Just a second...(grunt) I just need to (yelp!) something a bit different for this... (cry!) review!

Reader Dan: Ah. That's better.

Writer Dan: Isn't it? We should split the psyche more often. 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
Good informational book, detailing several well-known and some lesser-known creatures of folklore. I enjoyed the humor that made the experience of reading more fun 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 bit more of 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.
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.
It's a good research book. But not a good lesiurely read.
