Featuring more than 60 authors, this stunning volume brings a fresh take on the bestiary, the dictionary of mythological creatures, by imagining how beasts such as gorgons, minotaurs, and mantichores would cope in the modern age. Offering informational entries and short stories, the collection ranges from the horrific to the humorous, reacquaints readers to classic beasts, and introduces the newly discovered, thriving creatures of the cyber age like the meme mosquitoes, trashsquatches, and urbantelopes. From the casino where the griffin has taken up residence, to the gorgon’s new occupation and love interest, to the now happy sphinx who has moved to Manhattan, this bestiary is a unique and contemporary twist on the creatures that have captivated the human imagination since ancient times.
Heather J. Wood was born and raised in Montreal where fish monsters once lived in her bed. She is the author of Fortune Cookie and Roll With It and her short fiction has appeared in anthologies such as In the Dark, I.V. Lounge Nights, and The Lion and the Aardvark. She lives in Toronto, Ontario.
