The hunt for the truth is on regarding the Great Lake Monster of Lake Storsjön (The Great Lake) and as always RETROFUTURE is where the action is. I had so much stuff for RETROFUTURE 6 that I have had to put some aside for later, but here is a preview of some of the material that is coming up this fall. Nobody else is doing this in this manner and this is also the main reason why I have given away so many magazines for free here in Jämtland (county) around this lake in the last few years. It has generated an interest that has been quite interesting. I meet people all the time now that want to talk about this subject, at work, on pubs, even on my way home from work one early morning when I popped into a gas station to pick up a package of books. The project has produced a wealth of new material and I have also re-printed archive material (reports) from the 1895-1910 period in great numbers. The phenomenon is old and still going strong.

I am proud of the work that has been done and I know that many people are astounded that I have had the guts to do it. I met a friend a few weeks ago who said that he had sent a copy of my magazine “Storsjöodjuret” (“The Great Lake Monster”, published last year) to a cousin in the south of Sweden who is also an author (I don´t remember the name). He said that this man had brought up the subject several times and that he had said that he had read the publication several times over. Best feedback I ever had! Also, a Professor in Zoology at the Stockholm University showed interest (and bought a copy). On top of this, a leading newspaper, Dagens Nyheter, gave a very positive review. Local media has been quiet.

And things are moving on too. I just had a conversation with Evert Festin, one of the leading figures in the field and he told me that this years gathering with Föreningen Storsjöodjuret (a local group that is very active) will take place in a village called Hara on August 26. What they do is, they have this annual meeting that is open to the general public (on different locations around the lake each year) – with many witnesses that are brave enough to speak about what they have experienced. Every single year, somebody in the crowd comes up and owes up. A couple of years ago, I witnessed an old lady tell her story six decades (I think it was) after it happened. The page seen here is a RETROFUTURE 6 preview from last years meeting that took place in Hallen on July 5 2012. Local media does not cover this scene, a remarkable fact that is hard to understand. Basically speaking, they are afraid to touch it, God forbid that they should ever risk their precious reputations.

I may write a book in English on the subject some day. This is a mystery that belongs with the famous cases and the information we sit on here just isn´t out there. I think it should be. I will touch on the subject every now and then on this blog.

This is real, this is ongoing and this is here to stay.
