description

The award-winning editors of Snow White, Blood Red return us to distinctly adult realms of myth and the fantastic—with 18 wondrous works that cloak the magical fictions we heard at grandma's knee in mantles of darkness and dread. From Roger Zelansky's delightful tale of Death's disobedient godson to Peter Straub's blood-chilling examination of a gargantuan Cinderella and her terrible twisted "art," here are stories strange and miraculous—remarkable modern storytelling that remold our most cherished childhood fables into things sexier, more sinister—and more appealing to grown-up tastes and sensibilities.
