Overview

Once upon a time, fairy tales were for children—but not anymore.
 
In Snow White, Blood Red, some of today's most acclaimed fantasy authors present stories that evoke the spirit of classic fairy tales, but that are decidedly for grown-ups. Here you will find magical tales of enchantment and delight, but also stories with a dark, sinister edge in which heroes and heroines are flawed and fallible, fairies and fey beings pursue their own wicked schemes, love lists toward lust, words and actions are weapons that draw blood, and not everyone lives happily ever after. Passionate, erotic, violent, and brutally honest, these stories simmer with emotions that their disarmingly charming fantasies can barely contain.
 
Edited by award-winning editors Ellen Datlow and Terri Windling, and featuring the work of Neil Gaiman, Charles de Lint, Gahan Wilson, Patricia A. McKillip, Steve and Melanie Tem, and fifteen other leading fantasists, Snow White, Blood Red is a connoisseur's collection of fairy tales that have outgrown the nursery.

This provocative collection of magical tales explores the darker side of classic fairy tales. Penned by some of the most acclaimed fantasists of our day, here are tales of trolls, ogres, bewitched princesses and cursed kingdoms.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
The dark and shadowed aspects of well-known folk stories and fairy tales are explored in updated retellings by such writers as Gahan Wilson, Tanith Lee, Jane Yolen and Leonard Rysdyk in this anthology by the team that also compiles The Year's Best Fantasy and Horror volumes. In Esther M. Freisner's ``Puss,'' one of the finest contributions, an ancient being dons boots with his feline guise to discharge a blood debt to a hated and brutal master. Patricia A. McKillip's ``The Snow Queen'' tells of a young woman who finds her real identity while her bored husband and their sophisticated friends nearly lose their souls to the eponymous enchantress. In a lighter vein, Caroline Stevermer and Ryan Edmonds write about an irritated stepmother who turns a baseball-mad family of boys into ``The Springfield Swans.'' Blanche, a witch's daughter raised in isolation in Susan Wade's ``Like a Red, Red Rose,'' finds tragedy when she reaches out for love. In ``I Shall Do Thee Mischief in the Woods,'' Kathe Koja shows what Little Red Riding Hood really was doing on her way to her grandmother's. Some of these tales are enchanting; some are horrifying; most, like the originals, offer insight into human nature. (Jan.)
Candace Smith
Before Perrault, Andersen, and Disney got hold of fairy tales, they were a darker, earthier lot. With an eye to re-creating this older spirit, editors Datlow and Windling have collected a batch of stories that weave familiar plots and themes into fresh, adult tales of horror, erotic fantasy, and occasional humor. In "Stalking Beans," for instance, Jack leaves his faithful wife behind in order to climb the beanstalk and seduce the giant's wife. "Snow-Drop" is a sensuous tale of a discontented wife who lures a young woman away from her circus act with seven dwarves and into her enchanted house, while the title character in "Little Red" leads unsuspecting men home to be the main course for dinner at Grandma's. Such prominent fantasy writers as Charles de Lint, Tanith Lee, Jane Yolen, and Patricia McKillip contribute their magic to this provocative collection.

    Completely Enrapturing!

    I loved this-after i finished it I promptly read all of these editors' other compilations. It appealed enormously to me, and I love the wild woodsey feel of these story collections.

    Enchanting

    This is a great collection of adult fairy tales. Twists on Snow White, Rapunzel, The Frog Prince, Red Riding Hood, and more are very entertaining and hauntingly written. A must for the grown-up fairy tale lover. ***Again, please note, these tales are not for children!***

    Don't waste your time or money

    Unless you are really 'artsy', don't bother reading this book. It is just plain weird. I was expecting stories that you could actually follow. I love fantasy, horror and science fiction. But these stories (save a couple) were poorly written with bad endings. I was disappointed.

    A must read!

    A captivating experience, shredding the veil we were raised to believe when we were children. A beautiful reincarnation of tales under their once true form. If you always wanted to know what faerie tales were like before they were altered, this is one title that will shed plenty of light.

    I Also Recommend:

    disturbing and perverse

    Don't get me wrong the stories are well written but I hate it when the term "adult" is used to mean perverse. There are plenty of good "adult" stories that don't have to resort to child molestation, repeated child abuse, etc etc. I even agree that those are subjects that need to be told too, as a society we shouldn't close our eyes to the victims rather than facing our problems but these fairy tales are less about teaching a moral societal message and rather just end up being disturbing. More disturbing than I really needed. For good "adult" fairy tales I recommend Fairy Tale Lust edited by Kristina Wright (wonderfully erotic fairytale retellings), Laurell K. Hamilton's Meredith Gentry series which starts with her novel A Kiss of Shadows, or one of my favorites: Juliet Marillier's novel Daughter of the Forest or Robin McKinley's Beauty (which is perfectly appropriate for adults or kids/teens come to think of it). I'll be donating my copy of this to a local used bookstore. Not my cup of tea.
