Waiting for minimum critic reviews


Varla Ventura, fan favorite on Huffington Post’s Weird News, frequent guest on Coast to Coast, and bestselling author of The Book of the Bizarre and Beyond Bizarre, introduces a new Weiser Books Collection of forgotten crypto-classics. Magical Creatures is a hair-raising herd of affordable digital editions, curated with Varla’s affectionate and unerring eye for the fantastic.

In dark Baudelairean tradition, Théophile Gautier weaves his characteristic Romantic prose into this disturbing 1836 tale of a devout priest lured victim by the wiles of beautiful and enigmatic Clarimonde.
