We are all of us monsters. We are none of us monsters.Through the work of twentysix writers, emerging to awardwinning and masters of their craft, THE HUMANITY OF MONSTERS plumbs the depths of humane monsters, monstrous humans, and the interstices between:Monstrous heralds of change, the sight of whom only children can survive.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from The Humanity of Monsters although there were more stories here that I didn't like than ones I did, some of the good ones were very good indeed, so I'd still recommend grabbing this, especially if you can get it from a library, and cherry-picking
