The Fairytale Fantasy Bundle - Curated by Charlotte E. English
Most of us grew up with fairy stories, of one sort or another. Almost everyone has a favourite, or a whole book of favourites. Tricky things, fairy tales; they change with the years, adapt themselves to their audience or their culture, fade in one place only to reappear in different clothes half a world away. They are stories of magic and enchantment; of men in the worlds of faerie (or more recently, faeries in the worlds of men); of talking animals and curses, enchanted shoes and porridge-pots; of ogres and dragons and giants, quests and princesses and pixies.
Fairy tales have been inspiring and influencing the fantasy genre for many years, adding colour and quirks and style - and sometimes running off, giggling, with the plot. This is a bundle full of wonder, fairytale-fashion. Well-loved stories come up new in Christine Pope's Ashes of Roses and the multi-author anthology Once Upon a Kiss. The darker side of the fairy tale comes to the fore in Gwynn White & Erin St Pierre's Queen of Extinction. Talking animals, witches, damsels and royalty predominate in T. Kingfisher's quirky tale The Raven and the Reindeer, and Alethea Kontis's Trixter. Deb Logan and Anthea Sharp mix fairy-tale lore with the modern world in Faery Unexpected and Feyland. And I offer a gallimaufry of magic markets, wayward boots and faerie royalty in Faerie Fruit and Bessie Bell and the Goblin King.
A whole banquet of magic, witchcraft, enchantment and trickery, this bundle stacks nine books high for a fine feast of reading. – Charlotte E. English
