       Additional Information  
     
      In his classic Guide to Extraterrestials, Wayne Douglas Barlowe brought us science fiction's greatest aliens. Now he does the same for the bizarre and beautiful beings of a thousand years of fantasy and horror.

    Here is the Unicorn, still shimmering from the imagination of The Last Unicorn author Peter S. Beagle. Here in all its disgusting glory lurks H. P. Lovecraft's Gug, along with Robert Jordan's Trolloc. Here you will meet Marion Zimmer Bradley's Morgaine from The Mists of Avalon, Conan-creator Robert E. Howard's Bran Mak Morn, Clive Barker's Gek AGek, Drool Rockworm from Stephen R. Donaldson's Chronicles of Thomas Covenant the Unbeliever, and many wondrous more.

    Fifty fantastic creatures in all. Awesome, incredible, startling, disturbing, these creatures are all rendered with exquisite accuracy and excruciating detail. Barlowe's Guide to Fantasy is the essential companion for anyone who has ever been thrilled by the terrifying and wonderful creatures found in fantastic literature, and wished to see them brought to life by a modern master.
