Book Description

Death and Pixie Dust!

Once upon a time, a mysterious plague beset a quiet village in the woods—a plague of the walking dead. Suddenly, beloved fairy tale characters are thrown into a world of stark violence and horror: Cinderella is worked to death before the ball, Pinocchio is made from children's corpses, and Little Red Riding Hood finds more than wolves in the forest.

Surreal and full of black humor, Zombie Fairy Tales is a genre-bending narrative of a world on the brink of apocalypse, a world with no happily ever afters.

Collected here are all 12 original Zombie Fairy Tales, plus a new 13th tale exclusive to this collection!

5.0 out of 5 stars Master Pieces April 20, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I am thoroughly happy I bought the complete collection. I had considered only purchasing the Red Riding Hood one because it's my favorite fairytale but decided to buy the complete collection and WOW. These stories are twisted and delightful. It is amazing how many of the classic stories from my childhood got twisted on their heads. Whenever I finished reading one story I could not stop and just had to move onto the next to see what was going to happen. One thing I found wonderful that there was no magic whatsoever, instead everything happened due to a series of events involving the characters and the plague. Another is that characters from other stories make an appearance and you have that moment of realization on who they are. These stories get very dark and gruesome, which I absolutely loved about it. When I was reading a certain story within the collection I was having lunch at the time and this is the first time I had issues keeping my food down from something I read, which is a difficult thing to accomplish because I'm a criminal justice major, I read and see all sorts of disturbing stories and such and had no issues before during meal times, but some of the scenes in these stories....nothing compares to the twisted gruesomeness of some scenes, in my book a couple of specific ones ((in the two Cinderella stories and Red Riding Hood)).I only had one small issue and it was the placement of everything, because its hard to picture Sleepy Hollow as part of these kingdoms, but that is just a minor detail. I do not recommend this book for people who are easily disturbed, grossed out, and especially not children. However if you love zombies, gore, humor, revenge, and twisted stories, this is PERFECT for you.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderfully grisly retelling of favorite fairy tales February 7, 2015
By J C Lee
Format:Kindle Edition
I love fairy tales so the title immediately caught my attention. I thought why not, this might be interesting. I started reading and WOW.
This collection of tales take the original tales we all know and put a wonderful twist to them. Yes the stories are dark and grim (haha pun intended) but fascinating to read. I couldn't stop reading I enjoyed them so much.
The first tale starts with the creation of Pinocchio and introduces the idea that a plague has afflicted the town where Geppetto lives. And so it begins...... The following tales focus on other characters, such as Cinderella, Hansel and Gretel, and Ariel, but they all tie in together as the stories unfold. Just amazing.
This fairy tale world is filled with violence and gore; the main characters struggle to survive and overcome as their stories take grisly twists to the originals. While filled with the horrors of zombies the stories still contain bits of whimsy, yearning, and the fulfillment of dreams.
Kudos to the author. What an amazing imagination!! I loved all the little nods to peripheral characters (JH and the crab) and the creative way that some of the characters came to be who they were (Hook and the huntsman/wolves). While staying close to the original stories, he truly made-or should I say remade-them his own. I highly recommend this collection to anyone who loves fairy tales.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fairy tales make a LOT more sense with zombies! January 8, 2015
By Mary B
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
An awesomely well developed series of revised fairy tales! Although each story can be read as a stand-alone, they're much better in one collection. Well-written and wonderfully edited, these fairy tales make a lot more sense with zombies added. Several of the characters recur in other stories, and they are more developed than the backstories of the Disney tales. I love how Kevin Richey uses specific details from the Disney stories (eg, Ursula's purple dress becoming tentacle-like) but gives them a practical explanation. I highly recommend this book to fans of fairy tales, or zombies, or just well crafted fiction. I've already started purchasing other work by this author.

4.0 out of 5 stars Delightfully Twisted March 5, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
Author Kevin Richey has done an excellent job of corrupting fairy tales that we have loved as children into something that will thrill us as adults. This is the entire collection of his Zombie Fairy Tales woven from tales such as Cinderella, Pinocchio, The Little Mermaid, and The Little Match Girl just to name a few.

All of the tales can be enjoyed separately or read in succession. Each one has something different to offer but all are well written and unique. They definitely keep your attention from start to finish.

If you love a good horror story, especially the zombie genre, then you should pick up this collection. All of the stories within are great reads, but due to the ick factor and violence of some of them I would say these are definitely not for kids.

5.0 out of 5 stars Dark and well written horror December 27, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
I didn't really read the description but picked this book up for the title. I just assumed I'd be reading some parody stories. Just a couple pages in that belief was long gone as I read story after story of horrible things happening to good people, horrible things happening to bad people, and horrible people coming out on top.

Some very clever interpretations of old fairy tales and some modern stories. I didn't expect The Little Mermaid to be a young woman who drowned in a swamp who's only friend is a taxidemist's crab but there you have it.

5.0 out of 5 stars They are NOT like the funny July 5, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
If there were more stars, it would get them all :D
Beware though, it can get rough, Cinderella was definitely hard to get through. They are NOT like the funny, slightly gross kind of stories.
pinnochio is made up of body parts stolen from the graves.....etc.
But I am loving them!!! There is a morality to them!! Karma, the villans get what they deserve. You find yourself smiling and going YES!!! :)
I couldn't put it down!! Get the collection, each story incorporated the ones before....even foreshadowing ones to come. Wish there were more now :) Happy reading!! <3
