Monstrous Affections by Kelly Link and Gavin J. Grant

$26.00

“Some of these tales are moving, others terrifying. . . . Long after the last page is turned, these tales will linger in readers’ brains, in their closets, under their beds, and in the shadows.” — School Library Journal (starred review)



Predatory kraken that sing; 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. Here you’ll find an architect of hell on earth, spectral boy toys, a Maori force of nature, and a landform that claims lives. Fifteen top voices in speculative fiction explore the intersection of fear and love in a haunting, at times hilarious, darkly imaginative volume.
