Summary

Though not widely acknowledged, the Green Mountain state is home to more winged wonders, wet weirdoes, and crypto creatures than any other state in the country. You probably know about Champ, the elusive monster of Lake Champlain. But what about Northfield's Pigman? And Richford's The Awful? Wherever you are in Vermont--in town or country, river or lake, land or sky--you're never far from theunknown. Or the unexpected. Joseph A. Citro, respected monster hunter, brings to light over sixty Vermonsters, many captured in exquisite, ghoulish detail by the pen, brush, and ink of artist Stephen R. Bissette. Designed as both a cautionary tale and handy field manual for those who dare, The Vermont Monster Guide will be of interest to natives and tourists, to young and old . . . though it may not be suitable for readers with fragile constitutions. The authors' previous collaboration, The Vermont Ghost Guide, is a popular favorite and the perfect companion to this volume. WARNING: The authors and publisher are not responsible for any unfortunate encounters that may result from the reading of this book.

Author Biography

JOSEPH A. CITRO has written numerous novels, collections of arcane folklore, and ghost guides chronicling the dark side of Vermont and New England. His classic, Green Mountain Ghosts, Ghouls, and Unsolved Mysteries, is the most comprehensive collection of offbeat Vermont lore ever assembled. STEPHEN R. BISSETTE has been a professional cartoonist, illustrator and artist for over thirty years and is a teacher at the Center for Cartoon Studies in White River Junction, Vermont. He is best known for his award-winning collaboration with writer Alan Moore on DC Comics' Saga of the Swamp Thing.
