Go To

"So here is a book of fantastic creatures as old as primitive human dreams and as new as the next century's headlines, as familiar as folktales yet as strange as science fiction — and all for your pleasure."
Isaac Asimov, introduction

An Anthology by Isaac Asimov, Martin H. Greenberg, and Charles G Waugh, first published in 1981. The eight stories herein are stories of Speculative Fiction, tales from Earth and beyond, creatures that don't exist as far as science knows, but science itself admits there are worlds it doesn't yet know.
