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. Asian Monsters is the third in a coffee table book series from Fox Spirit Books with dark fiction and art about monsters from around the world. ‘Another marvellous manticore of monsters: aswang, vetalas, bloodwomen, lelepah, hulijing, robot ghosts and the already-dead. And the scariest thing of all? The normalcy through which they shuffle and swoop: our monstrous world of patriarchy and privilege, of disenchantment, drone warfare and terror.’ Mark Bould, 2016 Pilgrim Award winning author, critic and editor of Studies in Global Science Fiction, Science Fiction Film and Television Journal, Africa SF, and SF Now.
