Godzilla is a Sad Monster

Frank Lesser’s Sad Monsters is a collection of humorous stories about unloved ogres and lonely leviathans. The website cautions, “If a vampire broke up with you, your pet gremlin had to be put to sleep, or you regret undergoing that exorcism, reading this book may reopen old wounds, in many cases literally.”

In addition to crypto-racist Bigfoot and the Groom of Frankenstein, Godzilla struggles with ennui over his umpteenth destruction of Tokyo. “Starting to wonder, what’s the point? They’re just going to rebuild.”
