The Cryptopedia: A Dictionary of the Weird, Strange & Downright Bizarre, a noted book on cryptozoology, was written by Jonathan Maberry, an American author who has won multiple Bram Stoker Awards.
At the edge of the known world, demons, monsters, and baffling phenomena abound. To help you navigate this mystery-shrouded realm where the supernatural mingles with the paranormal, fright-guides Maberry and Kramer present The Cryptopedia. It divides the other worldly into chapters, from angels to poltergeists to UFOs and more. The authors decode occult symbols, demystify the art of fortune-telling, and discuss the myriad strange and bizarre forces at work in the Larger World.
