Ogres, giants and bogeymen embody some of our deepest fears, dominating popular storytelling in various media, from classic fairy tales such as 'Puss in Boots' to the cannibal monster Hannibal Lecter, and from Frankenstein to Men in Black. Following her brilliant study of fairy tales, From the Beast to the Blonde, this rich, enthralling new book explores the ever-increasing presence of such figures of male terror, and the stratagems we invent to allay the monsters we conjure up.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"A rich feast of a volume. No one knows more about the myths, tales and large dollops of art and culture which go into the shaping of our imagination" -- Lisa Appignanesi * Independent, Books of the Year *
"No Go the Bogeyman is a study of terror. It is not a book for the faint-hearted or the intellectually fragile... A fascinating and disturbing book" * Sunday Telegraph *
"This is a writer with power to change your imagination... Startling and shocking and delightful, No Go the Bogeyman is a treasure trove of stories, an indispensible reference work, a compendium of cultural images" * Independent *
"Warner is a wonderful storyteller... Her range of references is startling... but she keeps her head and treads nimbly through, following the thread of her argument... with humane learning, wit and ease" -- Gillian Beer * Daily Telegraph *
