    Michael Nostradamus is regarded as the most accurate prophet of all time. His prophesies were collected and published in a book called The Centuries, which was the 14th Century's best-seller after the Bible. Nostradamus predicted the German inflation of the 1930s, the war against Hitler, and aspects of General Franco's life. The most terrifying of his declarations, revealed here, has thankfully not materialized.

    The earth teems with strange creatures. Most we know about. But there are others that seem to flit like ghosts in the background of our experience. Large footprints in the Himalayan snows start speculation about the yeti or abominable snowman. A harsh cry in the African jungle sparks fears of the dreaded chemosit. A dark shape rears up from the waters of a Scottish loch. Could it be Nessie, the Loch Ness monster? What about the sea serpents so feared by ancient mariners?
