TODAY I RECEIVED MY GOLDEN YETI AWARD – AND NOT A WRONG ENVELOPE IN SIGHT!

With my Golden Yeti award for Cryptozoologist of the Year 2016 (© Dr Karl Shuker)

I'm very happy to announce that my Golden Yeti – verily the Oscar and BAFTA of cryptozoology – awarded to me as Cryptozoologist of the Year 2016 by Loren Coleman and the International Cryptozoology Museum in December 2016, has arrived today safe and sound, presented to me by a very nice lady from ParcelForce, and with neither a wrong envelope nor even a Stephen Fry anywhere in sight! Joy indeed!


And here it, photographed just before it took up residence in pride of place on my mantelpiece alongside a silver unicorn and a nautilus shell, and next to my mother's armchair, so that if somehow, as I so fervently hope and as very many friends and colleagues have assured me during the past four years, she is still close by, watching over me, she will see it and know that her lad whom she loved so much is still doing his best to continue to make her proud, in grateful thanks for all the love, encouragement, and guidance that she always gave me throughout our 53 wonderful shared years.


My sincere thanks again to Loren and to the ICM for honouring me and recognising my cryptozoological contributions with this fine award, and above all to Mom, without whom none of this would ever have been possible.

  3. Congratulations!!!! Very well deserved for a cryptozoologist who always provides balanced, rational, and importantly, well academically qualified views!

    I am was also pleased to look at all the pics - the "yeti" is far larger then I thought it would be, which was quite a suprise....but appropriate I guess in the world of cryptozoology!

    1. No problem, I honesty cannot think of anyone who should have their work more recognized than yourself.
