Whether we’re talking ancient vampire hunters or modern-day FBI profilers, it’s good to know someone’s got your back in the eternal struggle between Good and Evil. And this book, with over fifty illustrations, as well as commentary from luminaries like filmmaker John Carpenter, author Peter Straub, and the legendary Stan Lee, provides all the information and reassurance you need to sleep soundly at night. Just not too soundly.
Jonathon Maberry (Marvel Zombies Return) and thriller writer Janice Gable Bashman delivered a funny, educational book with this one. With over 40 illustrations and interesting facts throughout, this book is freakin’ awesome! I especially loved how even though it was all factual, the authors’ personalities still came out. I found myself many times laughing at the satire and sarcasm. This book discusses legendary heroes, gives you an index of demons and monsters in folklore, tells you how to protect yourself against evil, informs you on how to hunt that evil, and much, much more. It really does cover everything, leaving no stone unturned. So pick it up!
