Vampires, Werewolves and Zombies: Compendium Monstrum

Is this little black volume Stephen King’s dream journal? This minuscule monster manual looks as though it could have been packed next to Indiana Jones’ whip and pistol.  Did Lara Croft use this helpful handbook on her last tomb raiding expedition?


Vampires, Werewolves and Zombies: Compendium Monstrum is an engrossing fact filled handsome pocket sized reference guide to the fanged, the lupine and the undead.

Within the foil enhanced case bound hardcover are 168 pages that resemble old parchment paper filled with informative morsels about the aforementioned monsters. Use the attached blood red ribbon marker to keep your place when reading about travel within Transylvania, studying spooky notes or viewing mysterious ancient maps.

Collected from the papers of 19th-century monstrologists Herr Doktor Max Sturm and Baron Ludwig Von Drang, this intriguing book is a must have for anyone that loves the strange, the unusual and the macabre.

$9.95 is a mere pittance considering the information contained within could possibly save your life on a walk home alone on a cold and foggy night. (insert creepy menacing laugh here)


The ZeroChroma Projecto iPhone Case

The ZeroChroma Projecto for iPhone ($34.99) case is the “Swiss Army Knife” of iPhone cases. It provides protection, sound enhancement and hands-free viewing in a sleek and intelligent form factor.

The slim case protects the sides and rear of your iPhone while still allowing access to key buttons. Its “Intelligent Wrap Protection” safeguards your phone from drops and scratches but leaves the front of your device completely accessable. The Projecto was designed with contoured finger dimples that assist in gripping your phone intuitively.

A retractable sound scoop slides out from the bottom of the case to direct sound from the speakers to your ears and your voice to the microphone.

My favorite feature is the 18 angle multi click theater stand which allows you to view media on your iPhone hands-free. This build in kickstand for the phone folds flat into the case when not in use and would be perfect for airplane use or entertaining a child at a restaurant.
