Spurred by the realization that the 9/11 attacks were accurately predicted – in 1967 – by a childhood friend who was seeing Mothman, Seattle artist Andy Colvin began filming a reality series, “The Mothman’s Photographer,” documenting his experiences growing up in Mound, West Virginia.
Inside the Prophecies of Mothman chronicles the thoughts and feelings of several Mothman experiencers in the years immediately following the attacks (2002-2007). These revealing letters, penned during a wave of odd synchronicities, sightings, and encounters, indicate that Mothman may be a guardian angel of mind-bending proportions.
Interwoven with these personal diaries are replies and other posts from Colvin, which reach back into the mysterious history of the Ohio Valley, providing not only a fuller context for the phenomenon, but also illustrations of how the paranormal and the media work together to help form public opinion and belief.
In their thought-provoking attempts to figure out just what Mothman might be up to, Colvin and company look at every possible myth, legend, and conspiracy theory they can find, leading the reader on a wild, entertaining, and often poignant ride into high-strangeness.

I love books about the weird in the obscure in these first-hand witness accounts were right up my alley. I think anyone who is interested in the moth man, men in black, aliens and the like will love this book. I am and I did!

Well I picked this book cos I really enjoyed the film ‘ the mothman prophesies ‘ and was intrigued by the promise of a study into the truth behind it, where the myth originated from, what were the circumstances that brought it to light and if there was any evidence to there being any truth behind the story.
What I got was 7 hours of the worst ramblings and conspiracy theories I’ve ever heard. Mass shootings are the fault of government mind control experiments or a deliberate plant by the government to distract from bad political stories rather than poor gun control laws.
This book does not live up to its blurbs promise and the narrator reflected this with a monotone drawl throughout that often made it hard to follow who was saying which conspiracy theory.
i was given this as a free audiobook and have left this review voluntarily.
