Hi, I'm a Mindflayer, but don't let that worry you
Good selections for Halloween. Not the sort of monsters I would use often, but interesting enough. The annis hag's death hug will be fun to narrate in combat.

Honestly, the more I read up on them, the more I realize that I've really never used hags as a DM. 5e is really bringing them to life in a way that makes me now think of all sorts of fun and creative ways I could bring them into a campaign, and from what we've seen so far, I'm sure Volo's will only add to that...

Role playing the hags in Strahd was a very fun experience for me as a DM. So creepy and fun. The MM itself does a good job of infusing them with flavor, and this seems like more of that goodness.

@Demetrios1453 has made mistakes on posting the Dragon+previews. He posted 2 times the kobold previews, instead of the Hannis Hag and the Slithering Tracker ones:

The newest issue of Dragon+ is out, and it has a preview of Volo's Guide to Monsters, with three new pages we haven't seen before:

Page 55, from Chapter 1, gives us a preview of hag traits/ideals/bonds/flaws, as well as chart for hag names, among other hag lore.

Page 159, from Chapter 3, details the annis hag.

Page 191, from Chapter 3, details the slithering tracker.

Having personality choices at the ready is a brilliant stroke. Even the best DM can struggle to make a monster a unique part of the world. This will enhance roleplaying for everyone and adds mystery---what is this particular creature going to do? Besides just "evil." I would buy a companion to the MM full of such personality generating aids!

Definetly need to use that slithering tracker at some point. Nasty little bugger and if my 4e experience with stirges is any indication, that "Damage Transference" is going to cause my players fits... which makes me cackle maniacally
