More Tall Tales To Tell

A while back I gave a partial recap of some of my favorite links that I complied when I researched the Kraken for Robot 13. If you like, you can look at the original post here~ I double checked all the links & they still work.

I had a few really goodies that I never put up, plus a few that people have sent me since that post, so I figured now would be as good a time as any to share them.

The UnMuseum has a nice entry on the history of the Kracken. While they point out that a creature named a "Kraken" isn't really a proper Greek monster, there is a tradition of squid like monsters in Greek lore.

Go to Historychannel's "Monsterquest" site & check out this: if you click on "all monsters" and select "giant squid," you'll see some great content.

Gentle Giant has an AWESOME action figure of the Ray Harryhausen Kraken for sale!

I was emailed this Kraken image, from a RPG website~ very nice art.

The Melbourne Symphony Orchestra plays a snappy tune called "Kraken."

Even better~ I was sent this link, for a "squid-centric" website simply called "Squid."

From the highly addictive (and highly recommended) game spore~ here is a dancing Kraken.

Finally- one of my favorites is the monster alphabet by Ape-Lad. Aside from a Kraken, there are plenty of fun monsters to enjoy...
