Fortean Times

Uncomfortably, Terrifyingly and too Real!

Scientists and zoologists may assert they are not based in fact. Historians try to assure us they are nothing more than folklore and urban legend. Yet, the eyewitnesses, newspaper articles, and accounts from investigators and pursuers show that monsters do exist. They dwell in deep lakes, dense forests, inhospitable jungles, desolate caves, and on vast, icy mountain ranges.

Exploring the history, mythology, pop culture, and the supernatural, The Monster Book: Creatures, Beasts, and Fiends of Nature is a comprehensive resource of the monster menagerie from around the world. Examining the lore and legends, as well as the first-person accounts of bizarre freaks of nature and spine-tingling paranormal entities, it details each beast with thorough research, while recounting the facts in an engaging narrative.

This ominous look at monsters investigates nearly 200 beings, beasts, freaks, and fiends, ranging from the renowned and celebrated to the little-known and inglorious, including werewolves, Bigfoot, the Loch Ness monster, the Chupacabra, Mothman, the Mongolian Death Worm, giant flying monsters; winged humanoids; violent and hairy man-beasts; long-necked leviathans of lakes, rivers, and oceans; ferocious and deadly shape-shifters; and a multitude of other menacing mutants and dangerous demons
