Here be Monsters!
They lurk and crawl and fly in the shadows of our mind. We know them from ancient legends and tales whispered by the campfire. They hide under the dark bridge, in the deep woods or out on the great plains, in the drizzling rain forest or out on the foggy moor, beneath the surface, under your bed. They don’t sparkle or have any interest in us except to tear us apart. They are the monsters! Forgotten, unknown, misunderstood, overused, watered down. We adore them still. We want to give them a renaissance, to reestablish their dark reputation, to give them a comeback, let the world know of their real terror.
Pacific Monsters is the fourth volume in a coffee table book series from Fox Spirit Books with dark fiction and art about monsters from around the world.
‘Another great monster collection! On maps, the Pacific has plenty of room for the chilling promise of “Here there are monsters,” and this collection certainly proves the truth in that, inviting readers to step away from the tame and venture into the uncharted reaches of Pacific myth and tradition.’
