I'm curious to see what these monsters they're hunting are. Mindless automatons, beasts from hell, intelligent foes?

Oh, and I want to see the "weapons" from the sidebar in GURPS Undead update for 4e. There are efficient ways to kill zombies, and guns and swords are not among them. :)

I'm already running something like this using just the basic set. The templates included in Characters, along with monsters from Creatures of the Night, actually make a pretty awesome basis for a modern monster hunters campaign.

But I'm likely to grab these books, because it looks cool, and might let me run a different style campaign.

Never bring a chainsaw to a zombie fight. All you get is covered with infected tissue.

I would think a good cross-over book would Dungeon Fantasy-Monster Hunters which would give a Ravenloft feel to Dungeon Fantasy. Instead of a monster just sitting in a dungeon waiting to be hacked, the monster might be active in the surrounding towns and the PCs must track it down and defeat it.

Not being a big horror fan, I suspect all I'll do with this one is buy it and let it collect e-dust... unless it has 4E rules for Ghostbusting. (Who you gonna call?)

IS Monster Hunters based on the Monster Hunters Inc novel by Larry Correia
which also looks to become a series like the Dresden Files

Not directly, apparently. It may have been an inspiration. This has been discussed here before.

Heck, I've been running an off-and-on again campaign of MHI - Sacramento since shortly after the first book was published by Baen. (Note to self - take picture of the happy face patch at the city limits sign & post on Facebook.)

The product looks interesting.
