"In the Rue Morgue, the jungles of Tarzan, the fables of Aesop, and outer space, the apes in these seventeen fantastic tales boldly go where humans dare not. With a foreword from the director of Rise of the Planet of the Apes, this provocative anthology delves into our cultural fascination with - and dread of - our simian cousins. These classic stories explore the lighter and darker sides of apes, mirroring our own deepest desires and anxieties. "Evil Robot Monkey" introduces a disgruntled chimp implanted with a chip that makes him cleverer than both his cohort and humans alike. In "Murders in the Rue Morgue," a murder mystery unravels with the discovery of a hair that does not appear quite human. Merging steampunk with slapstick, "The Ape-Box Affair" has a not-so-ordinary orangutan landing on Earth in a spherical flying ship--where he is promptly mistaken for an alien. King Kong sets a terrible example with booze and Barbie dolls in "Godzilla's 12-Step Program." If you've ever wondered what makes humans different from apes, soon you'll be asking yourself, is it less than we think?."-- Provided by publisher.
