From author T. Kingfisher comes a collection of fairy-tale retellings for adults. By turns funny and dark, sad and lyrical, this anthology draws together in one volume such stories as "The Wolf and the Woodsman," "Loathly," and "Bluebeard's Wife," along with an all-new novella, "Boar & Apples."
Author's Note: Many of these stories have appeared in various forms on the author's blog.


  • This is really good.

    (Confession: I didn't buy it on iTunes. But now I can read it on iBooks or Marvin. So.) This anthology is primarily re-tellings of fairy tales... With twists. Very good twists. The twists aren't there just for Being A Twist, but to give depth. To play with "what if." Sample if you don't already know "T. Kingfisher's" work, but it's an insta-buy for me & I was not disappointed. The Intro alone is excellent.
