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.

Once Upon a Time, there was . . . a big tower with a girl called Rapunzel trapped inside. Have you ever thought about all of the unusual buildings in fairytales and nursery rhymes and who would have designed them? If you want to know who, well, find out from Lynda Collins. And while you’re questioning these fairy tales, did you ever wonder how the Princess managed to feel that pea under all of those mattresses? Was there some sort of conspiracy to gain the throne? You only have to read Jan Edwards’ story to find out. And for that matter, what about the poor bears who had their home invaded? How do the bears feel? And who are the invaders. All questions, which can be answered by Theresa Derwin. As for the Beast – well, is the Beast good or evil? Did the witch who changed him into a beast do something good or something bad? Hannah Lackoff seeks to explore these issues, and maybe muddy the waters even more. In Colin Fisher’s tale we meet a Gretel who is immediately feisty, sarcastic, and quite aware of the absurdity of her situation, and the Witch was more than a little obsessive compulsive. And finally, we meet William Meikle’s version of ‘The Three Little Pigs’ where anything can happen! If you enjoy reading fairy tales that twist and surprise, then ‘Grimm and Grimmer: Volume One’ is for you. Step into our world of fairy tales retold . . .
