Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

The fourth book in Datlow and Windling's anthology series of well-known and obscure fairy tales retold by contemporary writers, this collection features 19 short stories and two poems about Snow White, the fisherman and his wife, Hansel and Gretel, Rapunzel, and others. Writers like Joyce Carol Oates, Pat Murphy, Don Webb, and Jane Yolen put interesting twists to the sanitized Victorian versions we have, proving that these tales, along with the originals, aren't really for children. Highly recommended for fantasy and short story collections.

From Booklist

Datlow and Windling strike again, with a fourth set of fantasy tales that aim to bring out the subtexts of classic fairy tales. The stories are uniformly well crafted, and their authors range from distinguished names like Jane Yolen and Esther Friesner to comparative newcomers, such as Anne Bishop. Many of them also feature curious revisions (e.g., the stepmother here saves Snow White from a gruesomely abusive father, and the seven dwarfs are seven wise women) and intense and lengthy emotional outpourings worthy of an encounter group. In the main, they draw on only a limited range of the body of European folklore and let the rest of world folklore be. Plainly, there is now an audience for this sort of thing, but how many of the stories in all four collections will remain readable once the social issues they address become passe? Roland Green
