Spotlighting news articles, historical accounts, and firstperson interviews, this chronicle of human interactions with monsters will convince even the most hardened skeptic of the existence of the bogeyman, bigfoot, werewolves, and swamp creatures. Offering an array of wild reports—from the police officer who begrudgingly responded to a call about a longhaired woman flying over a suburban neighborhood only to find himself calling for backup when she attacked his patrol car to the motorist whose headlights illuminated a sevenfoot tall, wolflike creature that stood on its hind legs—this historical record highlights scary and unbelievable narratives. From slightly demented humans to spinetingling paranormal encounters, each outlandish occurrence is detailed with thorough research and recounted with a storyteller's crafted voice.

The Vikings brought the legends of the giant black dog to Anglia. As if the Vikings suddenly appearing on the beach one morning with their savage war cries that firmly announced their intent to raid one’s village were not terrible enough, the sea wolves left warnings of the Black REAL MONSTERS, GRUESOME CRITTERS,

And it was the creator of Sherlock Holmes, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle himself, who came to the defense of Elsie Wright and Frances Griffiths in the famous and controversial Case of the Cottingly Fairies in 1917.

During the course of our investigation in the area, we drove over into Connecticut to hunt down giant Jack O’ Lanterns known to be harassing residents near an outdoor farmers market. This was pretty much the same trek truck drivers had been on that fright-filled night in 1982 when they rubbed 18-wheelers with a “thing” the size of a 747 that tailed them at less than a thousand feet in the air. Around the same time the mysterious
