Yokai Attack! The Japanese Monster Survival Guide (book cover)

THIS WEEK ON MONSTERTALK, we interview Matt Alt and Hiroko Yoda, authors of Yokai Attack! The Japanese Monster Survival Guide, a book which details many folkloric monsters of Japan. From the slash-mouthed woman to a giant disgusting foot—these creatures have inspired fear and wonder in Japan and influenced books, movies and video-games. Visit http://www.yokaiattack.com/.
