Overview

Varla Ventura, fan favorite on Huffington Post’s Weird News, frequent guest on Coast to Coast, and bestselling author of The Book of the Bizarre and Beyond Bizarre, introduces a new Weiser Books Collection of forgotten crypto-classics. Magical Creatures is a hair-raising herd of affordable digital editions, curated with Varla’s affectionate and unerring eye for the fantastic.

Séances, haunted houses, an evil tailor, Dogs from Hell, demons, goblins, wraiths…all are creeping about within these pages, as they once freely lurked through the hills of Wales. 19th century author Wirt Sikes documented the stories and encounters with these beings from the Other Realm while serving serving as the U.S. Ambassador to Wales and the result is a delightful collection of the unseen from impish hauntings and invisible trickery to full-scale possession and child-stealing. Arm yourself with these stories that you might better be prepared when you encounter those things that go bump in the night!
