Editorial Reviews:

Once upon a time, fairy tales
were for children . . . But no longer.

You hold in your hands a volume of wonders -- magical tales of trolls and ogres, of bewitched princesses and kingdoms accursed, penned by some of the most acclaimed fantasists of our day. But these are not bedtime stories designed to usher an innocent child gently into a realm of dreams. These are stories that bite -- lush and erotic, often dark and disturbing mystical journeys through a phantasmagoric landscape of distinctly adult sensibilities . . . where there is no such thing as "happily ever after."

Summary: Inspiring!
Comment: Beautiful. Dark. Haunting. These fairy tales are going to stick in that subconscious, so be ready to dream! Datlow and Windling conquer a genre.

Summary: Not Free SF Reader
Comment: This book is perhaps somewhat responsible for what seems like more fairy tales having been written in the last 15 years or so than in the history of the known universe prior.

That being said, some decent stuff here, if not particularly memorable to me personally. It was certainly worth a look for some stuff that is definitely not designed for the little kids.

Summary: Unique retellings!
Comment: This book is full of unique twists to some popular fairy tales. In my opinion - the best story in the book is the first story - which is also the books title. Some of the stories fell a little short for me. But overall - some good reading.

Some of the scenes are a bit erotic and some just plain sickening, but that is true to the world we live in - and true to human nature.

Summary: not for the faint hearted
Comment: I am dissapointed but not surprised at the bad reviews for this book and for the all the fairy tale collections compiled by Ellen Datlow. These are not fairy tales with "fairies". If you're expecting a dirty version of Cinderella look elsewhere. Many of these stories are about present times, real people, and current situations. Child abuse, molestation, rape, obesity, murder, slavery. These are the things the Ellen Datlow collections are comprised of. Most of these stories are not "light fare". They are deep and sometimes bloody, even when there is no blood to be seen. They are indeed fairytales though because the exist in the half-light time where horror exist simultaneously with beauty. The part of the car crash that is like a flower in bloom. If you like "The Bloody Chamber" you'll like these. If your looking for fairies, rent Disney.

Summary: On the dark side
Comment: I was rather amuzed by the different plots and endings given to the well-known tales that we learned as children. These tales are not intended for those who like the "happily ever after" stories but instead for those who opt for the darker side of things not usually discussed and expected. If you like romantic tales that have a predictably happy ending and make you smile and say "awww - how sweet"....these stories are not for you!
