BOOK DETAILS

John Michael gives an overview of the book:

Traditional lore from around the world describes monstrous beings -  ghosts, vampires, werewolves, and many others - that exist in a twilight realm on the edges of ordinary reality. Dismissed as superstitions by contemporary science, and used as fodder for popular culture and the entertainment industry, yet still encountered by people in modern industrial societies, these denizens of the world of the weird remain a focus of fascination and fear today. Monsters explores the facts, the fancies, and the folk traditions surrounding monstrous beings of many kinds.  Come take a walk where the wild things are!
