What Members Thought

Jane Yolen still rocks, but she didn't have the best story in this collection.

The best story, hands down, is "My Swan Sister" by Katerine Vaz. To say anything about it would spoil it. Just read it. Even if you don't buy this book or read anything else it, read that story.

The second best story is Midori Snyder's "Golden Fur", which is a nice twist on the enchanted princess theme. Also enjoyable was Gaiman's poem about Sherezade as well as a lovely retelling of "The Fisherman and his Wife".

But rea
Beautiful, fascinating, well-written. This is what retold fairytales should be like. There wasn't a single story in this book that I didn't love. It's one of my new favourites.
