    Fairy tales transformed victims turned victimizers mythologies mixed and matched Christianity made pagan the subtext of fables become the actual text Silken prose and disturbing undercurrents.I first read this at age 13 or 14, back when it was initially published in the early 80s I still remember the hard look my mother gave me when I asked her to buy it for me the glance down at the tawdry cheesy cover the

    The common thread binding the nine stories five previously published in various magazines of this collection is that they re all re imagined fairy tales, and all of them are of high literary quality but otherwise they exhibit a wide variety Lee wasn t well served by the jacket copy, or by the above description, both of which tend to sensationalize these stories, under stress their emotional complexity, and paint an

    LMAO, I really liked all of these It should probably be renamed Princesses Behaving Badly by Dabbling in the Dark Arts and Worshiping Satan.

    If I hadn t read Angela Carter s The Bloody Chamber first I think I would have liked this even better As it is, it feels uneven than Carter s work and probably unfairly suffers from dealing with the same material, which is rewritten and re imaged fairy tales Carter also has a powerful take on the old Beauty and the Beast theme, I think.There are still a couple of really good stories in this collection, among them being the Snow W

    This collection of fairy tale retellings contains 10 stories ranging in length from traditional short stories to near novella length pieces, all varying in quality as well as in styles, from standard fantasy to Sci Fi to steampunk and horror gothic Tanith Lee is a really inventive author with one of the most daring imaginations out there.Each story appealed to me in different ways, and so despite giving the book an overall rating that show

    At the head of the stem there blossomed a rose slender as a tulip, its petals a pale and singing green There were no thorns, or rather only one and that metaphysical, if quite unbearably penetrating. I adored Tanith Lee s Biting the Sun, and I m always a fan of fairytale retellings, so I randomly picked this one up from the library It s mingled fantasy science fiction, with versions of the familiar stories that are ever so slightly askew, or play

    EDIT, just bought my own copy to reread Tanith Lee retells nine fairy tales in this darkly delicious collection Part of her magic is, what she does, stripping out details and ignoring rules of grammar when it suits her, work perfectly in her hands, but in the hands of a lesser writer would be as clunky and amateurish as a6th grader s essay on How I Spent My Summer Vacation But Lee s so good I m tempted to eat her books in hopes of absorbing some of her wr

    original post Books Are My LoversRed As Blood is a dark retelling of the famous fairytale Snow White In this story, Tanith Lee created a very vivid and eerie depiction of the tale with the Evil Queen as the center of it all In her version, the Queen is not evil In fact she is a good witch Snow White here is named Bianca, a princess with a very mysterious and dark disposition who hates to go out of the castle before dusk, with skin as white as snow and lips as red

    For the last couple of years I have been focusing on including short fiction in my reading routine Likewise, I have been trying to go back to reading fantasy and science fiction, two genres I devoured in my teens and early twenties but have gotten away from in recent years Red as Blood by Tanith Lee fits both categories as it s a collection of retold fairy tales, each one with a dark twist.The stories are based on the Grimm brothers tales but given a feminist focus The

    Many of these are pretty grim and are a fun twist on the old fairy tales A good read but maybe not her best I think I ve read some of them in the distant past and possibly even this collection The impetus to read this came from a list posted by author Kate Elliott, consensus seems to be it was a mixed bag I think for a first Lee read, I would recommend The Gorgon and Other Beastly Tales.There s one thing I hate about GoodReads finding out that an author I like has passed on, whi
