Summary (From the publisher):

Not since the heyday of the medieval bestiary compilers has such a menagerie of astonishing creatures been conceived by the human imagination.

A mozart bird, a beethoven beetle and other strange adaptations are conceived by a professor bent on preserving civilization's highest achievements. There is a six-legged hurkle that thrives on DDT and inherits the earth. There are teddy bears who have never seen Earth, but dress and talk like TV cowboys. And there are blue giraffes, gnurrs, and hokas also inhabiting these nine fantastic tales.

With an Introduction by Robert Silverberg.
