Angela Slatter's first U.S. collection features twelve of the award-winning Australian author's finest, darkest fairy tales, and adds two new stories to her marvelous cauldron of fiction. Stories peopled by women and girls-fearless, frightened, brave, bold, frail, and fantastical-who take the paths less travelled, accept (and offer) poisoned apples, and embrace transformation in all its forms.
Reminiscent of Angela Carter at her best, Slatter's work is both timeless and fresh: fascinating new reflections from the enchanted mirrors of fairy tales and forklore. Includes an introduction by Theodora Goss, author of _The Thorn and the Blossom_.
