I know I have not updated the blog for a while, but with a book release coming up (June 12) I have been slammed. I have not updated on EAR as well for sometime. Much is going on, and though this may sound like a tease it is too hot to talk about.
Let me just touch on some of the motivation behind it all. I can deduce a few things: there is no suspect. The nationwide press conference a year or so ago did not bring in any viable suspect. Going over the old list of suspects did not cause any of them to be refined.
Yet it’s not being left there. I know that LE is very proactive and not just processing as tips come in.
Now as to the motivation: “The real life Michael Myers.” Nothing has conceptualized EAR as well as this. For someone as lousy at publicity as I am, it is amazing that I’m the one who chose the simile. It succeeded. Every official investigator has probably been struck by the same reaction: this guy was unreal. More than one has read either Crompton’s book, my website, or the massive files on EAR/ONS, and then locked his doors and windows. I have received “official compliments” for my own work.
EAR/ONS was unnatural and unreal, but he was all too real. The hunt is on right now to scour Haddonfield and find him. Even if the dragnet fails, it will yield valuable clues. These clues will underscore what so many already accept: that EAR was that premeditative and careful. But it will also inspire a helpful direction. The dragnet will be widened and this will also open up some doors to pursue those who don’t seem like they are the usual suspects.
Let’s face it, we love to hate a villain. But there’s really only been a few worthy of world hatred– Jack the Ripper and Zodiac, to name a couple. Now EAR joins their rank as a villain we love to hate. Everybody who has tracked his bloody trail has smacked their lips in anticipation to nail this bizarre manifestation of night stalking.
Something like this doesn’t die off.

Since 1990 Gian J. Quasar has investigated a broad range of mysterious subjects, from strange disappearances to serial murders, earning in that time the unique distinction of being likened to “the real life Kolchak.” However, he is much more at home with being called The Quester or Q Man. “He’s bloody eccentric, an historian with no qualifications who sticks his nose into affairs and gets results.” He is the author of several books, one of which inspired a Resolution in Congress.
