Swan Sister

Fairy Tales Retold

by Terri Windling and Ellen Datlow

Paperback / softback Publication Date: 24/06/2013

 
Just as fairy-tale magic can transform a loved one into a swan, the contributors to this book have transformed traditional fairy tales and legends into stories that are completely original, yet still tantalizingly familiar.
In this book you will find:
a Rapunzel whose most confining prison is her loneliness
a contemporary rendering of the Green Man myth
two different versions of Red Riding Hood
a tale that grew out of a Celtic folk song
Sleeping Beauty's experience of her enchantment
two works inspired by the Arabian Nights
and more
In the follow-up to A Wolf at the Door, thirteen renowned authors come together with a selection of new and surprising adaptations of the fairy tales we think we know so well. These fresh takes on classic tales will show you sides of each story you never dreamed of.
