There may be unpublished products? Or the works of fans?
I've always wanted to see the Monstrous Compendium Gothic Earth Appendix.There may be more Universal Horror, such as The Mole People. :D

Not that I know of beyond the Ravenloft monstrous compendiums. The 3E version of the campaign setting had a section with a handful of new monsters and various Masques (creature enhancements that work a lot like templates but grant extra special abilities.)

Yes, I have read these. I really like the monsters from literary works(Such as Le Horla), and perhaps some new monsters are also scattered in the netbooks?

In Gothic Brazil, there's a strange, cursed lycanthrope-like shapechanger call the Boto cursed to turn to take the form of a man and fall in love with women, cursed to transform back and inadvertently kill his lover while taking her with him to the sea. (Although some women do seem to survive, though pregnant with the boto's children.) Check out the "Sweet Bay Village" article from the Book of Sacrifices at www.kargatane.com.

"The Waking Nightmare" in the Book of Sorrows (also on the kargatane website) has details of an illithilich that fell from the stars and the thrall's he's biomanced from.

While not necessarily specific to Gothic Earth, there's a few myth-inspired monsters here and there. In the Undead Sea Scrolls 2001 (FoS Website), there is an article about a banshee more in like with Celtic myth. "All Things Small and Helpful" in USS 2002 has some fey and undead adapted from Scandinavian folklore. The articles on Tsuu-Y-Teke in the Book of Shadows are for the Ravenloft domain of that same name, but that domain and its monsters draw heavily from Brazilian folklore and legend.

Most netbook articles seem to feature particular NPCs ala Ravenloft Monstrous Compendium II. There's an article taht adapts the the Whaetely Family to Gothic Earth in the Undead Sea Scrolls 2002 on the FoS website. In USS 2003, there's an article on the ghosts of the Tower of London. The Forgotten Children (from the Kargatane Website) has a number of monstrous NPCs for Gothic Earth
