A Bundle of Fairy Tale Fiction

Here are a few books that have come to my attention in the last month. They're either fairy tales retold or the authors have woven fairy tales into the mood and fabric of the stories.

Click on the titles or the covers for more information about each one.

"When Mermaids Want to Fly"
by Rohini Ramakrishnan
(A retelling of "The Little Mermaid")
"In Sleeping Beauty's Bed: Erotic Fairy Tales"
edited by Mitzi Szereto
"Rosemary and Rue"
by Seanan McGuire
by Cayla Kluver
"The Spindle & Other Lesbian Fairy Tales"
by Carolyn Gage
(Many different tales retold)

by Richard Sala
(This one is a "twisted retelling of Snow White")
The Witch's Guide to Cooking with Children
by Keith McGowan
(A grade school retelling of Hansel and Gretel)
