Compiled by Dr Karl P.N. Shuker.

First Uploaded Online: 3 June 1999.

Continually Updated.

This new listing, compiled by Dr Karl P.N. Shuker, is a wholly (and continually) updated version of the original, very considerably shorter bibliography by Dr Karl P.N. Shuker and Steven Shipp published over a decade ago in issues 6, 7, and 8 of the quarterly British cryptozoological magazine Animals and Men.

For the most part, this list is self-explanatory, but the following comments assist in defining its precise form and scope.

Works included generally have a minimum length of 32 pages, and concentrate upon cryptozoology (undiscovered animals) and/or zoomythology (mythological animals). Space limitations preclude inclusion of the countless 'general mysteries' books in existence that contain chapters or sections dealing with cryptozoological subjects.

Equally, although this listing aims to be comprehensive, no attempt has been made to provide a complete listing of cryptozoological and zoomythological books, as this would be little short of impossible, especially in relation to foreign-language publications. All suggested additions or amendments are greatly welcomed.

Books clearly written specifically for children are not included.

First U.K. edition (generally hardback) and most recent U.K. edition are given for each book. Details of English-language editions published outside the U.K. are given only in certain instances when these predate their U.K. counterparts or have significantly different titles.

Last but not least: Books have been deemed eligible for inclusion in this bibliography by virtue of their subject; I have made no attempt to select or discriminate upon the basis of their scientific merit. I leave that perilous task, gentle reader, to you!
