"An all original anthology from some of todays hottest supernatural writers, featuring stories of monster's from the monster's point of view. In most stories we get the perspective of the hero, the ordinary, the everyman, but we are all the hero of our own tale, and so it must be true for legions of monsters, from Lucifer to Mordred, from child-thieving fairies to Frankenstein's monster and the Wicked Witch of the West. From our point of view, they may very well be horrible, terrifying monstrosities, but of course they won't see themselves in the same light, and their point of view is what concerns us in these tales. Demons and goblins, dark gods and aliens, creatures of myth and legend, lurkers in darkness and beasts in human clothing...these are the subjects of The Monster's Corner. With contributions by Lauren Groff, Chelsea Cain, Simon R. Green, Sharyn McCrumb, Kelley Armstrong, David Liss, Kevin J. Anderson, Jonathan Maberry, and many others. "--

Overall, I enjoyed this book. Some of the stories (such as the Alphabet Monster story) were rather boring, and just not my cup of tea.

However, that is the risk you take when reading an anthology. Still, I would recommend this book to anyone who is a fan of the horror genre.

I've read anthologies edited by Christopher Golden before and they've been good, and I know and like four of the authors in here, but this book is just bad. It's very very dull. It's a good concept and has some good authors in it, but it just completely fails in execution.
