Book Review Monsters

By Deanna Joseph
Tales throughout time have spoken of monsters and frightening beings and things that go “bump” in the night, and for most people these tales are as close to the unknown as they are willing to get. But for those few who find their curiosity peaked when they hear of local hauntings or monster sightings, there is finally a handbook just for you!

“Monsters – An Investigator’s Guide to Magical Beings” by John Michael Greer is truly a handbook for the beginning monster hunter or curious seeker. The book, which I found to be an easy and entertaining read, is divided into four parts and is 282 pages long (that includes the index):

Part I: An Introduction to the Field Guide – On the Reality of the Impossible.
Part II: A Field Guide to Monsters; Vampires, Ghosts, Werewolves, Creatures of Faery, Mermaids, Dragons, Spirits, Angels, Demons.
Part III: A Guide to Monster Investigation – the complete investigator.
Part IV: Magical Self-Defense; natural magic and ritual magic.
Part IV is followed by a glossary and bibliography of monster lore.
