Retold: Six Fairytales Reimagined edited by The Book Smugglers Ana Grilo and Thea James.

"The notion of a universality of human experience is a confidence trick and the notion of a universality of female experience is a clever confidence trick."
-Angela Carter

If she was with us Angela Carter would have celebrated her 75th birthday in 2015, so to mark the occasion Penguin Classics has published The Bloody Chamber: And Other Stories: 75th-Anniversary Edition her landmark re-imagining of the fairy-tale. Another great way to mark the anniversary year of her birth would be to plunge into these marvelous stories Retold: Six Fairytales Reimagined a clever and confident collection written and edited by women worthy of being called Angela Carter's literary daughters and heirs. The stories and authors in the collection include Hunting Monsters by S.L. Huang, In Her Head, In Her Eyes by Yukimi Ogawa, Mrs. Yaga by Michal Wojcik, The Mussel Eater by Octavia Cade, The Astronomer Who Met The North Wind by Kate Hall and The 99th Bride by Catherine F. King. Like Carter's classic set of tales this collection re-imagines stories that echo 'The Brothers Grimm', 'Hans Christian Andersen', 'The Thousand and One Nights' and even has a dash of Sci-Fi.

The editors have generously included a look at what inspired each story as well as separate chats with each author. ( )
