Table of Contents: MONSTROUS AFFECTIONS: AN ANTHOLOGY OF BEASTLY TALES Edited by Kelly Link and Gavin J. Grant
Here’s the table of contents for the upcoming anthology Monstrous Affections: An Anthology of Beastly Tales edited by Kelly Link and Gavin J. Grant.
First, the book description:
Fifteen top voices in speculative fiction explore the intersection of fear and love in a haunting, at times hilarious, darkly imaginative volume.
Predatory kraken that sing with—and for—their kin; band members and betrayed friends who happen to be demonic; harpies as likely to attract as repel. Welcome to a world where humans live side by side with monsters, from vampires both nostalgic and bumbling to an eight-legged alien who makes tea. Here you’ll find mercurial forms that burrow into warm fat, spectral boy toys, a Maori force of nature, a landform that claims lives, and an architect of hell on earth. Through these and a few monsters that defy categorization, some of today’s top young-adult authors explore ambition and sacrifice, loneliness and rage, love requited and avenged, and the boundless potential for connection, even across extreme borders.
