Overview

What if animals could talk? Or communicate telepathically? What if they evolved to become something more than human, or we made ourselves more like them?



Storytellers have asked these questions from the dawn of human history to the present day. An Anthropomorphic Century showcases the answers to some of these questions from the last century.



Features stories ranging from 1909 to 2008, including the talents of Peter S. Beagle, Philip K. Dick, Michael H. Payne, Phil Geusz, Renee Carter Hall, and more.
