Monsters and Demons is a gruesome history of our worst

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
