Giovanni Todaro The Man-Eater of Gevaudan

This is a true story, happened in France in the XVIII century. It talks about the hunt, lasted for a good four years, against a mysterious anthropophagous beast, which plunged into terror the poor people of the Gévaudan and of the Auvergne, today Lozère. This is the story of the men in charge of killing what was simply nicknamed the Beast, of the strategies which were carried out, of the beatings that were made even with dozens of thousands of men and many packs of dogs, of the long posts in the wild mountains of that area with such a terrible climate, so described : "Nine months of winter, three months of hell". In spite of the soldiers and the famous hunters sent by the King of France, the monstrous beast continued committing slaughters most of all of women and children, attacking hundreds of times and making at least 131 victims, many of which were devoured. Only after years of terror the Beast was finally killed and they were able to ascertain which species it belonged to.

H.G. Wells The World Set Free

The history of mankind is the history of the attainment of external power. Man is the tool-using, fire-making animal. From the outset of his terrestrial career we find him supplementing the natural strength and bodily weapons of a beast by the heat of burning and the rough implement of stone. So he passed beyond the ape. From that he expands.

Ulrike Schneeberg Making Boys and Girls in Picturebooks with Monsters

Monsters are ubiquitous in children's culture, including picturebooks. Monsters represent the mischievous and wild side of a global market for children's consumer products that is contrasted by hyper-feminized and sanitized dolls, such as Barbie and Disney Princess. In picturebooks, typically marketed to children aged four to eight, the strong presence of monstrous characters may reflect a synonymous use of the words 'child' and 'monster' in everyday speech. The suggested affiliation or even interchangeability of monster and child in picturebooks is particularly perplexing when compared to the regular relationship between monster and human character in 'grown-up' culture, which threatens the very essence of humanity - and which is therefore of paramount importance to understanding what it means to be human in that culture. While the field of monster studies in the humanities is thriving, this is the first study of the omnipresence of monsters in children's culture and the markedly different relation between child and monster. Examining 65 English language picturebooks from the last 50 years, the author explores the textual conditions and functions of monsters in relation to the term 'child'. The focus lies on the mechanisms and effects of gender constructions within these narratives.

Chris Relitz The Beast Who Once Was. New Insight Into End Times Prophecy

The Bible says that there was a beginning of things, and that there will be an end. Near the end we will see a hero and a villain arise, the son of God will battle the son of Satan. The prophecies in the Bible have a great deal to say about this, but one prophecy has been overlooked... until now. "I will explain to you the mystery of the beast who once was, now is not, and yet will come. This calls for a mind with wisdom (Revelation 17: 7- 9)." Here we are told that the Beast, the son of Satan, once lived, but at one time he was not alive, and that he would live again. The Beast will seem to recover from a fatal wound (Revelation 13: 3). Not a nearly fatal wound. He will seem to recover from death! In the end times he will be seen to rise from the grave in imitation of Jesus Christ. Who was the Beast? But more importantly, why is that mysterious fraternity of Freemasons preparing to come to his aid? We will examine their own writings and rituals to confirm that they are devoted to the Beast who once was.

Lars Thomas Weird Waters. The Lake and Sea Monsters of Scandinavia and the Baltic States

Aquatic monsters have a long and venerable history in the waters of northern Europe, dating at least all the way back to what must surely be the grandfather of all lake-, sea- and other monsters, the mighty Midgårdsorm or Jormungandr from the old Norse mythology - a creature long enough to encircle the globe and bite its own tail. Though some have since claimed sightings of monsters several hundred metres long, some even confusing the creatures with small islands, nothing has ever come even remotely close to the gargantuan size of the Midgårdsorm. And naturally, the only one who ever dared to challenge this monster was the old Norse God Thor - the God of Thunder. In many ways, the Midgårdsorm is the archetypical mythological monster, but that doesn't mean all monsters are figments of the imagination. The borderline between fantasy and reality is one that is fine and fluid, with aspects of one realm carried over into the other. Real creatures can so easily clothe themselves in mythological splendour, and thus become bigger, scarier, and more fabulous. In the centuries following the time of the Midgårdsorm, many kinds of strange creatures havebeen seen in the waters of northern Europe. The monsters are still very much alive, in tradition as well as in reality.

Charles Gould Mythical Monsters

A geological surveyor by trade, English author CHARLES GOULD (1834-1893) was rather more interested in the strange ornithological specimens he collected on his journeys around the world. Mythical Monsters, the result of this deep and abiding fascination, is one of the classics of the field of cryptozoology, or the study of unknown or hidden creatures.Mythical Monsters "reflects the curiosity for the natural world that [Gould] carried with him in his travels for most of his life," says cryptozoologist Loren Coleman in his new introduction. "The book, naturally, dwells on geological mysteries early in its pages, merging in his thoughts on Atlantis, the Great Flood, and evidence for such events he saw written in the land. But the bulk of the book is about 'monsters' that intrigued Gould, including the unicorn, the phoenix, and the dragon." Monsters also features an essential section on the mysterious beasts of the ocean depths.This new edition, a replica of the original 1886 first edition complete with the original illustrations, is part of Cosimo's Loren Coleman Presents series.LOREN COLEMAN is author of numerous books of cryptozoology, including Bigfoot!: The True Story of Apes in America and Mothman and Other Curious Encounters.

