Synopsis

A Dazzling Collection Anthropomorphic Tales! Here's a book everyone has been waiting for far too long, a delightful, science fictional updating of a very old favorite, Ovid Revisited. Only artist Brian Brookwell, author of His Merwife and Other Metamorphic Fantasies, could have unleashed the imagination to pen this story of geneticist James Westland, who discovers how to free people to live out their wildest dreams by transforming the human body into almost any desired shape. Soon the good Dr. has more clients than he can handle, as people beg to become human fish, bats, canines, crabs, bears, and hornets, and some go even further, transforming themselves into plants and furniture. The possibilities are mind-bending but Brookwell keeps the focus on the human, taking us into the lives of these new "transspecies" individuals who undergo shape changes rather than sex changes. He shows us the motivations that drive them and the satisfactions and frustrations they encounter in their new lives. The stories in Ovid Revisited, of course, based on Brookwell's wonderful images of people metamorphosed into various real and mythic creatures which can be found at furnation.com/MermaidsTail.
