The Monster's Corner

Stories Through Inhuman Eyes

This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.

Description

An all original anthology from some of todays hottest supernatural writers, featuring stories of monsters from the monster's point of view.

In most stories we get the perspective of the hero, the ordinary, the everyman, but we are all the hero of our own tale, and so it must be true for legions of monsters, from Lucifer to Mordred, from child-thieving fairies to Frankenstein's monster and the Wicked Witch of the West. From our point of view, they may very well be horrible, terrifying monstrosities, but of course they won't see themselves in the same light, and their point of view is what concerns us in these tales. Demons and goblins, dark gods and aliens, creatures of myth and legend, lurkers in darkness and beasts in human clothing…these are the subjects of The Monster's Corner. With contributions by Lauren Groff, Chelsea Cain, Simon R. Green, Sharyn McCrumb, Kelley Armstrong, David Liss, Kevin J. Anderson, Jonathan Maberry, and many others.

From Publishers Weekly

Aug 08, 2011 – Spotlighting monsters of all varieties (other than the explicitly proscribed zombies and vampires), Golden (The New Dead) assembles a solid variety of tales. The best is Gary Braunbeck s gonzo, metafictional And You Still Wonder Why Our First Impulse Is to Kill You. Simultaneously hilarious and heartbreaking, it gradually transforms into elegant musing on the nature of monsters in fiction even as the prose becomes deliberately chaotic. Other highlights include Tom Piccirilli s The Cruel Thief of Rosy Infants, an intriguing faerie changeling tale; Sarah Pinborough s The Screaming Room, a nice twist on the gorgon myth; Jeff Strand s Specimen 313, an effectively funny tale of love and plant monsters; and Tananarive Due s The Lake and David Liss s The Awkward Age, both of which explore the nature of sexual predators. The few stories that miss the mark are well outnumbered, and readers will appreciate the diverse monsters, including radioactive giants and an Indian Rakshasi.
