Straightforward question regarding not only cryptozoologists, but also authors interested in the field. I personally would pick Bernard Heuvelman (No need to explain why) and Linda Godfrey (Her book about the Beast of Bray Road is a great piece of journalism. I love how she doesn't rule out any possibility and just focuses on the impact of all the happenings in a small town like Elkhorn).
What about you? Who are your picks?
