The narrator of The Monstrumologist, Will Henry, is an orphan. He has come to live with and work for a doctor who has an unusual occupation: He hunts monsters. The Monstrumologist is Will Henry’s journal, in which he chronicles their adventures hunting a group of Anthropophagi, headless creatures whose mouths are in the middle of their stomachs.
Something about this, and I don’t know if it was the fact that it was told using a journal, or that the crazy monster-hunting guy was called in, reminded me of Bram Stoker’s Dracula. I’m going to admit that I thoroughly enjoyed the gore, the monster hunting, and the trying to figure out why Warthrope demands that Will Henry (who is always called by both his given name and his surname) stay away from John Kearns.
