JFK Files Released and Trauma Room One

This week, President Trump approved the release of 2,800 documents related to the assassination of President John F. Kennedy. Historians, conspiracy theorists, and citizens who are just downright curious, now have access to papers previously sealed to the public. For those who can't get enough of JFK and want to get the real background, Cosimo is thrilled to highlight Trauma Room One by Charles A. Crenshaw with a foreword by Oliver Stone. In this gripping account, Dr. Charles Crenshaw, one of the Dallas surgeons who worked on JFK in Trauma Room One just after he was brought into the hospital, shares what really happened within those walls. 
In November of 1963, the doctors who tried to save President John F. Kennedy at Parkland Hospital agreed---either out of respect or fear---not to publish what they have seen, heard, or felt. But in 1990, Charles Crenshaw stepped forward and decided that the American people ought to know the truth.

In 1992, when the first edition of this book was published under JFK: Conspiracy of Silence, Crenshaw revealed what he never had the opportunity to tell the Warren Commission. Crenshaw states, "The wounds to Kennedy's head and throat that I examined were caused by bullets that struck him from the front, not the back, as the public has been led to believe."

Shortly after publication, the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA) called Crenshaw's book a fabrication. But in court, the claim did not hold up, and Crenshaw subsequently prevailed in a defamation suit against JAMA. In the process, a number of new medical disclosures have emerged on the startling medical cover-up of the JFK assassination. 

If you read the just released documents, read especially the last paragraph of this link, which indicates what has been kept secret till now but that was already described in Crenshaw's book: President Kennedy was not killed by one bullet, as stated by the Warren Commission,  but by two bullets shot from two different positions.

This coming November when we remember President Kennedy's death, now already fifty-one years ago, Trauma Room One will be seen as a classic book that tells current readers the true story of how President Kennedy was killed.

Cosimo offers this title as an eBookhardcover and paperback at leading online bookstores including Barnes & Noble and Amazon.

October Classic of the Month: Abominable Snowmen with Loren Coleman

In case you can't get enough of snowmen this month (with the British crime thriller The Snowman coming to theaters, this art exhibit coming to San Francisco, and the best marshmallows to ever grace cereal), we at Cosimo are going to read Abominable Snowmen - Legend Come to Life this October!
Scottish zoologist Ivan Terrance Sanderson coined the word cryptozoology and first used it in print in this hard-to-find 1961 work, the story of "hairy hominids" across the planet from the very beginnings of human civilization until the mid 20th century.

With its scientific, anthropological approach, this is one of the first books to treat the phenomenon of "Bigfoot" seriously, and introduced a groundbreaking classification system for the spectrum of subhumanoids. 

"I am happy that a whole new generation of cryptozoologists-in-training will be able to read Ivan T. Sanderson's classic book," says cryptozoologist Loren Coleman in his new introduction. "This book opened the minds of many to the vastness of the hominoid reports. and spotlighted for people that Bigfoot/Sasquatch research was the next area for exploration in North America."
Cosimo is proud to offer Abominable Snowmen - Legend Come to Life by Ivan Terrance Sanderson with an intro by Loren Coleman in both hardcover and paperback.

For those interested in learning more about this elusive creature. Check out all of our Cosimo titles for even more information on the fascinating topic of cryptozoology.

Today, Loren Coleman, as one of the world’s leading cryptozoologists, is an honorary member of the British Columbia Scientific Cryptozoology Club, a life member of the International Society of Cryptozoology, and an inaugural inductee of the Roger Patterson Memorial Bigfoot Museum in Portland, Oregon. He travels extensively for fieldwork and lectures and writes a daily blog at the Internet’s most popular cryptozoology news site, Cryptomundo. Coleman is the director of the International Cryptozoology Museum in Portland, Maine.

Announcement Left at East Gate

Cosimo is announcing that it is suspending the distribution of the book, Left at East Gate, by Larry Warren and Peter Robbins.

Left at East Gate had originally been published by Marlowe & Company in 1997 and had received widespread praise from UFO experts and others. This book describes what some have called the most significant military UFO incident in history, that took place at RAF Bentwaters, a NATO base in the United Kingdom in 1980.  Recently, however, it has been brought to our attention that some of the experiences described in this book may be inaccurate or embellished.

Cosimo is committed to publishing both new and out-of-print books that offer enduring value.  We, at Cosimo, will continue to do so in order to inform and inspire our readers. As part of our mission, we specialize in making rare and unique out-of-print books available again, as we did with Left at East Gate.  As an independent publisher, we look for quality books in a wide range of genres from public affairs and personal development to history, philosophy and niche subjects such as ufology, and then make a determination whether these books fit well within our catalog. At this moment, we cannot be certain that Left at East Gate still meets this standard. Consequently, we have decided to suspend the distribution of this book, until the situation surrounding it has been clarified to our satisfaction.
