'What does evolution mean in the 21st century? Marking the 150th anniversary of Charles Darwin's Origin of Species, The Tangled Bank is bursting with over 100,000 words of stories, poetry, and artwork about evolution. Stories range from science ﬁction, fantasy, and horror to fairy tales and literary ﬁction. An international line up of more than 40 contributors includes Sean Williams, Brian Stableford, Patricia Russo, Carlos Hernandez, Christopher Green, and Bruce Boston. Sometimes dark, sometimes whimsical, but shot through with wonder, The Tangled Bank explores the universe revealed by Darwin's insights.'
