I love a good fairy tale; both the originals and all the myriad sorts of retelling. My very favorites, though, are the ones that keep that darkness that’s inherent in many fairy tales, and add infinite embroideries onto a familiar cloth. One of the best examples of the sheer variety possible is in the wonderful series brought together by visionary editor Terri Windling in the 1990s. While we don’t have all the books in the series, the ones we do are worth enjoying.
