    Just a second grunt I just need to yelp do something a bit different for this cry review Reader Dan Ah That s better.Writer Dan Isn t it We should split the psycheoften I m so sick of you reading Ketchum filth when we should be working.RD A good writer needs to read as much as possible, WD Anyway, what the hell s your problem I thought you wanted to BE Jack Ketchum WD RD Anyhoo Here s the review for the drumroll non fiction book, They Bite by kajillion time Just a second grunt I just need to yelp do something a bit different for this cry review Reader Dan Ah That s better.Writer Dan Isn t it We should split the psycheoften I m so sick of you reading Ketchum filth when we should be working.RD A good writer needs to read as much as possible, WD Anyway, what the hell s your problem I thought you wanted to BE Jack Ketchum WD RD Anyhoo Here s the review for the drumroll non fiction book, They Bite by kajillion time Bram Stoker Award winners Jonathan Maberry and David F Kramer Looks like they took time out from reinforcing their sagging mantelpiece to add another volume to their collection of nonfiction, horror orientated books.WD Indeed This one beinga general overview of supernatural predators, rather than a specific study, such as in Vampire Universe Vampires are given the biggest section, however, and the usual suspects of werewolves, zombies, demons and the rest of the cryptids get their moments in the limelight RD I used to love these kind of books when I was a kid They scared methan the fictional ones, as these things could be creeping around your house in the middle of the night, right WD I think you ve been reading a little bit too much before bedtime, buddy What did you think about the book RD Wiggles fingers WD And what s that supposed to mean RD It was good in places, not so good in others The book is divided into sections, vamps, werewolves, hellhounds, etc and Maberry and Kramer give us a long, decent, deep and thoroughly researched breakdown of each one in folklore, movies, literature, etc This reader cannot tell who wrote what, it s that seamless.WD Yes, the research was very, very thorough Shows the guys have such a love for this kind of material, and it shows.RD But then we hit the glossaries WD Ah, the glossaries What was your problem RD I started with good intentions, but for example, it s a hard slog to read through 50 something pages don t quote me on that of constant vampire definitions from A Z The ones I read were concise and enjoyable, but it just made up too big a segment of the book I ended up skipping most of them, and for me, that s not getting value for money.WD I see your point, and I too skipped the majority of each glossary because if you did, I did.RD Figures You always copy.WD We re the same person, ass clown Although I didn t read the glossaries from A Z, the ones I did read are on the ball and entertaining As a writer in the horror field, I m quite secure knowing that I have a volume of obscure creature entries on the shelf Voila Instant and factual inspiration RD What did you make of the comments by many respected figures in the business I know some of them are close friends, so be carefulWD Yeah, I m not going to be specific, and I didn t make note of any names of the guilty, but the comments formed a wide spectrum from insightful to damn awful Some were just regurgitated blurbs from novels, such as when we asked Mr Writer what he thought about werechickens, he told us that in his book Cluck at the Moon, yadda yadda yadda I respected those that DID NOT mention their books at all They all got their books listed after their names and some even had the covers there all well and good , but to then go on about the same bookit felt like we were getting commercial breaks This can t be said for the majority though, and it was excellent to see a few familiar faces such as Shaun Jeffrey, Louise Bohmer, Fran Friel, etc.Artwork RD Amazing The full colour centre section was the icing on the cake A nice touch And I had no idea Maberry was such an artist Is there anything he can t do WD I know he can kick yo ass Think about that when you deliver the star rating Did you read the Pine Deep trilogy RD Of course I m the reading psyche, remember WD So on the five star system, what are you going to give it I m going all the way with a 5 5, and that s without the threat of ninja Maberry It s a great resource to have on the shelf for any enthusiast, and it s a damn sightentertaining than any textbook In addition, Dog Soldiers and American Werewolf in London are ranked as the best werewolf movies and I have to agree.RD You and your movies I liked the book, but couldn t shake that feeling that I d only read half and skipped the rest because of the repetitive glossaries Yes, this is a textbook kinda thing and a great resource, but as a reader, it didn t make it a page turner in parts I d have go with 3 5.WD So we can agree on a straight 4 star review RD I think so Before we meld back together to form our indecisive whole, did you watch the chupacabra footage that was mentioned in the book What did you think Look at each other as their faces blend together Both DOG

    Good informational book, detailing several well known and some lesser known creatures of folklore I enjoyed the humor that made the experience of readingfun than slogging through a textbook There were a few minor errors a few dates were incorrect, but the vast majority of the book presented to my knowledge accurate information I enjoyed the glossaries, but really would have enjoyed an index All in all, a very informative and interesting read

    Just picked this up as I do to like to know a little bitof the mythology of many of the monsters I adore It seems like an interesting pop culture exploration of creatures that go bump in the night, at least the ones that may actually sink their teeth into you And I have learned some new perspectives on creatures I thought I knew everything about.

    Although a lot of the sections such as vampires and werewolves held a lot of known information, I love the chapters such as Cryptids that give information on the lesser known creatures out there Great informational book.

    Anyone else notice that either her head is on backwards or her arm is Plus, ladies, let s just make one thing clear Being a demon of the night is no excuse for letting your hair get tangled and nasty.


  6. Brian Brian says:

    A good book if you are looking for some history for the creatures it covers There are a few unique insights in some of the sections and a pretty good list of cryptids.
