About the Book

"Fairy tales are among the earliest fantasies we are exposed to when we are young and impressionable children. In one way or another they stay with us throughout our lives, whether in their original versions, or filtered through cartoon retellings. What more fun could a fantasy writer have than to take up the challenge of drawing upon this rich material and transforming it into something new... From the adventure of the witch in the gingerbread house and her close encounter with the oven..to Golda Lockes who has a very special arrangement with those well-known bears...to a murderous attack with a glass slipper...to Jack, a successful theoretical geneticist, who discovers just how perilous research can be...to a wolf detective who sets out to solve 'Grandma's' murder, here are highly inventive stories that will give you an entirely new perspective on those classic tales."--p. [4] of cover.
