It starts well with a Neil Gaiman story "Snow, Glass, Apples" which I could imagine being turned into a comic book. Gaiman is a poetic, stylish writer and this was well-written. However, it relied for most of its impact on turning on its head the expected fairy story and once you realised what was happening, any suspense was lost and it moved slowly towards an inevitable climax, which was rather over-egged. In this case, less would have been more. So, not perfect but still one of the better stories here and full marks for a great idea. Caitlin Kiernan's "Bela's Plot" was disappointing - as a Lugosi fan I wanted to enjoy it but felt that it never really got off the ground. "Armies of the Heart" by Christopher Fowler also promised more than it delivered.Read more ›
The authors that provided the stories in the book are varied nd show very different and distinct writing styles, some I like, some I do not but still find the stories and the ideas behind them interesting.
I would give this one a 2 fangs up, but I found a couple of the stories a little substandard. However, it is still worth reading.
