Shan't be shy

To keep up to date with the comments coming in about my own book, I should share the ample review from the Wall Street Journal. In hard copy, it sat well placed on the very back page, right alongside Neil Young.

Good company.

It's viewable for free for only a few more days, so let me quote Alexandra Mullen, who calls my monster "an entertainingly informative book that mixes academic talk and popular culture." She peppers her review with some of my favorite monster sightings ever, concluding with an endearing moment: “In the Beatles’ animated movie "Yellow Submarine" (1968), the monster morphs into John Lennon. ‘All he needs,’ notes Ms. Hitchcock wryly, ‘is love.’”
