Overview

A geological surveyor by trade, English author CHARLES GOULD (1834-1893) was rather more interested in the strange ornithological specimens he collected on his journeys around the world. Mythical Monsters, the result of this deep and abiding fascination, is one of the classics of the field of cryptozoology, or the study of unknown or hidden creatures.

Mythical Monsters "reflects the curiosity for the natural world that [Gould] carried with him in his travels for most of his life," says cryptozoologist Loren Coleman in his new introduction. "The book, naturally, dwells on geological mysteries early in its pages, merging in his thoughts on Atlantis, the Great Flood, and evidence for such events he saw written in the land. But the bulk of the book is about 'monsters' that intrigued Gould, including the unicorn, the phoenix, and the dragon." Monsters also features an essential section on the mysterious beasts of the ocean depths.

This new edition, a replica of the original 1886 first edition complete with the original illustrations, is part of Cosimo's Loren Coleman Presents series.

LOREN COLEMAN is author of numerous books of cryptozoology, including Bigfoot!: The True Story of Apes in America and Mothman and Other Curious Encounters.

    Mythril's Revenge -Final Destination-

    -Mythril's Revenge- <br>
    Final Destination• Prologue <p>

    The wind whistled with it's bitterness hate, the thunder rumbling lowly in the dulled sky. Lightning crackled acrlss the black clouds, it's startling stark electricity pulsing through the darkness. <br>
    The soft crys of a child could be heard, and the hootingly angry yowls of parents at war. There I watched, hiding myself in the darkest corner of the room, feeling hot tears streak against my face. <br>
    "Then maybe She should be sent away! She'd be better in a fr<_>eaking Asylum!" I flinched, harsh words undertoning my Fathers' deft remarkings. I could hear my Mothers' pained filled wails, and heard her angered yelps as she retorted my Father. <br>
    Simmon, only a month in age, cried loudly, his wails high-pitched and ear-shattering. I could feel the heat of anger pulsing from my Father, as he abruptly whirled on Simmon. <br>
    He was going to kill my Brother! I thought, holding back a cry of hatred. All I could see now were the uprising shadows of my Father, as he lifted a knife high. I closed my eyes, when a sickening thud made me jump in my terror. <br>
    Scarlet red blood stained along the hardwood flooring, and my Father had vanished into the drumming of the storm. All that was left was my Mothers' corpse, and maybe my Brothers'. A small cry alerted me, and I admit, I felt a strong sense of happiness, as I reached out, and pulled Simmon to me. <br>
    I stared blankly at my Mothers' limp body, my orbitals burning with killing anger, and I remember swearing revenge on my Father..I'm Mythril Adams, and this is my story, my story, and my revenge.
