The following website was suggested by Mawgojzeta

http://myths.e2bn.org/index.php

It seems to be an illustrated audio book for several different fairy tales and legends.

Anna | 3 comments I just found this website: http://www.pitt.edu/~dash/folktexts.html
It's called "Folklore and Mythology" and has a large collection of texts or links to to the websites, where you can find them.

I was really surfing the net for different versions of Snowwhite (inspired by the article Chris posted). She's on this website too: http://www.pitt.edu/~dash/type0709.ht...

SurLalune is a great site, and it has lots of useful information for anyone who wants to know more about various fairy tales. The blog also has some interesting tidbits.

fairytalemagazine.com is a very interesting online magazine, which published different twists, POV, etc. on fairy tales. Each issue revolves around a different tale, and there are some very interesting and unique ideas there.
The magazine has currently shut down, but there is a monthly contest still going on revolving around the same idea. Anyone can send in a story or a poem [that follow the guidelines], and the wining entries are once again very original and interesting.

another good blog to check out is the "Once Upon a Blog" at http://fairytalenewsblog.blogspot.com/

I know that site! I used it for a project earlier on this year. It has a VERY large collection, and not only of the official tales. there are also different versions from all over the world of different types of tales. Definitely interesting to go through if you had some spare time

Kristina Wojtaszek | 23 comments Ok, and I'll go ahead and promote my own website as well, since, on occasion, I do write little blog posts on fairy tales:

here's a page on fairy tale retellings from my site:

message 16: by Emily (new)

Emily | 8 comments Hopefully I'm all right to post this here. My Myth/Folklore professor has what I think is a rather nice little site of collected myths, folktales and fairy tales. It reads like it's a classroom website, but it's pretty much open to the public. Has some fantastic information on Andrew Lang, etc.

Siareen | 35 comments This blog seems fairly new, but it might have some interesting things. By the looks of it, it's trying to promote some of the less well known fairy tales and bring them up for discussion :)

message 19: by Leah (new)

Leah (flying_monkeys) | 1009 comments I just discovered the following site this morning and, after reading five posts, subscribed by email. Well-written and funny!

The Grimm Report - News based on folklore and fairytale. Not for kids. http://grimmreport.com/

From their About page: "Celebrating the absurd with mock-tabloid satire, GrimmReport.com marries the reality of everyday life with popular elements from fairytales, folklore, and nursery rhymes. Rejoice with the Beast as Belle grants him permission to convert the den into a man-cave. Learn why the third little pig grows weary of his live-in brothers. Follow the courtroom drama of Rumpelstiltskin’s indictment in the Straw-To-Gold Scandal. GrimmReport.com covers all of these stories and more."

S.G. (s-girl) | 4 comments This isn't a pure resource per se but http://www.erstwhiletales.com/ is a webcomic series of Grimm fairy tales done by a group of artists. (You can see the stories they've done by going to the menu corresponding to "Comics" at the top of the page.)

I think part of the fun is trying to guess which of the variants the artist/writer is following and then also picking out their own spin on things.
