This is not a scholarly work. It is aimed at a general audience. It is a good quick read and mentions a lot of contemporary authors of horror and monster fiction for those interested to look up. But it is also a good starting point for researchers.
My only complaint is that the authors did not mention the Harry Potter series. J.K. Rowling makes extensive use of the monsters and other creatures found in folklore. The authors did include a brief appreciation of Tolkien. The part on dogs discusses Sherlock Holmes and the Baskerville Hound, noting that the hound was not actually otherworldly. Stephen King and Anne Rice are also featured. A little mention of Harry Potter would have been appreciated, although those books are not, strictly speaking, horror books.
