Publisher's Blurb
Out of his endless ingenuity Man had made the leos, and out of his endless arrogance he now wanted to destroy them. So how, despite their strength of lions and voices of men, could these beautiful animals hope to survive? The answer lay with the fox, Man’s other creation – the one he’d almost overlooked…

Intensely imagined and deeply moving, Beasts is a resonant twentieth century myth of Man and Nature.

JOHN CROWLEY is one of sf’s most profound and sophisticated writers. He made an extraordinary debut in 1975 with his first novel, The Deep, which he followed in 1976 with Beasts. In 1980 he published the classic sf novel Engine Summer and in 1981 won the World Fantasy Award with Little, Big. John Crowley lives in Massachusetts.
