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.
