I dive in for a look at, and review of, Call of Cthulhu: Malleus Monstrorum from Chaosium Inc. Are these two volumes must haves for all Call of Cthulhu Keepers out there? Or would you be better served to slip out the door before purchasing this slipcase set? You’ll find out!

Note: I have no idea why I said “you can’t do worse” in the wrap up as I meant to say “you can’t do any better.” Doh!

Summary
While there have been loads of mythos monster tomes across the various editions, this is the essential monster book for Call of Cthulhu. While I have a minor quibble here and there, the two volumes are packed with great information for Keepers of both traditional Call of Cthulhu and the more action oriented Pulp Cthulhu to bring to the table. I do wish the paper was a touch thicker and there was a bit more art, especially in the Deities volume, but this still receives one of my highest recommendations!
