Colin Fisher takes over the editorial reins for our third anthology of twisted fairy stories – bedtime tales for children, amusing diversions, or a peek into the darkest recesses of the imagination? Here, in our third anthology of recast tales you will find variety enough to satisfy the most jaded of Grimm devotees; James Ninness brings us the cautionary tale of a selfish child; John Haas gives a witty exposition on the injustice of never quite being able to leave one’s past behind; Damon Cavalchini’s modern day gangster spends his life wondering how to be normal; SM Nilsen makes us wonder if perhaps Jack wasn’t quite the brave hero we’ve been led to believe? And Kerry GS Lipp shows us why we should always approach a frog prince with caution. Finally, L F Robertson provides a sombre soliloquy on Death.

And lurking behind all is the question – ‘where do stories go?’ What if there’s a collector? Hiding in the shadows, playing with words and weaving webs…

From the macabre to the heroic to the foolish, these are fairy stories in a new – and darker – light.
