    Everyone has that ONE relative┬┐.

    Everyone has that one relative they can¿t stand. This anthology is based on the premise of those relatives of literary characters we know and love. Many of the stories are written from the perspective of the relatives in fairly tales that are `the bad guy¿. Most of these were especially entertaining. A full list of the stories includes¿. *** Home for the Holidays by Pauline Alma *** With a Face Only a Mother Could Love by Jenn Reese *** Switched by Nina Kiriki Hoffman *** The Trick of the Tricksters Tricked by Josepha Sherman *** Thrice Told by Von Jocks *** Dynasty by Bill McCray *** Serpent¿s Tooth by Susan and Bradley Sinor *** Mirror, Mirror by Jacey Bedford *** After the Ball by Pamela Luzier *** Peggy Plain by Devon Monk *** Heathcliff¿s Notes by David Bischoff *** Cuckoo¿s Egg by Jody Lynn Nye *** Rapunzel- The True Story by Robert Sheckley *** Among the Stars by Susan Sizemore *** King of Shreds and Patches by P.N. Elrod I found many of these stories to be original and entertaining. ¿Peggy Plain¿ by Devon Monk was especially entertaining with it¿s crime noir style superimposed on the world of nursery rhymes. ¿ King of Shreds and Patches¿ by P.N. Elrord was another stand out tale, this set from the perspective of Claudius in Hamlet. The complaint I had about the collection was too many of the stories overlapped. For instance, Cinderella¿s tale receives several different treatments. With the vast scope of literary characters out there, I wish Denise Little would have encouraged the writers to broaden their scopes. Still, this is another highly entertaining, solid anthology by DAW.
