Imagine a world where mad science exists, as do all the creations thereof. Imagine a United States where talking dogs, zombies, ex-killer robots, sentient crystals, and opera singing silverfish live out their natural lives. As you can expect, few of these beings are able to hold down a 9-5 job and have a house in the suburbs. Most are forced to live on the fringes of society, downtrodden and outcast. In a world such as this, who will rise up to defend and protect these non-human sentient citizens? Welcome to project Skin Horse, the top secret (although woefully understaffed and underfunded) welfare agency chartered to seek out and give aid and protection to those who would otherwise be ignored, or perhaps chased with torches and pitchforks, by the human world we take for granted.

From official release/information:

From back of book: Somewhere in this great nation of ours is Project Skin Horse, an overworked, underfunded secret agency dedicated to assisting America's nonhuman citizens. The receptionist is a clockwork robot, the project head is a swarm of bees, the field team consists of Sweetheart the talking dog and her faithful zombie Unity, and Dr. Tip Wilkin, the lone human staffer, feels he can only do his job properly in high heels.

They're the shadow government. They're here to help. Please go easy on them.
