Overview


Waking the dead, stalking the living, roaming the night... hungry for blood, Monsters and Demons explores the truth behind the legends and analyzes that most deep-rooted of human fears—"fear of the unknown"—a fear that can be traced back to the first syllable of recorded time. 

Monsters and Demons is a gruesome history of our worst nightmares, from the soul-scorching heat of Satan's eternal hell-fire to lurching, relentless, hungry-for-brains zombies crawling from the grave. The full-color illustrations in this hardcover edition make it the perfect addition to any library, and an excellent gift for those interested in paranomal subjects.

This book is a complete compendium of terrifying mythological beasts—many are very much alive, and some say, they can still be witnessed today. A beautiful hardcover edition,
