The Ogre's Wife: Fairy Tales for Grownups by Richard Parks

A World Fantasy Award finalist in its print edition, THE OGRE'S WIFE is the first story collection by Richard Parks. The introduction was written by award-winning master fantasist Parke Godwin, who has followed the author's career from first bloom until today. All but one of the stories have been previously published in either magazines (mostly Realms of Fantasy) or anthologies. That one, Doing Time in the Wild Hunt, is original to the collection. Also included in this electronic edition is an appendix containing the author's notes on each story.

"[It] is an absolute treasure of a collection, one that I know I will return to again and again." -- Charles De Lint in Magazine of Fantasy and Science Fiction, July, 2002

I had just read Black Kath's Daughter and thought it was great, so I got this one and it's just as good. I'll read anything this guy writes.

I finished this easily one afternoon and evening, taking time out between each story to do small chores and odd jobs. The stories are so readable that one is tempted to gobble them like popcorn, and they're too good to be treated that way. You have to let each one sink in before going on to the next. Also, they're all so different in style and content that it's best to come to each one after a short intermission, ready for a different experience. A really fine collection. I'd like to read more by him.
