Terri Windling is fascinated by fairy tales, as is evidenced by her long career of promoting the rewriting of them. This is the first of the collections of horror fairytales that has become a near-annual occurrence. The only reason that I rate it as low as I do is the strident messaging on the parts of some of the authors; it is evident that some of them really have an agenda to push and push it hard.

For the most part, however, there are a number of lovely and dark tales in here, and it is well worth seeking out a copy is dark fairy tales are your thing.
