Gothic Horror Done Right

Imagine that Mary Shelley and H. P. Lovecraft had a lovechild who grew up in the modern US. That genius child would write The Monstrumologist, a book that combines action, mind-blowing revelations and philosophical introspection. I don't usually read horror, and I loved this book. Read it!
