Fantastic Companions is an anthology of nineteen original short stories, chosen to illustrate the use of anthropomorphism in fantasy. Individual stories range from more traditional techniques, such as talking animals, to more unusual, such as the personification of constellations, ancient gods, and story itself. Aimed at both trade and educational markets, this diverse anthology is an amazing look at how writers deal with what makes us truly human, through the lens of imagination.
