This "first rate anthology of reimagined fairy tales" (Locus Magazine) features an all-star lineup of award-winning and critically acclaimed writers. Once upon a time. It's how so many of our most beloved stories start. Fairy tales have dominated our cultural imagination for centuries. From the Brothers Grimm to the Countess d'Aulnoy, from Charles Perrault to Hans Christian Anderson, storytellers have crafted all sorts of tales that have always found a place in our hearts. Now a new generation of storytellers has taken up the mantle that the masters created and shaped their stories into something startling and electrifying. Packed with award-winning authors, this "fresh, diverse" (Library Journal) anthology explores an array of fairy tales in startling and innovative ways, in genres and settings both traditional and unusual, including science fiction, western, and post-apocalyptic as well as traditional fantasy and contemporary horror. From the woods to the stars, The Starlit Wood: New Fairy Tales takes readers on a journey at once unexpected and familiar, as a diverse group of writers explore some of our most beloved tales in new ways across genres and styles. Contains stories by: Charlie Jane Anders, Aliette de Bodard, Amal El-mohtar, Jeffrey Ford, Max Gladstone, Theodora Goss, Daryl Gregory, Kat Howard, Stephen Graham Jones, Margo Lanagan, Marjorie Liu, Seanan McGuire, Garth Nix, Naomi Novik, Sofia Samatar, Karin Tidbeck, Catherynne M. Valente, and Genevieve Valentine.… (mais)

All-star cast, including an early, short version of Spinning Silver by Naomi Novik; other authors are Charlie Jane Anders, Aliette de Bodard, Amal El-mohtar, Jeffrey Ford, Max Gladstone, Theodora Goss, Daryl Gregory, Kat Howard, Stephen Graham Jones, Margo Lanagan, Marjorie Liu, Seanan McGuire, Garth Nix, Sofia Samatar, Karin Tidbeck, Catherynne M. Valente, and Genevieve Valentine. Many of the tales from which the stories take inspiration are familiar from the Western canon, but the takes are mostly innovative and of course often push back on the misogyny encoded into so many of them. Well done. ( )

Like so many short story collections, some standouts, some that didn't work for me. I was a little disappointed that it was fairy tale retellings, not actually new fairy tales, but it was still worth the read. ( )

This is the tale of two women who must bear their burdens for the betterment of those around them. Because men cannot help themselves around her beauty, Amira must imprison herself high on a glass hill to keep all of her potential suitors at bay. Tabitha must wear out seven pairs of iron shoes to break her husband's curse. Neither questions their situation on their own, but when they cross paths and tell each other their stories, they learn not only about the value of perspective but also about assumptions and misconceptions as well as the power they both have to control their own destinies.

There is something about a well-written adaptation of a fairy tale that I always enjoy. Reimagining and reinventing a classic story invokes considerations of perspective and innovation, and it is not easy to retell an existing story in an original way. But here readers get the gift of not only one excellent retelling but two intertwined tales that gain additional layers of meaning through the juxtaposition of each woman's story. ( )

Five stars for Amal El-Mohtar's story Seasons Of Glass And Iron (which is the only sorry I've read from this book). I really enjoyed it! ( )
  Stamat | Apr 20, 2021 |
As with most short story anthologies, this one is a mixed bag. Some of the stories I liked, some of them I didn't like. However, in this case, some of them I *really* didn't like. Also, I couldn't help but notice that with a couple of exceptions (out of eighteen) the stories were all retellings of Western fairy tales. While I do like retellings where I know the original material, I thought there was so much more room for exploration of other cultures in this book of supposedly "new" fairy tales.

I did enjoy a few of the stories a lot ("Reflected" by Kat Howard, "The Other Thea" by Theodora Goss, "Pearl" by Aliette de Bodard, and "Seasons of Glass and Iron" by Amal El-Mohtar which I'd read before) and some of the stories a little ("The Briar and the Rose" by Marjorie M. Liu, "In the Desert Like a Bone" by Seanan McGuire, and "Giants in the Sky" by Max Gladstone which I felt almost went over my head) but there were some I just didn't like at all ("Even the Crumbs Were Delicious" by Daryl Gregory, "Badgirl, the Deadman, and the Wheel of Fortune" by Catherynne M. Valente, and most especially "When I Lay Frozen" by Margo Lanagan which I liked even less after I read the author's notes afterward). ( )
