Monsters: An Investigator’s Guide to Magical Beings takes you on a harrowing journey into the realm of monsters and the reality of the impossible. Bringing together folklore, Western magical philosophy and field experience, this book is required reading for both active and armchair monster hunters.
Between these covers you will find a chilling collection of fiendish facts and folklore such as why true vampires are the least attractive, five different kinds of ghosts, the magical origins of the werewolf legends, hidden connections between faery lore and UFOs, and where dragons are found today. This is an essential field guide to monsters from angels to zombies with advice on monster investigation and magical self-defense.
This latest edition not only has a new chapter on tulpas (objects or beings created via mental powers), but the chapters on vampires and chimeras are significantly expanded with new material. Plus, the section on monster investigation has been thoroughly updated with details on new technology and the approach of the media to monster hunting.

One of the most widely respected voices in contemporary occult studies, John Michael Greer is the award-winning author of more than 50 books, including The New Encyclopedia of the Occult, The Druidry Handbook, The Celtic Golden Dawn, and Circles of Power. He has also written four books on peak oil and the future of industrial society, including The Long Descent and The Ecotechnic Future. An initiate in Freemasonry, the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn, and the Order of Bards, Ovates, and Druids, Greer served as the Grand Archdruid of the Ancient Order of Druids in America (AODA) for 12 years. He lives in Cumberland, Maryland, with his wife Sara.
