Avoiding spoilers, I can confidently assert that the
Long Sun/Short Sun (which I consider a single novel),
has ghosts, vampires, AND werewolves\(skin-changers).
In fact, the name of the city of Viron is a subtle
reference to werewolves. There's even a creature from
the Black Lagoon and plenty of references to the golem
of Prague (which is a kind of Frankenstein's monster).

I can't think of an Invisible Man.
