And what rough beast, its hour come round at last, Slouches towards Bethlehem to be born?

This one right here does.  This rough beast came in yesterday and from what I read this has easily become my favorite tome of critters.  I really enjoy the touch of the lairs and the general commentary on each horror.  It goes beyond a mere physical description.  I'm sure many of you out there got a copy or at least peeked at the PDF, if you haven't indulge yourself.  It is worth it.

The only problem I had with the book was it came dinged up.  It doesn't appear to have been damage when it was shipped from FGG, but when it was shipped to FGG.  On the back cover mine has a big gouge and two corners of the front cover are bent slightly.  I'm not really too fussy about the condition of my books, but if its going to get damage I would like that privilege to do it.

But aside from a few scuffs and dings, this beast of a book is money well spent.
