Finally! It’s here: Neanderthal: The Strange Saga of the Minnesota Iceman by Bernard Heuvelmans. It’s taken 42 years for the only full-length story of the Minnesota Iceman to appear in English. That’s rather curious since the Minnesota Iceman is the most popular topic in the field next to the Patterson Bigfoot film. And Heuvelmans’ book about the frozen corpse of an extremely hairy man-like creature being exhibited in the Midwest in the late 1960s/early 1970s is a riveting read. The zoologist’s detailed inquiry into the origin of the specimen triggered a bizarre adventure involving the FBI, the Smithsonian, the Mafia, the Vietnam War, drug smuggling, Hollywood, and a secretive millionaire, giving much of the account the flavor of a detective story. We have Paul LeBlond to thank for translating the book, Philippe Marlin at Editions de l’Oeil du Sphinx for permission to publish this translation, and Loren Coleman for writing an amazing afterword that fills in the story from 1974 to 2016.
