It’s important to note that the resurfacing of Costello’s book is not an exercise in nostalgia. Anomalist Books are very careful and discerning when it comes to the issue of what should be republished and what should stay firmly forgotten. Costello’s work definitely falls into the first category. Approximately the first 120 pages or so are devoted to what is, without doubt, the world’s most famous lake monster, the aforementioned Nessie.

Great Job here. Mr. Costello really did his footwork and research. It is almost too much information, it makes your head spin but in a totally great way

very interesting and seems to be well researched

A classic cryptozoological study of the Loch Ness Monster, her kith and kin, world-wide. The photo section is truly exceptional, even though only in black-and-white. All sides of the question of what these animals are, and what they look like, are thoroughly investigated.

I had this book in 1974. A must have classic.
Fenrikree
The author discusses countless tales of unknown water monsters from around the world, and leaves judgement as to their existence to the reader. Well researched, it provides a great deal of information, albeit some of the reference sources are inaccurate, this, however is compensated by a book which is of value to the subjects of Cryptozoology/Dracontology and is also a worthwhile read.

Intelligent without being overly scholarly, this book proves to be a fascinating and engrossing read for monster enthusiasts of all ages!
