Format: Paperback
Monsters... there are so many kinds, from human to alien to supernatural. And you will find them all in The Big Book of Monsters. There are serial killers, ghosts, ghouls, vampires, werewolves... You name it! Although this book has a deceptively plain cover, it's got an amazing array of interior illustrations (by one of the story authors, T.M. Gray) that are wicked and whimsical at once.

Stoker-winning author John Passarella does the insightful introduction and then without further ado we are plunged into a whole other world - the underworld. Some of my favorite stories were Colors of Murder, by T.M. Gray (a story in which a murderer can paint portraits with dead-on accuracy); The Endless Memories of Forever Burning Sins, by Steve Vernon (a freaky, frank look at Frankenstein's monster); and The Glass Cage by Jason Brannon (demons throw a hell of a dinner party).

I think it's a great value: $10 for 10 stories, plus artwork.

Beware. Once you open the Book of Monsters, there's no going back. Between the pages are a gamut of artistic illustrations, intriguing stories, and an honorable tribute to the classic-style telling of everyone's favorite subjects - monsters. To start things out, John Passarella(Wither), works his literary magic in a very appropriate and fitting introduction. What follows are ten stories to entertain, disturb, and hold true to the monster stories we grew up with - not the formulaic Hollywood versions, but the stuff that nightmares are made of.

"Prodigium: Recipe for a Monster" written by the eccentric and talented Adrienne Jones, is a captivating story about witches and the sweet taste of vengeance. With a clever plot and luminous characters, this is a recipe for excellence.

"The Endless Memory of Forever Burning Suns" is a poignant recollection from a monster's point of view, written by esteemed Canadian author Steve Vernon. Through blurred memories of skin, hands, and dreams - this monster believes he was created to do great things, but was never given a chance.

Susanne S. Brydenbaugh offers readers a chilling tale with "Where the Blood Roses Bloom". Ashes that sit in a silver urn are part of a promise to be fulfilled by loving hands. With brilliant dialogue and an eerie ambience, this classy ghost story sends a few shivers up the spine.

"Colors of Murder" by T.M. Gray, touches on a more psychological note, about an artist who paints his victims, and the one that got away. Gray has a gift for presenting the reader a riveting character study of a serial killer.

Hard driving action and realistic drama make "Snake Face" by Mike E. Purfield, a winning combination. This fast-paced werewolf tale brings to mind an edgy Memento-like feel.
