The beasts have arrived.
A catalog of mythic beasts and demons that were summoned by esoteric means. Once owned by Count Allesandro Di Cagliostro, it was thought forever lost in a fire at the Chateau de Versailles. Two hundred years later, twenty-six modern day masters of the macabre bring The Bestiarum Vocabulum back from the ashes.

The reviews are beginning to appear:
From the blog Swords & Stitchery:
“The book’s premise is rife for plundering for gaming. The idea of a catalog of beasts and damned things from beyond the pale of man is at once original and entertaining as well as engaging. The stories are violent literature and a massacre on the senses. These don’t pull punches but they do entertain and flipping through the book I was entertained as the world froze outside my window last night. I have to say that there are more then a few ideas that as a Call of Cthlulu or Dungeon Master I filed away for later use.”
“There are a lot of wonderfully wicked monsters and demons here. I loved D.T. Griffith’s efforts, Barbie Wilde’s story of revulsion, Tim Dry’s really nasty little piece and Lily Child’s wonderful beastie. On average the book really was a great read.”
