9781616960858: The Apes of Wrath

In the Rue Morgue, the jungles of Tarzan, the fables of Aesop, and outer space, the apes in these seventeen fantastic tales boldly go where humans dare not. Including a foreword from Rupert Wyatt, the director of Rise of the Planet of the Apes, this provocative anthology delves into our fascination with and fear of our simian cousins.

Evil Robot Monkey” introduces a disgruntled chimp implanted with a chip that makes him cleverer than both his cohort and humans alike. In Murders in the Rue Morgue,” a murder mystery unravels with the discovery of a hair that does not appear quite human. Merging steampunk with slapstick, The Ape-Box Affair” has a not-so-ordinary orangutan landing on Earth in a spherical flying ship where he is promptly mistaken for an alien. King Kong sets a terrible example with booze and Barbie dolls in Godzilla’s 12-Step Program.”

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.”
