Description

Forget Godzilla. Forget the giant beasties karate-chopped into oblivion by endless incarnations of Ultraman, Kamen Rider, and the Power Rangers. Forget the Pocket Monsters. Forget Sadako from 'The Ring' and that creepy all-white kid from 'The Grudge.' Forget everything you know about tales of terror before reaching for this book. Yokai Attack! is a nightmare-inducing one-stop guide to Japan's traditional creepy-crawlies and monsters. It will surely convince you that Japan's tradition of fascinating monsters is a long one-yet far from being history.
