From the jungles of Tarzan to outer space and beyond, the apes in these remarkable tales boldly go where humans dare not. Provocative and fantastical, this clever anthology delves into the cultural fascination with -- and dread of -- humanity's simian cousins. In Evil Robot Monkey" a disgruntled chimp receives an implant that makes him more cunning than his cohort and humans alike; and a murder mystery unravels with the discovery of a hair that does not appear quite human in the classic Poe tale "Murders in the Rue Morgue". Merging steampunk with slapstick "The Ape-Box Affair" has a not-so-ordinary orang-utan landing on Earth in a spherical flying ship -- where he is promptly mistaken for an alien; and Joe R. Lansdale has King Kong setting a terrible example with booze and Barbie dolls in "Godzilla's Twelve-Step Program". Intertwining beloved classics with inventive new writings this collection explores the lighter and darker sides of these furry primates and holds a mirror to man's deepest anxieties and desires."

In Murders in the Rue Morgue,” a murder mystery unravels with the discovery of a hair that does not appear quite human.

If you’ve ever wondered what makes humans different from apes, soon you’ll be asking yourself, is it even less than we think?

Review:

This impressive anthology includes 18 short stories by authors ancient (Aesop) and recent (Karen Joy Fowler, Mary Robinette Kowal), as well as three original articles tracing apes in literature, comics, cinema, and theater.... A powerful exploration of the blurry line between animal and human.”
Publishers Weekly, starred review

Aficionados of apes in literature and film should enjoy this gathering of new and old stories.”
Library Journal

These are all fine additions to any fantasy lover’s library.... Climb up into your tree, peel a banana, and enjoy the treats herein.”
Sci Fi Magazine

An eclectic, enjoyable mix of fiction and nonfiction...”
