Notes on cryptids
From time to time, no reading gives me more pleasure than supposedly factual accounts of UFOs, black dogs, vanishing hitchhikers, and similar apparitions, although all such accounts are ultimately unsatisfactory. (I recommend *Sasquatch: the Apes Among Us*, by John Green, should you ever come across a copy.)
—Gene Wolfe, Introduction to Storeys from the Old Hotel
I don't believe that Sasquatch is real but I second Gene Wolfe's suggestion to read John Green's book, it was very fun to read to my puppy.
