(This review refers to the hardback edition)

While a worthy effort, Sleeping Beauty, Indeed fell short of my expectations. Some of the stories I was able to connect to its origins, others I had no clue. I enjoyed one story that paired Cinderella with The Little Mermaid. However though the title indicates Lesbian Fairytales, some stories are so vague on the sexuality between the characters that they wind up being a let-down.

As other reviewers have noted there are several typos within the book. The titled short story is missing a page at the end. There are inconsistencies with fonts, and just plain sloppy editing.

However, if you are a fan of fairytales, regardless of origin--story or sexuality--you should find this a good read. It won't change your life, but it's not a waste of time either.
