ooooh lynnie!! i remember this book! twas assigned to us by ms...i forget. basta yeah, really really nice book. pero siyempre back then wala pa tayong alam sa mitochondria whatever shit.
This book's not new, but I really appreciate the fallen angels, Nef-somethings, becuase this goes back to classical origins of monstrum. One thing documented back then was that over-tall, angelic beings came and bred with humans, creating the half-breeds that made it into the listing of Pliny's Creatures.
