Thomm discusses unusual monsters that lurk through contemporary mythology, including black eyed kids, goat man, and his favorite creature in all of fortean phenomena: Gef the Talking Mongoose. The "notes" file is recorded in his office, the "live" one is at No Such Convention. Both contain roughly the same information, though the notes are a bit crisper and repetitive, the live version involves the laughter of convention goers and most of his nervousness.

Thomm Quackenbush is an author and teacher in the Hudson Valley. Double Dragon publishes four novels in his Night's Dream series (We Shadows, Danse Macabre, and Artificial Gods, and Flies to Wanton Boys). He has sold jewelry in Victorian England, confused children as a mad scientist, filed away more books than anyone has ever read, and tried to inspire the learning disabled and gifted. He is capable of crossing one eye, raising one eyebrow, and once accidentally groped a ghost. When not writing, he can be found biking, hiking the Adirondacks, grazing on snacks at art openings, and keeping a straight face when listening to people tell him they are in touch with 164 species of interstellar beings.
