Written or Edited by Philip Athans

From Writer's Digest Books

"…an ideal monster writing 101 guide and anyone who’s even considering looking into writing monsters in any format should read it. A wealth of information for the new writer and useful bits and pieces of good info to remind the grizzled old timer writers (like myself) of what writing monsters is all about."

Steven Dawes,

Edited for Wizards of the Coast, by best selling fantasy legend R.A. Salvatore.

"The world of publishing is growing more complicated, but also more interesting for those willing to think outside the box. I know I am, and having Phil Athans out there as a resource takes the scare out of it."

R.A. Salvatore
