Timeless Tales Modernizes Rumpelstiltskin

Hi, fairy tale fans! This is Tahlia from Timeless Tales Magazine. In case you haven't heard yet, we have just released our Rumpelstiltskin issue. It's full of foolish choices, unforeseen consequences, and battles of wits. 

Here are a few highlights showcasing how our authors transformed a goofy little trickster tale into modern narratives:

  • "Tears Seal the Deal" is a retelling set in the Syrian Refugee Crisis
  • "Void" draws a connection between Rumpel's desire for a child and the frustrations of  infertility.
  • "The Early Years" explores how Rumpel learned to spin straw into gold.
  • "The Deal" allows the Miller's Daughter to find some loopholes in Rumpelstiltskin's bargain and shows what happens when she attempts to outwit him.
Here's a look at some of the covers:

These are just a few of the adventures awaiting you inside our latest issue. Enjoy the read at
