Bigfoot Tracks: A Creep Squad Collection

Bigfoot Tracks: A Creep Squad Collection by Steve Vernon is available at Amazon.

The Blurb
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.
My Review
Bigfoot Tracks: A Creep Squad Collection by Steve Vernon
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

A tongue-in-cheek take on the paranormal genre (and not a romantic liaison to be seen but, to be perfectly honest, I'd probably enjoy Vernon's take on a romantic supernatural liaison. It would go one of two ways and either be effin' hilarious or deeply disturbing).

This collection of short stories introduces characters who make up the Creep Squad, the nickname for the Spiritual Operations Branch -the SOBs- of a "semi-official paramystical working division of the Canadian Royal Mounted Police" (description taken straight from the first story in the book).

Reading this collection isn't necessary to understand/follow the sequel in The Creep Squad series, but Bigfoot Tracks does provide a closer in-depth look at the individual characters and their magical world.

There's a couple editorial typos but nothing that distracted from the overall story and I'm currently working my way through the sequel, Big Hairy Deal (which I pre-ordered).
