In Monsters of the Sea, Richard Ellis, one of the country's foremost authorities on ocean life, casts his net wide in search of the most unusual aquatic creatures - from mermaids to manatees to the Loch Ness monster and the mythical sea serpent for whom the giant squid has frequently been mistaken. He examines the literary sources of sea-monster lore, from The Odyssey to Jules Verne to Peter Benchley. Highly entertaining, packed with curiosities, and backed by the author's impeccable scientific credentials, Monsters of the Sea is a one-of-a-kind journey into two extremely fertile worlds: the human imagination and the deep blue sea. (6 x 9, 448 pages, b&w photos, illustrations)
