Scott Corrales of the Institute of Hispanic UFOlogy steps away from the subject of UFOs - but only slightly - as he writes a lengthy report on the evidence of gigantic, manlike beings reported in the myths of the native cultures found in the New World. From Canada and Alaska to Central America, there are reports of a giant race responsible for some of the megalithic structures found in Mexico and even unexplained cairns found in the regions of the Eskimos that would have required the efforts of beings of prodigious strength to construct. And Corrales warns against believing tales of giants in the New World are typical myths of the past, saying "it is perhaps worth noting here that the remains of physical giants continue being found in contemporary times." Elsewhere on the cryptid scene, Russian news stories are pointing to something preying on domestic animals in a strange manner, as seen in 'Vampire' Stalks Siberian Livestock, while a prolific high strangeness author takes center stage for an interview in Exclusive Interview with Brad Steiger of The Werewolf Book: The Encyclopedia of Shape-Shifting Beings. Meanwhile, Craig Woolheater reprints a climatological review by Katatrepsis entitled In Search of Sasquatch, and Loren Coleman notes the passing of a scientist who was a friend of a key figure in cryptozoology and may have had a hand in researching the "rock apes" of Vietnam, as seen in Georges Condonminas Dies.
