The situation is grave. Vampires are vamping. Werewolves are shape shifting. And zombies are lurching into the garden. Is this modern-day ferment of paranormal activity, ah, normal? Learn all about it in this nifty new pocket guide to man's best fiends: VAMPIRES, WEREWOLVES, ZOMBIES: Compendium Monstrum. Collected from the papers of 19th-century monstrologists Herr Doktor Max Sturm & Baron Ludwig Von Drang, this intriguing book includes "notes and sketches," arranged with some updating, plus a Transylvania travel section, fold-out maps, and "Sightings Record Pages," so you can record your own encounters. Don't be caught dead without it!
Fascinating facts revealed in the book include documented "sparkling vampires" in 19th-century folklore (page 26), why wolfsbane is sometimes known as "Dumbledore s Delight" (page 92), and much more.

Greetings zombie horde. Not that I am in any rush for some zombie hunter to come knocking on MY door, but there are just some zombies out there with no manners at all that may need some kind of instruction. This book is great for those moments in a dark Carpathian forest when you forgot your garlic and are wondering what to do next.
