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. Including a foreword from Rupert Wyatt, the director of Rise of the Planet of the Apes , this provocative anthology delves into our fascination with and fear of our simian cousins.

"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 terribleexample 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 even less than we think?
