The Incomplete Guide to Preternatural Creatures: Introduction

INTRODUCTION:

Dear Readers,

You have in your hands one of my precious guides to the preternatural world.  DO NOT LOSE IT.  In it you can find information about creatures you have only dreamed about (why I don’t know), these include vampires, werewolves, fairies, and even some creatures you’ve never heard about.  The information presented in this guide is, no matter what you may hear from others, very real indeed.  So if you even want to stand a chance against these creatures, should you ever meet one (hopefully you don’t), I highly suggest you start reading now.

Yours truly,

Dr. P. C. Howard, Preternatural Expert
