Incredible? Impossible? Too awful to imagine? But someone, somewhere at some time has sworn that each of these strange stories is true... A newspaper reports of a monster man, whose fiery breath scorched the faces of his victims; an American swears to his dying day he was kidnapped by a family of Bigfoot or ape men; and centuries old records tell of a beached sea monster so huge, a man could have drowned inside it.
Hear accounts of the Yeti, the vampire, Black Dog and Morgawr, consider the facts and decide for yourself whether these monster stories really are true. And even if you choose not to believe, beware! These tales may linger in your thoughts and darken your dreams...
I don't believe in monsters, but I love monster stories. The stories in this book are interesting and well-told, and Denica Fairman does an excellent job reading them (including voices for the characters in each story with a number of accents). The author does not try to convince the reader that the stories must be true, but uses evidence to support the case of each story. He also provides evidence that the stories may not be true, then leaves the reader to judge for him/herself.
