    Wow, this blog is amazing. Thank you so much for putting this together, I think it could provide me with reading for at least the new couple of years or so! I have been trying to put together a list of nineteenth-century texts featuring monsters that are neither vampires nor werewolves for my PhD, I don’t suppose you have any recommendations?

      Thanks for the kind words!

      Off the top of my head, I recall that H.G. Wells and Sir Arthur Conan Doyle have quite a few crypto-zoology stories that might be the kind of thing you’re looking for. W.H. Hodgson also has a number of weird creatures in his fiction. Have you read Kelly Hurley’s book The Gothic Body? That’s chock-full of amazing critical analysis, but also flags up loads of obscure late-Victorian texts…

      Maybe other readers could add recommendations…?
