What resides beneath the blankets of snow, under the ripples of water, within the whispers of the wind, and between the husks of trees all across Canada? Creatures, myths and monsters are everywhere...even if we don't always see them. This is a unique and powerful collection of all-new, cross-genre tales that take the reader into real and imagined worlds, ranging from an encounter with the Metis creature Rugaru to trolls dissatisfied with modern life, to the demons who follow us from our parents' countries, and to Anishinaabe myths about the creation of creeks. Eighteen emerging and award-winning authors explore the way we think about and interact with the unnatural - showing how much the stories we create can teach us about what it means to be human.

Authors: Helen Marshall, Renee Salkikar, Nathan Adler, Kate Story, Braydon Beaulieu, Chadwick Ginther, Dominik Parisien, Stephen Michell, Andrew Wilmot, Rati Mehrotra, Rebecca Schaeffer, Delani Valin, Corey Redekop, Angeline Woon, Michal Wojcik, Andrea Bradley, Alex C. Renwick and Andrew Sullivan.
