Most tales of cryptids reach back decades or centuries, long enough ago that sometimes the original sighting is lost to time or lacks important details. In Delaware, we have the opportunity to get in on the ground floor of a new cryptid. It is called the Prime Hook Swamp Creature, and it might be the most darling cryptid since the jackalope. Also, I’m sort of forced to go in this direction because Delaware, as the second tiniest state in the union – barely a cleft of Maryland – is so small it records almost no cryptid sightings. Other than Bigfoot – he’s everywhere. But this book isn’t The United States of Bigfoot.
