Wonderland was a magical anthology full of short stories inspired by Alice's Adventures in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll. All the stories managed to capture the wondrous yet morbid whimsy of Wonderland as they were full of imagination and followed no rules. It was a mixed bag- some were amazing and some not so much. Here's a brief summary of the stories and my thoughts on them:

Alice in Armour by Jane Yolen- 3 stars:


This was an amusing poem which I liked but it didn't

An anthology of stories inspired by Alice's Adventures in Wonderland already jumps straight to the top of my wish list but then you tell me it includes stories from authors like Juliet Marillier & L.L. McKinney and I just get even more excited about it!

This is an interesting collection of short stories and some poetry but unfortunately it just missed the mark for me.

There was some really interesting stories in here. Some I really liked, one of my favourites being the first story, it was hilarious.

However, there were no stories which I loved. Saying that, there were also no stories that I hated. They were all just pretty average.

I found that as the book went on, the stories started to merge into each other. Which became confusing. Maybe it's

I'm not usually great with anthologies because they're such a mixed bag! There were some great stories in this, some good, and some I didn't like. RTC

This started off really promising, I really enjoyed most of the stories in the first half. However, there were a few in the second half that I didn't really gel with which was a shame. If your an Alice in Wonderland fan though I would recommend this one as there are some really interesting takes on the tale.

Full review to come 🙂

When I noticed this new set of short stories inspired by Alice in Wonderland I immediately begged a copy to read. I’m such an Alice fan that recently, when someone came into my home for the first time, they asked if it was my favourite book. I’m not sure I’d fully realised that I’d acquired a tea set, a dodo, a Mad March Hare, and a 5ft white rabbit with working pocket watch that stands in the hall! I have a lot of the literature inspired by Alice and fell in love all over again watching the rec

First of all, Titan Books just has the best speculative fiction short story anthologies. Between this and the recent Wastelands 3: The New Apocalypse alone, I feel entirely spoiled with exposure to some of the best minds working in fantastic fiction today. Wonderland collects 20 brand new short works (18 stories, plus two poems from Jane Yolen) inspired by Lewis Carroll's classics, that run the gamut from luminous to terrifying, with every shade of wonder in between. Whether looking at Wonderlan ...more

'Wonderland' is an anthology of short stories inspired by 'Alice's Adventures in Wonderland'. I didn't need to know anything else about this book to know that I desperately wanted to read it. Although I'm not always a huge fan of short stories and I will always prefer to read a full-length novel, they were fun to dip in and out of and interesting to see the authors' takes on the original Alice.

The anthology blends together stories which fit into a myriad collection of genres, from horror to fan

I remember listening to the story of Alice in Wonderland when I was a little girl but I only really understood the dark and brooding nature of the story when I read it as an adult. I think it was one of the first classics I downloaded onto my kindle, when e-copies were still an innovative idea. There's something strangely compelling about Alice's Adventure in Wonderland and no matter when you read the story it still has that strangely dystopian edge which is quite, quite, chilling.

Alice Liddell lives!

Well, in the Book Wonderland: An Anthology of Works Inspired by Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, Alice has come to life several times in many different incarnations and each one made me look at this character in a different way each time. It is not just Alice in these adventures, all of the usual suspects appear and there

This is a collection of short stories inspired by Alice's Adventures in Wonderland which obviously appealed to me straight away. Unfortunately I didn't love it, nor did I dislike it so to say.

Being a mix of short stories and poetry there were bound to be stories I liked and some I didn't, honestly I DID end up disliking more than I enjoyed. They were really quite odd which don't get me wrong, isn't a bad thing, but some were just too odd and I struggled to understand them or get my head around t

(Disclaimer: I received this book from the publisher. This has not impacted my review which is unbiased and honest.)

Wonderland: An Anthology travels in so many different directions. Whether it's a story that fixates on the wondrous portals in the form of rabbit holes, or the mysterious creatures that populate Wonderland. If you like any of the authors, this anthology is a sure bet. You may recognize the contributors from books of their own featuring zombies, survival stories, and fantasy world

I love fairytales so I was excited to fall down the rabbit hole into this collection. This is a anthology of short stories that take inspiration from Alice in Wonderland.
I have to say this was a strange collection and there were some I really liked and there were others that I just couldn't connect with.
