The Brothers Grimm... Charles Perrault... Hans Christian Andersen... Their deceptively simple bedtime stories of myth and magic stirred the dreams- and the nightmares- of the children we once were. All the enchantment of these timeless tales still slumbers in our grown-up imaginations... waiting for an awakening kiss.

In this triumphant collection of original fiction, today's leading fantasy writers spin the cherished fables of childhood into glittering gold- offering magical tales for adults, as seductive as they are sophisticated.

A jealous prince plots the destruction of his hated broter's wedding by inventing a "magic" suit of clothing visible only to the pure at heart...
A marvelous frog holds an astonishing secret, until a maiden's kiss reveals a terrible truth...
A troll-killing, princess-rescuing warrior is compelled to consider events from his adversaries' point of view...
A young girl's strange fairy tale obsession results in a brutal murder...
An embittered mother cares for her slowly dying son who is trapped in a thicket that guards a sleeping beauty...
A take on Rapunzel, which takes place in modern times, in the beauty-pageant circuit, yet follows the old story almost exactly.
A Sleeping Beauty retelling set in an alternate, magic-rich nineteenth-century England, and full of insight about the nature of "true love". Ends not happily, but perfectly.
"Snow in Summer" turns the tables on Snow White's evil stepmother with a deep-dish apple pie and a fry pan.
"Goldilocks Tells All" is especially memorable for its Jerry Springer-like portrayal of the ultimate dysfunctional family.
A seduced prince willingly and knowingly fell prey to a sensuous usurper's treachery...
A flesh-eating ogre gamboled in the footlights...
... and many more....

Erotic, compelling, witty, and altogether extraordinary, these stories lay bare our innermost demons and desires- imaginatively transforming our youthful fantasies into things darker, slyer and more delightfully subversive.
