The Monster Club is hidden beneath the London streets, known only to those who qualify, except when the author is taken along as a thank you for offering to help a starving man. He did not know the starving man, Erasmus, was a vampire or that the nourishment he wanted would be blood.
There he meets many strange creatures and learns their stories. It is comic as well as eerie and a few are genuinely chilling.
I love it!
