About Julebestiariet /A Christmas Bestiary  

In Julebestiariet/A Christmas Bestiary Benni Bødker and John Kenn Mortensen have gathered long forgotten knowledge of the horrors that creeps around in the darkness of Christmas time. 

Everybody knows that if you behave, Santa will come bearing gifts. But who comes if you don’t behave? Our ancestors knew that at this time of year the gates to other darker worlds are wide open for terrifying creatures to enter our world. 

Knowing how to act around Christmas time is vital in order to avoid or survive crossing paths with one of these ancient beasts. That’s why Benni Bødker and John Kenn Mortensen have teamed up to create A Survival Guide for everyone to know how to survive Christmas time.

The two are not strangers in the monster world. Both have created many stories with a broad variety of supernatural creatures. John Kenn Mortensen is known for his creepy illustrations in Post-it Monsters and Benni Bødker has written chilling stories about everything from ghosts to demons and werewolves. With their expertise in the field they felt that they had no choice but to gather all the information about the Christmas monsters to help you all stay safe in the darkest month of the year.

"Horror is comfort zone" Benni Bødker interviews John Kenn Mortensen at nummer9.dk
