For well over a century, Monster Hunter International has kept the world safe from supernatural threats small and large–and in some cases very, very large. Now, join us as MHI opens their archives for the first time. From experienced Hunters on their toughest cases, to total newbies’ initial encounters with the supernatural, The Monster Hunter Files reveals the secret history of the world’s most elite monster fighting force. Find out what happened when Agent Franks took on the Nazis in World War Two, or how the Vatican’s Combat Exorcists deal with Old Ones in Mexico. What takes place in a turf war between trailer park elves and gnomes? From the most powerful of mystical beings to MHI’s humble janitor, see the world of professional monster hunting like never before.
Featuring seventeen all new tales based on Larry Correia’s bestselling series, from New York Times bestselling authors Jim Butcher, John Ringo, Jessica Day George, Jonathan Maberry, Faith Hunter, and many more.
