Publisher Description

Just as fairy-tale magic can transform a loved one into a swan, the contributors to this book have transformed traditional fairy tales and legends into stories that are completely original, yet still tantalizingly familiar

In the follow-up to A Wolf at the Door, thirteen renowned authors come together with a selection of new and surprising adaptations of the fairy tales we think we know so well. These fresh takes on classic tales will show you sides of each story you never dreamed of.

A former New Yorker, Terri lives with her husband and daughter in a small country village in Devon, England.

“If there is a single person at the nexus of fantasy literature, it is Terri Windling—as writer, as painter, as editor, as muse.” —Jane Yolen
