Title spotlight - "Creatures! Thirty Years of Monster Stories" edited by John Langan & Paul Tremblay

After finding out about one anthology dedicated to monsters, Christopher Golden’s “The Monster’s Corner”, I recently discovered yet another very interesting one, “Creatures! Thirty Years of Monster Stories”. In my almost daily wanders around the Internet I found that John Langan and Paul Tremblay edited a new anthology featuring monster fiction and due to be released by Prime Books in November this year. I have to say that not only that the John Langan and Paul Tremblay’s anthology sounds interesting, but also the authors line-up looks very appealing, with some of the heavy names of speculative fiction present with stories on “Creatures! Thirty Years of Monster Stories”. With such a strong Table of Contents November seems so far away, but until then we can keep up to date by visiting the blog dedicated to the anthology edited by John Langan and Paul Tremblay.
