He is also the recipient of two Anthony awards. Actually, in many ways, these fairy tales are very much in the spirit of the original stories by the Brothers Grimm and Hans Christan Anderson, since the original stories were morality tales designed to scare and warn the populace, (and occasionally entertain). Here, 18 authors bring back that original feeling in their stories.

I read anthologies, as I find them a good way to take out new authors for a test drive. Martin Greenberg edits a lot of anthologies and to my mind, they vary in quality. Jean Rabe is also listed as an editor of this title. The book had a very good selection of well-written stories which all fit the theme well.

My favorite story was by Chris Pierson whose work I was not familar with before reading this story. I will be seeking out more work from this author. I bought the Kindle version and the formatting was okay, although I do wish the table of contents showed the author's names as well as the titles of the stories. This information is included in the acknowledgments, however.

I usually don't read, or like, short stories. But I listened to a presentation by one of the authors, Paul Genesse, in this book, and had to check it out. I need to say that I was pleasantly surprised. This is a fun book. I may have to check out other short stories.

If your penchant for fairy tales leans towards the dark, twisted and morbid, this book is for you. While it is compiled of well-written tales, only one really has a humorous bent to it, and all the others...well, don't. This is not a funny ha-ha book. It is more of a funny bwa-ha-ha-ha book. Hope this helps.

Actually, in many ways, these fairy tales are very much in the spirit of the original stories by the Brothers Grimm and Hans Christan Anderson, since the original stories were morality tales designed to scare and warn the populace, (and occasionally entertain). Here, 18 authors bring back that original feeling in their stories. Some authors went with humor, and some went with the original creepy feel. My favorite stories "Once They Were Seven" by Chris Pierson. If you like your stories on the horror side of life, this is an excellent reimagining of the Snow White mythos. It impressed me enough I would read more by Pierson. "A Charming Murder" by Mary Louise Eklund is also quite good: CSI meets Cinderella with great results. "Capricious Animistic Temper" by Mickey Zucker Reichert is hilarious, and anyone with a cat will like it that much more.

A complete list of the stories and authors (in order) is... *** Waifs by Dennis L. McKiernan ***My Great-Great-Grandma Golda Lockes by Annie Jones ***Once They Were Seven by Chris Pierson *** Capricious Animistic Temper by Mickey Zucker Reichert ***A Charming Murder by Mary Louise Eklund ***Jack and the Genetic Beanstalk by Robert E. Vardeman ***What's in a Name by Kathleen Watness ***No Good Deed by Jody Lynn Nye ***The Red Path by Jim C. Hines ***Lost Child by Stephen D. Sullivan ***Rapunzel Strikes Back by Brendan DuBois ***Revenge of the Little Dance Girl by Paul Genesse ***Clockwork Heart by Ramsey "Tome Wyrm" Lundock ***The Hundred Year Nap by Skip and Penny Williams ***Five Goats and a Troll by Elizabeth A. Vaughan ***Something About Mattresses by Janet Deaver-Pack ***Three Wishes by Kelly Swails ***The Adventure of rge Red Riding Hoods by Michael A. Stackpole

This latest DAW anthology delivers a great set of stories, and it would be well worth spending the money for a great summer read. You won't be disappointed, but as with the original stories, these are more meant for adults than children or young readers.

HIGHEST RECOMMENDATIONS

I actually hate fantasy but love horror, so I was surprised to find i loved this book! Its weird and unusual stories draw you in, interesting and involving. Great read I am going to keep to add to my hundreds of keeper books!

These eighteen entries will remind readers of Rocky and Bullwinkle's Fractured Fairy Tales as the authors take an irrelevant spin on famous stories. Almost all the contributions are excellent with a couple, though well written, disappointingly changing the personalities of the key players without explanation. Fans will enjoy what happens to Snow White after she owns the Prince and the Mirror in Chris Pierson's superb "Once They Were Seven", the witch chasing after violent Hansel and Gretel in "Waifs" by Dennis L. McKiernan and the scary science fiction twister "Jack and the Genetic Beanstalk by Robert E. Vardeman. Overall this is a great collection that pays homage to the brilliant zany minds of Jay Ward and Bill Scott.

GREAT!!!!
