Lair of the Beasts: Ape-Human Cross-Breeds by Nick Redfern, Columnist and Monster Hunter
(May 25, 2013)
The idea that humans and gorillas (or humans and chimpanzees) could cross-breed sounds not just bizarre, but like something straight out of nightmarish science-fiction. Indeed, such a thing should not be possible in the slightest.

Book Review: The Art of Epic by Kimberly McCall, Contributing Writer
(May 25, 2013)
I more or less brushed off the trailer to “Epic” with a shrug. To me, it seemed just another digitally animated crowd pleaser with an all-over voice cast. However, the film’s production art book, The Art of Epic from the artists at Blue Skies Studios

Lair of the Beasts: Creatures of the Past by Nick Redfern, Columnist and Critic
(May 04, 2013)

Book Review: Without a Summer by Chuck Francisco, Columnist and Critic
