Fantasy legend Jane Yolen (The Emerald Circus, The Devil’s Arithmetic) delights with this effortlessly wide-ranging offering of fractured fairy tales. Yolen fractures the classics to reveal their crystalline secrets, holding them to the light and presenting them entirely transformed; where a spinner of straw into gold becomes a money-changer and the big bad wolf retires to a nursing home. Rediscover the fables you once knew, rewritten and refined for the world we now live in―or a much better version of it.

 

Goodreads

I absolutely love retold fairy tales, and Jane Yolen is a master of the art. When I saw this collection coming out I got really excited–looking forward to diving into it! Also, how great is that cover?!? How to Fracture a Fairy Tale will be out on November 5th from Tachyon Publications.

  1. This sounds great and I love the cover. I’ve read Jane Yolen before and enjoyed her short stories -which is quite unusual as I don’t tend to go for shorter stories.
