Overview

Snow White, Blood Red by Ellen Datlow

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.

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.

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!***

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.

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.

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.
