Bigfoot Tracks by Steve Vernon [5 stars]

From the Description:

Everything that you have read about Bigfoot is a lie.

Everything that you have HEARD about Bigfoot is the truth!

Enjoy three stories from the files of The Creep Squad - that pack of cryptids, legends, and nondescript rumors who fight crime and misjustice anywhere that you aren't looking.

What if ALL the stories were true?

What if Bigfoot really did exist? What if he depended upon people's belief in him for his very existence?

What if he needed a job and the only he was suited for was keeping the other legends in their place?

What if he joined the Creep Squad?

If you enjoy these stories be sure to hunt up Steve Vernon's full-length Creep Squad novel, BIG HAIRY DEAL. If you pre-order the novel before Oct. 1, 2014 it is available for only 99 cents - only on Kindle.

This book was the introduction to Steve Vernon's Creep Squad. Made up of ghosts, tall-tales and legends they work for the SOB's, the Spiritual Operations Branch, a semi-official para-mystical working division of the Canadian Royal Mounted Police. The people and creatures are only around if enough people believe in them. Their job is to take care of problems that are supernatural in nature. The first story in this collection opens with two of the best opening lines I have ever read. Filled with both loveable monsters and horrific bad guys these stories are like Lay's potato chips, you can't stop at just one. All of them are at times funny and touching. A great way to spend a rainy Sunday afternoon! Steve Vernon is quickly becoming one of my favorite writers and you should do yourself a favor and pick up one of his books. I liked this book so much that I've already pre-ordered part two. A solid 5 star read.
