From the cover: A monstrous mantle of grey-black slime with an insatiable appetite; a gigantic hairless caterpillar exuding an odour of corruption and decay; a purple patch of vapour with a white projection like a vultures beak; a hideous creature with a neck seventy feet long and a deaths-head on its breast these are just some of the horrors gathered together in this monster anthology.
Vampires, Werewolves, Glantokians, the Big Colugo, a mechanical murdering monster, and the ghastly Outsider from whom everyone flees in terror make up this galaxy of horrors.
