In DAW anthology, classic fairy tales are examined and retold from a perspective different than the original telling. Often this leads to cleaver, imaginative stories that have the power to make you laugh, cringe, and most of all¿ want to read more. A full list of authors and stories include *** Spinning a Yarn by Lody Lynn Nye *** How I Came to Marry a Herpetologist by Nina Kirki Hoffman *** Puck in Boots, the True Story by Connie Hirsch *** Case #285B by Esther Friesner *** The Beanstalk Incident by Jane Lindskold *** Gilly the Goose Girl by Nancy Springer *** Fifi¿s Tale by Alan Rogers *** Thy Golden Stair by Richard Parks *** True Love by Fahnestock and Custer *** Savior by John Helfers *** Wolf at the Door by Lupida Shepard *** The Castle and Jack by Tim Waggoner *** Baron Boscov¿s Bast*rd by Jacey Bedford *** The Emperor¿s New (and Improved) Clothes by Leslie What *** One Fairy Tale, Hard Boiled by P. Andrew Miller *** Feeding Frenzy by Josepha Sherman *** A Leg Up by Gary Braunbeck *** and Mrs. Myrtle Montegrand vs. The Vegetable Stalker/Slayer by Elizabeth Ann Scarborough The stories included are solid and entertaining. My run away favorite is True Love by Fahnestock and Custer. It¿s a real eye opener with a shock ending so good I immediately forced the book upon my friend and made her read it. The only reason this anthology gets 4 stars instead of 5 is that many of the same fairy tales are revisited time and again. With the wide variety of world myth a greater amount of stories could have been retold. Also, if this book is a personal favorite, check out Rotten Relations also edited by Denise Little for DAW. It¿s also a retelling of fairy tales from the `villains¿ point of view, and a highly entertaining book.
