Transformation as Metaphor

Best of Apex Magazine: Volume 1 - Ursula Vernon, Lesley Conner, Jason Sizemore

An interesting collection of stories from the online science fiction/fantasy magazine http://www.apex-magazine.com. All the stories in the collection feature transformation in one form or another: animal to human, human to alien hybrid, human to robot, human to online data, human to chocolate, etc. Most of the transformations have metaphorical elements, such as in "If You Were a Dinosaur, My Love" but a few are straight up fantasy. The opening story "Jackalope Wives" works as both fantasy/horror and as feminist metaphor.
