Colorful and original characters set in fun and adventure-filled plots with surprising twists and turns! "Bad-Ass Faeries" delivers top-notch entertainment! --Wendy Webb, author of "Mean Cuisine"

"Bad-Ass Faeries" kicks ass and entertains you completely. This ain't your Mamas bedtime stories--these faeries rock your world! --Bruce Gehweiler, editor of Crypto-Critters

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This Faerie book isn't your usual batch of `fairy tales'. This anthology is full of hard hitting, hard-core faeries that take no prisoners. None of the faeries in this book are the Disney `Tinkerbell' variation. The book itself if broken into the following five sections: Warrior Faeries, Outlaw Faeries, Wild Faeries, Street Faeries, and Faeries Noir. In this faerie book you will find faeries both noble and foul. There are cyborg faeries, native American faeries, assassin faeries, street smart faeries, and detective faeries. If you like faeries, or just like to read a good story or something a little different, then this book is for you.

A very nice collection of Farie Short Stories; trully encompasing not just the Whimsy of Faries, but also the depth of emotion and adventure in what all too often is seen as only children's worlds... These certainly do not stop at that; they take you to where you never thought Faries could go, but should have suspected they did.

I bought this book because I thought the idea behind it was enchantingly tantalising, and the cover art was appealing.

Then I read it. Oh, dear! Perhaps I should have realised sooner that it was going to be a little sub-par, particularly in the editing department, based on the fact that I could see two errors on the book's cover alone, three if I counted the fact that 'Bad-Ass' is hyphenated on the front cover (an acceptable spelling, though non-conventional) whereas it is spelt as one word (badass) in many places in the text inside the book, which shows grammatical inconsistency. Finding fault with that is up for debate. However, most of the grammatical flaws in the book are beyond debate -- they exist, they're major, and there are LOTS of them. Four people take credit for editing this book, yet quantity does not seem to equate to quality. Almost none of the editing seems to be up to the usual professional standard -- sadly, the spelling and grammar are of about the standard usually only seen in 'vanity published' books, of which this may well be one, if I'm to judge the book by its cover.

Some of the stories were okay. A few were good. Many were dull and flawed and forgettable. A few were spectacularly bad, even laughable. This struck me as an anthology where everyone who contributed a story was included, regardless of how good or bad their stories were, kind of like when a classroom of school kids or a small town community amateur writing group put together a book of short stories.

My compliments go to: the illustrator, for their appealing pictures, and to the authors Keith R.A. DeCandido, Jeff Lyman, and John Sunseri, who rose above the murk and delivered entertaining, relatively well-crafted stories.
