Memoirs of a Monster Hunter chronicles my creature-seeking expeditions in the period 2001 to 2005, and includes chapters on (A) my various expeditions to Puerto Rico in search of the Chupacabras; (B) my quest to solve the riddle of the Texas Goat-Man; (C) investigations of werewolves, gargoyles and lake-monsters; and (D) the ghosts of Roswell!

Here's the link to the publisher's (New Page Books) page on the book.

And also from the publisher is the following on Memoirs of a Monster Hunter:

“This is one of the best books I’ve read in years. Redfern sweeps you away on
his personal adventure. Around the world, from romance, to ghastly beasts, to
the cosmos, Redfern has candidly shared the wonders of his young life."
—Joshua P. Warren, author of Pet Ghosts and How to Hunt Ghosts.

For centuries, people across the world have had a fascination with monsters and
strange creatures. They marvel at the tales and legends of the Bigfoot of the
Pacific Northwest; of the Abominable Snowman of the Himalayas; of the
infamous and diabolical Moth-Man of West Virginia; of fire-breathing dragons;
and of those dark denizens of the deep: lake monsters and sea serpents. But do
such creatures really exist? Can it be true that our planet is home to fantastic
beasts that lurk deep within its forests and waters? Memoirs of a Monster Hunter
proves the answer is a resounding yes!

In this follow-up to his wildly successful Three Men Chasing Monsters,
paranormal investigator and author Nick Redfern chronicles his surreal road-trip
through the United States and beyond in search of all-things monstrous. His
strange adventures lasted five years and saw him doggedly pursuing a
menagerie of creatures, including gargoyles, giant birds, and what some believe
are living dinosaurs.

Follow Redfern as he:

• Explores the El Yunque rainforest of Puerto Rico in search of the terrifying
Chupacabras: a razor-clawed, glowing-eyed beast that is part giant bat and
part vampire.
• Seeks out the Goat Man: a menacing creature that evokes imagery of both
demons and the fabled cloven-hoofed Centaurs of ancient mythology, and is
said to inhabit the forests of East Texas.
• Chases after what many people believe are real-life, flesh-and-blood
werewolves that surface from hidden lairs and prowl the countryside when the
Moon is full.

Part X-Files, part Crocodile Hunter with a mix of Jurassic Park and Fear and
Loathing in Las Vegas, Memoirs of a Monster Hunter takes you on a
roller-coaster ride into the unknown. Read personal accounts of the monsters
that inhabit your wildest imagination and your worst nightmares. The creatures
you were told couldn’t possibly exist, really do.
