As an author:
Krulos’s first book is a non-fiction titled Heroes in the Night: Inside the Real Life Superhero Movement. It was published in October 2013 by Chicago Review Press. Heroes in the Night is a thorough investigation of a movement or subculture of people who call themselves “Real Life Super Heroes” and adopt their own costumed personas and hit the street to fight injustice.
His second book, Monster Hunters: On the Trail With Ghost Hunters, Bigfooters, Ufologists, and Other Paranormal Investigators, was published June 2015, also from Chicago Review Press. It was a finalist in the Midwest Book Awards and made several reading lists ranging from the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel to Cult of Weird.
