Fairy tales reimagined--in stories by "a distinguished company of writers" including Neil Gaiman, Joyce Carol Oates, and Tanith Lee (Kirkus Reviews). For many of us, the fairy tale was our first exposure to the written word and the power of storytelling. These wondrous works of magic and morality enthralled us, enchanted us, sometimes terrified us, and remain in our hearts and memories still. Once again, World Fantasy Award-winning editors Ellen Datlow and Terri Windling have compiled an extraordinary collection of reimagined tales conceived by some of today's most acclaimed contemporary purveyors of literary fantasy, science fiction, and horror, including Neil Gaiman, Gahan Wilson, Joyce Carol Oates, Tanith Lee, Nancy Kress, Gene Wolfe, and others. Remarkable things lurk in these dark and magical woods. Here Beauty confronts a serial-killer Beast, Hansel and Gretel's witch resides not in a gingerbread house but in a luxurious resort, and Rumpelstiltskin is truly the devil demanding his due, rightfully or otherwise. The hilarious "Roach in Loafers" ingeniously combines the classic "Elves and the Shoemaker" tale with "Puss in Boots" and adds an insectile twist, while in a modern fable that blends The Wizard of Oz and Hans Christian Andersen, Dorothy is set adrift in Hollywoodland, ruby slippers and all. These are not the fairy stories you remember from childhood.… (mais)

As with most short story collections, this one was a mixed bag of selections. There are bvery few stories that come to mind as being particularly enjoyable - even if they were quite well written and highly readable - since most of the authors seem to have chosen to emphasize the darker aspects of the fairytales. Witches may be triumphed over (as in Gahan Wilson's telling of Hansel and Gretel) and lovers found (as in Tanith Lee's "The Beast"), but none of the stories have truely happy endings. Some stories are amusing at best, but in a rahter bleak way as the characters are routinely traumatized and the underlying shadows are clearly creeping in. ( )

Ruby Slippers, Golden Tears is another volume of retold fairy tales. As with all short story anthologies, there were standouts and not-so-great entries, but overall this volume was great. I particularly loved the stories that were referencing stories I wasn't already familiar with, such as "The Fox Wife," which draws on Japanese lore about the kitsune, a fox demon; or "The Printer's Daughter," in which a printer's desire for a competent apprentice gives life to a girl made of discarded newsprint and books who can only speak in the content printed on them, which varies from bawdy to high oratory; and "Roach in Loafers," about a smooth-talking magical cockroach who makes dreams come true. I enjoyed the kitsune story so much it prompted me to look for more kitsune tales. ( )

Darker revamped versions of classic folk & fairy tales. My top picks from the volume are “The Beast” (Lee) & “Match Girl” (Bishop) ( )

Most of the stories were poorly written, one was ghastly. The stories themselves are amusing and thankfully short. I picked this edition because it includes a story from Joyce Carol Oates but I'm thinking maybe I should have tried one of the first two editions. This was nothing that will be remembered and if anything, most of the Authors in this collection I will be avoiding in the future. I think the best writing were from the known Authors I love, Joyce Carol Oates and Neil Gaiman. I like to read short stories to find other Authors that I can break into, this was not the case here. Very disappointed. ( )

A collection of short stories, all with the theme of reimagined fairytales, some familiar and some more obscure. Each author chose his or her own tale to expand upon, so there are some stories which are interpreted by more than one writer. As often happens with such anthologies, there were some stories I enjoyed greatly and others that I didn't care to finish. But I think almost anyone would find several tales to enjoy in this book. There is also a fine bibliography for further reading. Recommended. ( I read this on my Kindle.) ( )
