What is the difference between a ghost and a ghoul? How do you tell a good Jinn from a bad one? Where would you find a chimera or a manticore? What did Herodotus have to say about werewolves? In this enchanting book, television producer and mythozoologist Tam O’Malley explores the rich world of mythological animals, from banshees to harpies, griffins to vampires. Many of these ancient beasties remain very much alive today, filling our popular novels, screens and imaginations.
