Description - Monstrous Affections by Gavin J. Grant
Fifteen top voices in speculative fiction explore the intersection of fear and love in a haunting, at times hilarious, darkly imaginative volume. Predatory kraken that sing with and for - their kin; band members and betrayed friends who happen to be demonic; harpies as likely to attract as repel. Welcome to a world where humans live side by side with monsters, from vampires both nostalgic and bumbling to an eight-legged alien who makes tea. Here you'll find mercurial forms that burrow into warm fat, spectral boy toys, a Maori force of nature, a landform that claims lives, and an architect of hell on earth. Through these - and monsters that defy categorization - some of today's top young-adult authors explore ambition and sacrifice, loneliness and rage, love requited and avenged ...and the boundless potential for connection, even across extreme borders.
