Presented as a cryptozoological book written by the ersatz Cryptozoological Society of London, it is actually . Instead this book covers the wide range of legendary creatures you’d expect from a mythology book.

Presented as a cryptozoological book written by the ersatz Cryptozoological Society of London, it is actually more of a tongue-in-cheek book that treats legendary beasts as cryptids. Oh, and there’s some actual cryptids in there like apemen and the Loch Ness monster, but otherwise ANOTUW is neither fish nor fowl nor alectrocampus. The only actual cryptids are giant invertebrates, lake monsters, the chupacabras, and apemen.

Drawing on historical records and firsthand observations from the annals of exploration, the authors index a wide range of fantastical creatures, humanoid races, and terrifying monsters, sharing whatever illustrations and photographs they could unearth. 20,000 first printing.

This is a handsomely published book, with thick glossy paper and numerous pictures and illustrations. However, if you get it thinking it is going to be a serious or archival study of cryptozoology, you will be disappointed. Its greater emphasis is on purely mythological creatures like mermaids, elves, the sphinx, unicorns, gorgons and other creatures of fantasy, only it purports to pass them all off as not only actual living creatures, but as still surviving in remote pockets of the world. The volume does so with a straight face, and purported eyewitness accounts. If you are fascinated by accounts of creatures that "might be", like bigfoot, lake monsters, mothman, or dinosaur survivors, then stay away from this book, which is basically a treatise on fantasy creatures prepared for a junior high audience with liberal dashes of pseudo-science thrown in for good measure. Again, its copious illustrations and colorful format are its best feature. More serious students of mysterious creatures would be better served by The Unexplained, by Dr. Karl P. Shuker, an equally well-illustrated book that is dedicated to more probable instances of cryptozoology.

I bought this book in the hopes of having a solid piece of literature on my shelf on the cryptids of the world and for some intriguing late night reading. I was a bit let down. For starters, I already had this book. It was published 6 years after this release under the title of Fabulous Creatures and other Magical Beings. That was a little annoying to say the least but shame on me for not researching my purchases better, ok, moving on. My biggest disappointment with this book is its lack of hard facts or any real scientific information to go along with each subject. It does come with some but not to the level I was expecting it to contain. There are numerous stories included for each cryptid but they are just that, stories. Don't get me wrong, they are somewhat entertaining, and most of them come with some very interesting pictures and drawings but if your interested in really dissecting information to get to the cold hard facts of some of the mysteries of life, this probably isn't the book for you. If you are new to the subject of cryptozoology and want to dabble a bit to see what you think of the subjects or if it interests you, then this may be a possible choice for you.

I lke the book, but I didn't like the condition of the book when I got it. It smells of cigarette smoke really bad and it is pretty beat up. I understand that I was buying it used though, but the cigarette smoke is a bit much.

If you are a dyed-in-the-wool cryptozoologist then it is best to leave this book on the shelf. This is more of a New Age encyclopedia of fanciful creatures and reports that sound like they belong in a fairy tale. The illustrations are quite impressive but the info is not scientifically sound. You are better off with Costello's "The Magic Zoo" or Ley's "Exotic Zoology". If you are into Mythology then this book is definitely for you.

Cause it so amazing!

It's not easy to review a book like this. Anyone with a genuine interest in cryptozoology will certainly be disappointed at the whimsical and irreverent tone, which pokes fun at the visionary pioneers who have conducted scientifically painstaking research into the likes of Nessie, Mokele m'bembe and Bigfoot. A layperson however, will probably find much to amuse them and just possibly enough material to cultivate an interest in this most fascinating of topics. Amongst the silly stuff are some real facts about cryptids. The Chupacabras in particular is fairly well described and depicted. Separating fact from fancy and blatant fabrication however is not always easy and the running gag about some fictional crusty old gentlemens' club (the address given is actually the Royal Academy of Arts) does wear a bit thin after a while. If you are seeking genuine and scientifically researched material about cryptids, you would do far better by starting with Bernard Heuvelmans's seminal work or even dredging the Internet's many cryptozoology sites for references. In that respect, I would only give this book one star. If, however, you are looking for a book to foster an interest in mystery animals in a young relative or friend (my 11 year old son thought it was "cool"), then you could do a lot worse than this. My overall rating reflects the response from both extremes of potential customer.

I never thought that I would argue with Loren Coleman (whose books are great), but "A Natural History of the Unnatural World" is a fun book. It's not a hoax - in fact, I can't see any adult (or even bright children) taking it seriously. This book belongs squarely in the realm of fantasy. But it's engaging fantasy. As a cryptozoology text, it's useless, and as authentic folklore, it's not much better. But this is a nice book to look through and speculate on how creatures like these could exist - not unlike Peter Dickinson's "Flight of Dragons." I have seen a couple of people giving high marks to Shuker's "The Unexplained," and I'll agree with that; check that one out if you want something serious.
This bizarre book is a real page turner. It describes at least one hundred beasts believed by normal zoologists to be fictional. Dive into the abyssal lair of the giant octopus, explore the jungles of Latin America in search of the beautiful coatl, or watch two yale jousting at an African water hole. This unique piece will never cease to thrill and delight the reader. Why did the phoenix (Phoenos immortalis) go extinct? Why are unicorns (Equus monoceros) attracted to maidens? The answers to all of these questions and more are found within this books strange and intriguing pages. This unique work will never bore the reader.
