Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

HP Newquist's fast-paced account reveals how long-ago myths about the kraken transformed into the modern study of Architeuthis dux, the giant squid.Weaving scientific discovery with historical accounts—along with the giant squids appearance in film and literature—Here There Be Monsters explores the mystery of this creature in fascinating detail. Readers will find that the monster remains hidden no longer, because scientists have finally seen the kraken with their own eyes . . . alive and rising up out of the sea.

Synopsis:

HERE THERE BE MONSTERS: THE KRAKEN explores the existence of the mysterious giant squid, a sea creature that may have inspired stories of the legendary sea monster known as the Kraken.

About the Author

HP Newquist writes about all kinds of things, from human brains and giant squids to monsters and music. For this book, he traveled all the way to Australia to view a frozen giant squid and then handled Architeuthis arms at Yale University. Despite his best efforts, he has never seen a live giant squid. Or any other monster, for that matter.
