Official genre: religion: science & religion, but this nonfiction “Bible of Modern Pterosaurs” is mostly about ropen sightings
Some people call it “dragon” or “flying dinosaur.” If  you have seen one, then you’ll know it. You’ll know  it’s not a legend and very much non-extinct. You  may have thought it must have been a hallucination  or that you were crazy. But many other people have  also seen a featherless flying creature that was not  like any known bat. Most modern pterosaurs have  long tails. They’re called “ropens.” The fourth edition of the nonfiction book Searching  for Ropens and Finding God will be available in Nov  of 2014, a cross-genre: spiritually uplifting, true-life  adventure, cryptozoological. It does little to promote  any particular religion, emphasizing how we need to  be tolerant of those who have different religious  views. It promotes faith in the Old Testament of the  Bible and is best appreciated by Christian readers. Yet the focus is not so much on defending Christian  beliefs as it is on taking you into the lives of those  American explorers who searched for modern living  pterosaurs in Papua New Guinea and elsewhere,  and into the lives of the eyewitnesses who were  shocked or terrified from their encounters with the  flying creatures.
Have you ever seen a "Pterodactyl" or an apparent living pterosaur?
About the book
“The Bible of Modern Pterosaurs”—that’s what this  book has been called, for its 360 pages are packed  with eyewitness reports of flying creatures unlike  any bat or bird known to Western science. From the Introduction we read, “Before scientists  created words like ‘Rhamphorhynchoid’ for long  tailed pterosaurs, common folk used the word  ‘dragon’ for large destructive creatures, including  those with long tails and wings but no feathers. I  have come to feel no embarrassment from the older  word, when somebody uses it for those long-tailed  pterosaurs commonly thought by many scientists to  have been the ancestors of larger short-tailed  Pterodactyloids like the Pteranodon.” We also read, “Natives on the remote island of  Umboi use ‘ropen’ for a real creature, large and  nocturnal, that glows for a few seconds at a time  while flying between one mountain and another, or  between land and reef. In English, ‘ropen’ has come  to mean a large long-tailed featherless cryptid, real  or not, that is said to fly over islands in Papua New  Guinea. . . . my associates and I have searched for  them there.”
