This is an excellent read, with plenty of very obscure references to monsters in films & TV. However, the lack of mention of some obvious big screen monsters like the Alien, the Predator, the Thing, etc, makes this book inexplicably incomplete. It's not as if (as I first suspected) Jones had opted to concentrate more on older monster films & shows - there are references right up to the late 1990s, so it's hard to understand his reasoning. On the other hand, I was able to use the book to find out the title of an obscure 1977 US TV movie that I remembered from my youth (Curse of the Black Widow), so it's certainly pretty comprehensive in other ways. It's an interesting read in itself, and ideal if you discover an unusual monster film or TV episode and you want to know more about it - Jones' thumbnails of each film/show are very detailed. A very good book, but not perfect.
