself to the reality of the beings he discussed, but only rejected a few of them outright.

    Here's the Table of Contents of the print edition:

    CONTENTS

    1. A World Filled with Ambling Nightmares

    2. ”The Uglies and the Nasties”

    3. Demon Dogs and Phantom Cats

    4. Flying Felines

    5. The Incomprehensibles

    6. Giants in the Earth or ”Marvelous Big Men and Great Enmity”

    8. Meanwhile in Russia

    9. Big Feet and Little Brains

    11. Those Silly ”Flying Saucer” People

    12. The Big Joke from Outer Space

    13. Cattle Rustlers from the Skies

    14. The Grinning Man

    15. Cherubs, Angels, and Greys

    16. The Bedroom Invaders

    17. Winged Weirdos

    18. The Man-Birds

    19. West Virginia's ”Mothman”

    Kerry Cassidy has a new book "Rebel Gene: Secret Space & the Future of Humanity". She talks about the history of Project Camelot and her whistleblowers. I would give it 8.3/10.

    Publicizing this is certainly good, but they have been free all along.

    I would give this book 'Walking Among Us: The Alien Plan to Control Humanity' an 8.5/10. It's basically a follow-up to his other book 'The Threat'. In one account a hybrid/hubrid was talking to a stranger and was told he needs to lighten up. He thought that meant he needed to buy lighter color clothes.
