Once Upon a Time: New Fairy Tales ed by Paula Guran
Trade paperback format. Includes work by such fabulous writers as Theodora Goss, Caitlin R. Kiernan, Tanith Lee, Venevieve Valentine, and Jane Yolen (and many more)!
Eighteen extraordinary authors devise all-new fairy tales: imaginative reinterpretations of the familiar, evocative new myths, speculations beyond the traditional realm of "once upon a time."
Often dark, occasionally humorous, always enthralling, these stories find a certain Puss in a near-future New York, an empress bargaining with a dragon, a princess turned into a raven, a king's dancing daughters with powerful secrets, great heroism, terrible villainy, sparks of mischief, and a great deal more.
Brilliant dreams and dazzling nightmares with meaning for today and tomorrow...
