This anthology tackles the challenge of taking classic fairy tales and placing them in a modern setting. Several favorites are remade, Jack and the Bean Stalk, Peter Pan, Little Red Riding Hood, and Aladdin are a few included. Rarely are the stories immediately recognizable, the changing of the characters name and setting often makes this seem like a strait fantasy anthology. Tanya Huff¿s ¿Jack and the BS¿ and Pamela Sargent¿s ¿ Puss in DC¿ are laugh out loud hilarious, and it is worth getting the anthology just for these stories alone. Luckily, they¿re not the only good stories included. Even the weakest of these stories is still darn good. It¿s also worth noting that Bill Willingham, author of the graphic novel series ¿Fables¿ has a prose story in this anthology. If this anthology is really your cup of tea, it¿s worth it to try some of Willingham¿s Fable¿s books, which is where this anthology took it¿s inspiration. That series also deals with classic fairy tale characters placed in the modern setting. Over all, this anthology is another strong, classy book by DAW publishers and Martin Greenberg. Recommended for Fantasy fans, Fairy Tales fans, and Anthology lovers.
