    I've been searching for a book that I used to be frightened by as a kid. Not sure if it came out in the late 80's, but that is when I looked at it. maybe 88-92...? The book was a large hard-cover that had something about Transylvania on it.

    I have very few memories of it, but I remember it had a map and large full color illustrations of all sorts of demons and monsters, one was of large demon dogs about to attack a human who was on the edge of a cliff, another was of a house with a large pig-demon above the house..that's all I can really remember... Anybody have any clue what this book is called? links? i've been looking for it for months... Thanks

    It almost sounds like Ravenloft's "Guide to Transylvania."

    things are quiet until hitler decides he'd like to invade russia
    so, he does
    the russians are like "OMG WTF D00DZ, STOP TKING"
    and the germans are still like "omg ph34r n00bz"
    the russians fall back, all the way to moscow
    and then they all begin h4xing, which brings on the russian winter
    the germans are like "wtf, h4x"
    -- WW2 for the l33t

    I checked out, Ravenloft's "Guide to Transylvania.", wasn't it....This is driving me crazy. I wish I could remember more, I just remember a really big book probably 11x14 hardcover. All of the illustrations were full page color extremely detailed. The "demon-dogs/aliens" were about to attack this guy on a cliff somewhere...I can't remember, any other idea's? or place's to look?

    The only other thing I could think of would be one of White Wolf's Translyvania books. But those weren't late 80s.

    The book is called "The Tourists Guide to Transylvania" by Stewart Cowley and contained mailny illustrations by Les Edwards.
    It was published in London by Octopus Books in 1981 and the ISBN Reference is 0706416023.

    I had a copy when I was a kid and was fascinated by it. I'm now trying to track down a copy for my daughter.
