A 21st CENTURY BESTIARY

The magic of bestiaries, or dictionaries of mythological creatures, has been captivating the human imagination since ancient times. Now, Stone Skin Press brings a fresh take on these compendiums of the fantastic with its latest anthology—Gods, Memes and Monsters. Featuring over sixty authors, this stunning international volume offers entries and short stories that range from the horrific to the humorous. The bestiary shed lights on familiar beasts that are coping in our modern era, including gorgons, minotaurs, and mantichores. It also introduces newly discovered creatures such as meme mosquitoes, trashsquatches, and urbantelopes that are thriving in the cyber age.

The authors include:

Chad Fifer * Charlene Challenger * Chris Lackey * Dave Gross * David Barnes * Dennis Bolen * Dennis Detwiller * Ed Greenwood * Ekaterina Sedia * Emily Care Boss * Gareth Hanrahan * Greg Stafford * Greg Stolze * James Wallis * Jean-Francois Chenier * Jerry Schaefer * Jim Webster * JM Frey * John Tynes * Jonathan Blum * Jonathan Howard * Julia Ellingboe * Kathryn Kuitenbrower * Kenneth Hite * Kurt Zubatiuk * Kyla Ward * Laura Lush * Molly Tanzer * Monica Valentinelli * Myna Wallin * Nancy Kilpatrick * Nick Mamatas * Patrick O'Duffy * Peter Ball * Peter Chiykowski * Peter Dubé * Peter Freeman * Richard Dansky * Robin Laws * Rupert Booth *Sam Agro * Sandra Kasturi * Silvia Moreno-Garcia *

...and many, many more.

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
