Hags, Sirens, and Other Bad Girls of Fantasy based on 0 ratings. 2 reviews.
This twenty story anthology focuses on just what the title states: the bad females of fantasy and fairy tales. Normally stories containing Pandora or Isis, etc. they play the villainess secondary character in this collection these notorious bad girls play the lead role so the audience sees how they perceive their persona, public image, and the encounters that make characters like Cinderella¿s stepmother become the connotation of parental abuse. Though for the most part well written, much of the bite of being the malevolent one is taken away as several of the ladies insist they are misunderstood. Still fantasy fans who enjoy their villains to be hardened women will find this compilation of all new stories fun and will follow the frolics of these fatal fatale females mostly of Greek mythos.----------------------- Harriet Klausner
This book wasn¿t too thrilling. It had lots of short stories, which can be fun to read, but once again it seems as if these people have no editors. One story even had the main characters name spelled wrong for several pages, right in the middle of the story, after which the author went back to the original spelling. Another story had a then where it should have had a than (this, to me, is an incredibly annoying error).This book had one redeeming story, Dust, about the tooth fairy, how she was hooked on fairy dust, and how she sledgehammered teeth out of a young girl after she learned the fairy¿s true name and kept calling on her. Funny stuff.
