Tales of Monstrosity

I challenged a group of authors to write about monsters, but not the usual monsters we often see in stories. You know what I mean… European vampires, werewolves, or zombies. We already have plenty of stories about those creatures, so let’s give the other monsters some time in the spotlight! Chupacabras, gorgons, gargoyles, gnomes, El Cucuy, and so many more. I asked for monsters that are less common, and they also added a little (or not so little) personal twist. This monstrously fun creation is called Tales of Monstrosity: Monster, Myths, and Miscreants.
