    1. Winner of Nebula and Hugo Award for Best Short Story 2017Ironically, this was the last story I read in my Nebula short story marathon. The story introduces two women and their own unique issues and situations. The story is set in a medieval fantasy world filled with mysterious magic and elements. The underlying theme is about letting go and moving forward(?) even though it is a scary thing to do. It is also about finding love(?). I am really not very sure. This is one of those tales which tells [...]


    2. Obviously I had to read this anthology of fairy tale retellings (especially since it involved some of my favorites & so many great authors). I was pretty surprised by how much I disliked most of the stories, though a lot of them were modernized in odd ways and just became too weird or depressing for me. So I had almost given up on this until I got to Kat Howard's retelling of The Snow Queen, which was pretty awesome. Then the final story (Naomi Novik's retelling of Rumpelstiltskin) was my fa [...]


    3. This short story receives my vote for first place in the 2017 Hugo Awards.A twisted fairy-tale with a great message.Two heroines, each trapped in her own tale. One is a prisoner on a glass hill, the other – doomed to walk the world in iron shoes, until she had worn down seven pair. But no one cursed them to this fate – each chose it herself. It’s supposed to be an atonement, or a way to protect the world. The world tells them it is their fault, and they believe it. It is Amira’s fault me [...]


    4. Available to read, here: uncannymagazine/article/seThe message overtakes the story a bit, in this allegorical piece. We're introduced to two fairytale tropes. One woman is cursed to have to wear out seven pairs of magical iron shoes. The other sits at the top of a glass mountain, while uncouth suitors attempt to scale the summit. Friendship and female empowerment will free them both from the unfair demands of men.Merged review:**** In the Desert Like a Bone • Seanan McGuire Little Red Riding H [...]


    5. Reading to prepare myself for the '17 Hugo Nominations, this nom is available online.It's a story of two females locked into rather interesting mythological stories, both of them trapped in both painful and degrading situations and eventually finding solace and freedom in each other.The mythos, itself is a curious blend of old tales, such as having to wear out seven pairs of metal shoes before being able to break her husband's bear-curse or in the other case, having being forced upon a mountaint [...]


    6. It's hard to enjoy a retelling for what it is when you either only vaguely recognize the name of the fairytale or have never heard of one in your entire life. Which was the case with more than half of the fairytale retellings in this book. Killed it for me. I know only the most popular ones and I haven't read the complete works of the Brothers Grimm or Hans Christian Anderson. My general expectation from this book was fun retellings like Naomi Novik's Spinning Silver of the famous fairytales lik [...]


    7. In the introduction, editors Dominik Parisien and Navah Wolfe express their desire to revisit the wonderful, strange, and alien of fairy tales. "In keeping with that original model of composite storytelling," they say, "we decided to run fairy tales through a prism, to challenge our authors to look at stories from an unusual angle, to bring them back into different genres and traditions, to--if you will--return them to their cross-genre roots." And they've certainly done this in this collection. [...]


    8. I've read a thousand fairy tale retellings, and I would have said that genre had been mined fairly extensively. This is a brilliant reinvigoration. Not every story was a hit with me, but even when I didn't love a story I loved the author's note afterward explaining their inspiration. My favorite was probably Amal El-Mohtar's Seasons of Glass and Iron, but all in all it's an excellent anthology. Bonus points for the stunning cover.


    9. This book was a rather fun collection of fairy-tale retellings. Though I didn't enjoy every story equally, I find that I'm now thinking kindly about this anthology as a whole. Bracketed by good, very enjoyable, stories and with at least two great ones in the mix, I really enjoyed the time I spent with this book. :-)There was one line in this book that startled a laugh out of me: In "Giants in the Sky" by Max Gladstone, on page 195, the narrator says, "I'm not asking you to solve quantum gravity [...]


    10. Simply the most brilliant story I've read this year.I refuse to tell you anything about it, because I think everybody should approach it with no preconceptions beyond "most brilliant story I've read this year."


    11. Interesting fantasy short story about women working out the world's unfair expectations of them. It's free here:uncannymagazine/article/se


    12. Way before I joined Gr's, reading anthologies was a favourite _ well sometimes only _ way to discover new authors; now, not so much. Now, my TBR list has reached such an unmanageable dimension that most times I don't even go looking for new books.But as most of you know, I may have a slight obsession with fairy tale retellings; that means that when a book with a title and cover such as this one, is released, I read it. And hope for the best.In the Desert Like a Bone by Seanan McGuire 3.5 Stars"I [...]


    13. Congratulations on Nebula, and congratulations on tricking me into reading Fantasy. This story in its essentials, felt like a modern day retelling of two Brothers Grimm fairy tales - Bearskin and Old Rinkrank that I barely remember from my childhood (my memory might as well be wrong here). What I loved about the narrative was the ambiguity that followed Tabitha and Amira, like they were already part of a well expanded universe, the details of which readers are free to imagine. In this retelling [...]


