Editorial Reviews

Review

I love a good fractured fairy tale, and Beauty and His Beast is one. As I was reading, I couldn't help but appreciate that if there were ever a time honored and oft reimagined story that translates well from historical fantasy to science fiction, it's this one. --Lisa, The Novel Approach

Suffice to say, this was a really sweet fairy tale with the added interesting sci-fi tidbits that will make you want to take a spin on the ship or have your own S1N and VAL in your life. Definitely recommend this fairy tale delight!--
JustJen, The Blogger Girls

I loved how clever it was and found the entire experience to be stimulating on many levels.Well done to Bey Deckard on this adorably naughty, story.
--Fiona, Books Laid Bare Boys

I was impressed with the sci-fi/fantasy world building alongside the romance. This spin comes complete with very likeable characters -from Juniper to Marrex, to S1N and VAL. It's strong writing that didn't overplay the story or location at any stage. That there is no magical prince appearing because of love, rather a visibly happier individual, really made this version so, so right. --Kazza, On Top Down Under

I can't honestly think of a version of this story I haven't enjoyed, but with Bey Deckard's imagination and flair the result is captivating.
--Trio, Kimmers' Erotic Book Banter

From the Author

Once upon a time, long long ago, someone gave me an illustrated copy of Beauty and the Beast as a present. The story was a retelling of a retelling: this was Deborah Apy's version retelling the one written by Jeanne-Marie Leprince de Beaumont in 1756, which was a retelling of the original story, La Belle et la Bête written by Gabrielle-Suzanne Barbot de Villeneuve in 1740. I loved the story and the illustrations by Michael Hague really intrigued me--they were creepy and dark and fantastic. I loved his images of the horned, shaggy-albeit-well-dressed, angst-ridden Beast. Interestingly, we never get to see the miraculous transformation of the prince... The final painting in the book is of Beauty finding the Beast dying of heartbreak in his rose garden.
Years later, I would see the Disney version and, though the story isn't all that similar to the original, I liked the comedic aspects of it. However, I was disappointed with the Beast's transformation--call me strange, but I actually preferred him as he was.

Beauty and His Beast is a story that's been percolating in my brain for a few years now. It's a mashup of the original stories, the Disney version, and bit of another book that has nothing to do with Beauty and the Beast, but was my absolute favourite when I was really young: Disney's The Black Hole: A Spaceship Adventure for Robots.
This story is not dark, not very long, and not particularly serious--just my silly take on a much loved, oft-retold fairy tale... in space.
