The cryptozoology book was a bust. I can't blame a book for not being what I was looking for, but page after page of sturgeons mistaken for whatever the local variant on Nessie is gets a bit dull. Plus it took itself way to seriously. Pffft.
What I'm looking for, I suppose, is a decent encyclopedia of paranormal creatures from around the world. And please, let it be written by someone who has a sense of humor. No deathly dull serious scholarly tone here. The sad thing is that I know I used to have one.