Destroy All Monsters: Grow Live Monsters

Grow Live Monsters is a selection from short "home-made' no-budget 8mm, super 8 and 16mm film fantasies made between 1971-1976. During high school, I began a correspondence with the underground filmmaker, actor, and performance artist Jack Smith, which led to a summertime meeting with him in 1973. Soon after, the formation of Destroy All Monsters began in Ann Arbor, Michigan, with artists Mike Kelley, Jim Shaw and Niagara. Most of the films revolved around this group of friends and the wall of noise we'd create in basement cellars and in live performance. The soundtrack is a mixture of vintage DAM with rearranged vinyl samples and recordings that reflect an appropriation of Smith's exotica aesthetic." - Cary Loren Grow Live Monsters (1971-1976) - The early films of DAM Shake A Lizard Tail Or Rust Belt Rump: Montage of latenight TV adverts, techno club dancers, and Z grade monster clips Monsters Redux: Quttakes, concert footage, band memoribilia, and photos.

Munir Moon The Beltway Beast - Abridged Version. Stealing from Future Generations and Destroying the Middle Class

The Beltway Beast: Stealing from Future Generations and Destroying the Middle Class, transcends the anger and frustration of American people with their leaders failing to solve the country's problems. It documents our current reality and offers transformational ideas, such as shrinking the Presidential Primary process by utilizing technology, reducing healthcare cost through Smart Patient Credits, and using a Value Based Tax system that transfers power from Washington back to the states. The Beltway Beast is an outsider's prospective of Washington and the paralyzing politics that have brought progress to a halt. This book offers new ideas to the problems that are suffocating America. Too often we accept the status quo instead of questioning why things are the way they are. For example, why is the working income taxed at a higher rate than the non-working income? Why do the majority of Americans who are independent have to choose only between Democrats and Republicans for the President of the United States? Why can't we reduce the cost of medical care so that it is affordable instead of relying on health insurance companies as the only solution? The Beltway consists of Washington, D.C. and surrounding counties, and the Beast includes the Military-Industrial Complex, multinational corporations, foreign agents, lobbyists and Congress. The Beltway Beast is directed toward a system controlled by the Democrats and the Republicans representing the ghosts of the past with...

Charles H. Fort The Book of the Damned Charles H. Fort The Book of the Damned Новинка

Charles H. Fort The Book of the Damned

"'The Book of the Damned' has inspired scientists, science fiction writers, movie makers, and devotees for almost a hundred years. The damned data Charles Fort gathered covered so many marvels, mysteries, and monsters--including unidentified aerial objects, frog falls, ship disappearances, red rains, earthquake lights, lake monsters, animal mutilations, psychic explosions, and much, much more."I discovered the works of Charles Fort in 1959 and jumped into the pursuit of the unknown in the decades that followed. All the while, Fort's humor and skepticism have served me well."Charles Fort, who died in 1932, would have nothing to do with the subculture of followers that grew up around his work. He even refused to join the original Fortean Society of the 1920s, which included some of the most distinguished intellectuals of the time, including Ben Hecht, Buckminster Fuller, and Oliver Wendell Holmes, with a guiding role taken by founder Tiffany Thayer. Being a Fortean is not a religious affiliation, just an appreciation of the oneness of it all."All journeys are personal, and the one you are about to take with the charm, wit, and insights of Charlie Fort is, I'm sure you will discover, like riding the tail of a comet, as one reviewer said when this tome first appeared. Buckle up for your excursion into the universe of the inexplicable."

The Beltway Beast: Stealing from Future Generations and Destroying the Middle Class, transcends the anger and frustration of American people with their leaders failing to solve the country's problems. It documents our current reality and offers transformational ideas, such as shrinking the Presidential Primary process by utilizing technology, reducing healthcare cost through Smart Patient Credits, and using a Value Based Tax system that transfers power from Washington back to the states. The Beltway Beast is an outsider's prospective of Washington and the paralyzing politics that have brought progress to a halt. This book offers new ideas to the problems that are suffocating America. Too often we accept the status quo instead of questioning why things are the way they are. For example, why is the working income taxed at a higher rate than the non-working income? Why do the majority of Americans who are independent have to choose only between Democrats and Republicans for the President of the United States? Why can't we reduce the cost of medical care so that it is affordable instead of relying on health insurance companies as the only solution? The Beltway consists of Washington, D.C. and surrounding counties, and the Beast includes the Military-Industrial Complex, multinational corporations, foreign agents, lobbyists and Congress. The Beltway Beast is directed toward a system controlled by the Democrats and the Republicans representing the ghosts of the past with...