    14. Got to read an ARC for this one. There was one or two stories I didn't much care for, but overall it's a solid anthology full of new takes on classic fairytales. I can't be too specific without giving away spoilers, so I'll just say that my favorite stories in this anthology were ones where the "princesses" were able to save themselves or save each other.


    15. “What’s strong is the shoes women are made to wear: shoes of glass, shoes of paper, shoes of iron. Heated red hot; shoes to dance to death in.”Good story. Well-developed. A finalist for 2017 Hugo Award for short stories.“Magic is magic is magic and there is always a stronger magic.”Contrary to the tag, not a “gay” story. It’s a story “about two women reaching out of their respective tales,” the author says in her notes. “The enormity of what friendship means.” I try to re [...]


    16. What interested me the most about this collection was the range of approaches to the main theme: new fairy tales. The first part is full of what in my creative writing-studying days would be called “critical-creative re-writings”, stories that are simultaneously essays about the originals (every story in the anthology was inspired by one of the classic fairy tales), with digressive passages making the themes explicit. About 1/3 of the way through this changes and what follows is regular shor [...]


    17. Two stories of two women one who has to wear down 7 pairs of iron shoes and the other has to sit still on a mountain of glass. Both stories have a poetic fairy-tale beginning. Then the women meet, and as their stories intersect, the message comes down heavy-handed. (view spoiler)[One of them has an abusive husband and has to realize that it is not her fault, and the other has been attracting the attention of too many men and has to realize it is not her fault.(hide spoiler)] While these are mod [...]



    18. I picked up this book just for one story, the very last one in the book, by Naomi Novik. And it certainly didn't dissapoint. But there is a reason why I don't like collections of short stories. How do I rate the whole collection? Based on the best story? Does the most fantastic one make up for all the rubbish, making the book worth buying? Or maybe based on the worst story? Then all my ratings of such collections would reflect my dislike of them. Or maybe an average? Or a median?I was reading st [...]

    20. "From the woods to the stars, join us on eighteen extraordinary journeys into unexpected territories, uncharted lands, and unforeseen experiences. Welcome to an adventure that's strangely familiar and startlingly different at the same time. You're likely to emerge changed, but isn't that the way it is with all the best stories?An excellent anthology with lovely, intricate illustrations. (Take a peek at a few on the illustrator's website.) Most times with collections I'm prepared to trudge throug [...]


    21. This anthology takes root in a lot a different tales, some very well known thanks to Disney's adaptations or other movies and shows, while others were more obscure to me or even came from cultures I was not familiar with. I love that it used many of these and made me actually discover two stories: the original and the retold ones.I loved how this anthology managed to blend feminist retellings and fun or dark twists on famous tales. I loved the emphasis most stories had on women, women helping o [...]


    22. 2 stars So, I'm really not sure how I feel about Soey're not wlw, is that what you're saying? Or is that just really bad wording?I'm not saying there's anything wrong with having them be friends and not lovers, but then don't write an entire story that effectively queerbaits any wlw readerst impressed.


    23. Late to post this review as well.The stories I loved in this collection I loved with all my heart. The few that I didn't love are why this is only getting four stars. Retellings of fairy tales, especially modern times adaptations, don't always work for me.But as with everything in life, taste in short stories and fairy tales varies from person to person. What fell flat for me might be Best Story EVER! for you.Go read The Starlit Wood. Highly recommended.


    24. Зустрілися якось Діва-В-Біді та Діва-В-Процесі-Ініціації і провели тривалий взаємний курс побутової психотерапії.Амаль Ель-Мохтар взяла дві стандартні казки: "Сиди на скляній горі та чекай наречених" та "Хочеш розчаклувати чоловіка - зноси сім пар залізних чоботів" - але роз [...]



    25. More reviews available at my blog, Beauty and the Bookworm.It recently came across my radar that Naomi Novik, of the breaktaking Uprooted, would be putting out a book later this year called Spinning Silver, which would be an expanded take on the 30-page short story of the same title in this collection. That was enough for me to snap it up, and other stories by the likes of Garth Nix and Max Gladstone were extra treats.A few notes about the collection as a whole. First, these are not "new" fairy [...]



    26. Interesting mix of two fairy tales with strong women empowerment message. My first El-Mohtar story, even though I've listened to some of her podcasts (love her!)


    27. There are five Excellent stories here. There are six OK to Good stories. And there are six stories ranging somewhere from Meh to Blech. I nearly put the book down after an early run of tales that just drained my joy as well as patience. But I’m intrigued by the place fairy tales hold in the heart of culture and I wanted to read a collection of new tales written on the themes of ancient ones, so I pushed on. I’m glad I did. Four of my five favorite stories came after the point where I almost [...]
