Tarzan. Odysseus. Zorro. Your favorite characters come back to life in new and exciting escapades in this must-have anthology.

In this inventive collection, a stellar cast of writers uses classic adventure tales as a launch pad for an eclectic mix of prequels, alternate universes, spin-offs, and total reboots. Imagine Ahab is shipwrecked on an island of cannibals, or Mr. Hyde tells his side of the story, or the scarecrow from Oz struggles with the mystery of his existence. By turns wry and haunting, My Name Was Never Frankenstein upends old territory and classic characters to reclaim them for a new generation.

“Editor Bryan Furuness explains that while this playful collection of 14 short stories by 14 different writers all have similar jumping off points, ‘they jump in different directions.’ The result is, as Furuness says, ‘wild and grand and strange.’” —Bloom Magazine
