Read full description of the books Monsters of L.A.:Frankenstein, Dracula, Mr. Hyde, the Phantom, the Hunchback...they're all here, the ones you grew up watching on the silver screen. But these monsters aren't lumbering across a fog-shrouded moor or clambering along the ramparts of a Gothic castle; no, they're here, in sunny modern-day Southern California, in places you know and may have visited. That homeless vet with the rebuilt leg lounging before the liquor store in Santa Monica - could that be Frankenstein's monster? The eerie host making promises at the end of an Orange County amusement park ride - is he really the Devil? Some of these monsters you might recognize instantly - it's hard to disguise a Giant Monster, after all - but you'll never know what to expect in these stories that range from black humor to the farthest extremes of extreme fiction.
Each of these twenty never-before-published tales is also accompanied by a brief essay talking about how the story was written, providing some fascinating insight into both the mythology behind the monsters, and the history of Southern California. Before this book is over, you might agree that Los Angeles is really one of the darkest places on earth.
