What the Critics Say
"Without doubt, the definitive Call of Cthulhu monster guide... a full-color feast for the eyes and the absolutely essential compendium of Lovecraftian deities and denizens."—Andrew Logan Montgomery, Exploring the Otherworlds of Fiction, Magic, and Gaming.
"Looking back over twenty-five years of monster volumes for Call of Cthulhu, it's obvious that Chaosium's new two-volume Malleus Monstrorum is not just the best, but miles ahead of its predecessors. It's beautifully designed, gorgeously illustrated, and stunningly complete."—Shannon Appelcline, RPGNet.
"An important entry in the 7th Edition library... the breadth of the project is authoritative and all-inclusive. If I have a question about a Cthulhu Mythos monster this is probably the first place I'm going to go to now."—Dave Thaumavore (YouTube review)
"Jaw-dropping... its exquisite art and its refined text make it one of the most striking publications of the current edition. Alongside The Grand Grimoire of Cthulhu Mythos Magic, it will be part of the wish list of all fans of the system."—Donjon Master (review is in Portuguese).
"The Malleus Monstrorum goes deep into the creation of a monster as an experience rather than a known thing... This is an excellent resource for those who want more out of the beasties in their game, or want to take a shot at creating their own cosmic horrors. All in all, Malleus Monstrorum sets an excellent standard for RPG bestiary collections, both now and in the future."—Never Read the Latin.
