Metroplex Monsters

In the metropolitan mosaic that joins Dallas and Fort Worth together into a brightly lit metroplex, some mysterious figures still manage to keep to the shadows and slip through the cracks. Even after the Lake Worth Monster inspired a rash of phone calls to the Fort Worth Police Department, the "Goatman of Greer Island" faded back into the haze of myth. Is Lake Granbury's Ol' One Eye an impossibly large catfish or a sidetracked sea serpent? Could pterosaurs really coexist with the region's congested skies? From the Lady of White Rock Lake to the Creature of Copper Canyon and the Chupacabras of Cedar Hill, Jason McLean methodically follows inexplicable events to their source and bizarre beasts to their lairs.

Jason McLean

Author and founder of the Society for the Investigation and Research of the Unknown (SIRU), Jason McLean was born and raised in DeSoto, Texas. He currently lives in Waxahachie with his wife and children, via Nacogdoches, Texas, where he and his wife graduated from Stephen F. Austin University. When not appearing on several weekly vodcasts or traveling North Texas for business, Jason can be found at his art desk in the back half of the closet he claimed--much to the chagrin of his long-suffering wife's wardrobe.
