TOC: ‘Once Upon A Time: New Fairy Tales’ Edited by Paula Guran

Prime Books has posted the table of contents for Paula Guran’s upcoming themed anthology Once Upon A Time: New Fairy Tales:

Here’s the book description:

Eighteen extraordinary authors devise all-new fairy tales: imaginative reinterpretations of the familiar, evocative new myths, speculations beyond the traditional realm of “once upon a time.” Often dark, occasionally humorous, always enthralling, these entertaining stories find a certain Puss in a near-future New York, an empress bargaining with a dragon, a princess turned into a raven, a king’s dancing daughters with powerful secrets, great heroism, terrible villainy, sparks of mischief, and a great deal more. Brilliant dreams and dazzling nightmares with meaning for today and tomorrow…

  1. That’s one of the strongest TOCs I’ve seen in a theme anthology in YEARS. I do wonder why Cat Valente does not appear on the list. I would think she’d be an obvious choice.
