The little match girl goes pyrotechnic, while the princess on the glass hill has a female companion, and don’t even ask about the big, bad, wolf. This is another out-of-the-box collection of reimagined fairy tales written by multiple award winning authors. Garth Nix, Charlie Jane Anders, Margo Lanagan, and Jeffrey Ford, are among the long and impressive list of contributing authors. The eighteen tales range from hilarious to horrific, from sci-fi to fantasy to western to traditional fairy tale, most of which are definitely for adults. Even if I didn’t quite understand some of them, I enjoyed all.
