Overview

Seventy writers from across the creative spectrum bring their modern sensibilities to the classic format of Aesop's 2,500-year-old fables. Zombies, dog-men, and robot wasps mingle with cats, coyotes, and cockroaches. Parables ranging from the punchy to the evocative and the wry to the disturbing explore eternal human foibles, as displaced onto lemmings, trout, and race cars. But beware: in these terse explorations of desire, envy, and power, certitude isn’t always as clear as it looks. Contributors include a variety of award-winning and bestselling authors, such as Ed Greenwood and Richard Scarsbrook, with artwork from hot comics artist Jim Zubkavich and beautiful, eye-catching interior line drawing by Rachel Kahn Market. Additional authors include Robert Jackson Bennett, Jason L. Blair, Jesse Bullington, Ray Fawkes, Matt Forbeck, Dave Gross, Taniah Hershman, Jonathan L. Howard, Stephen Graham Jones, John Kovalic, Kathryn Kuitenbrouwer, Adam Marek, Sandy Petersen, JT Petty, Wena Poon, Ekaterina Sedia, Greg Stafford, and Chuck Wendig.
