Beasts of Myth and Mystery

St John Parker and Jamieson

ISBN: 1-903035-19-1

Beasts and monsters, like ghosts, always exercise a peculiar fascination over the human mind, even though they embody terrors, horrors, matters from which we recoil. The exact origins of some of the beasts of myth and mystery which have come to us from the ancient world have perhaps been lost in the mists of time.

Many of the beasts described in Beasts of Myth and Mystery have made their appearance in J.K. Rowling's Harry Potter stories, C.S. Lewis' Narnia stories and J.R.R. Tolkien's Lord of the Rings. Others are waiting to be rediscovered.
