Strip the fairytale princesses of their petticoats and tiaras, and what you have left are the Black Apples. These are stories of trials and survival, strength and defeat, exploring the bones of fairytales. Carolyn has stolen from the temple and is on the run, the mistress of the Gingerbread house is out of control, Bluebeard’s child collects hearts on her wall and a horse is not a horse…
This collection offers eighteen new dark and delicious fairytales, some exploring the classic tales, others presenting brand new ones.

Reviews of Black Apples: 18 new fairytales

“From straightforward retellings of classic fairy tales to delightfully meta-fictive examinations of the genre itself, this anthology will find a wide audience–and maybe even pull in those who thought they left fairy tales behind them.”

Jan Stinchcomb at Lunar Station Quarterly

 

“The writing amongst these stories sucks you in completely, they are so well executed and my god, I just thoroughly enjoyed this book from start to finish. I would recommend this to anyone who is a fan of fairy tales, and to anyone who is wanting to read more anthologies.”

Strange Little Girls are made of sugar and spice, and something not quite as nice…
The strange little girls are orphans and changelings, suburban princesses, housewives, nuns and monsters. They are quirky and sweet, terrifying and heartbreaking. All of them a little lost, brimming with their own uniqueness.
In this strange little book of nineteen tales, Lotte goes swimming with her new fishy friends, Rin is freshly dug up, D’arcy strikes a bargain with the midnight mailman and Adelaide enters the mysterious House of Infinite Diversions. Our girls must fasten their bonnets and straighten their skirts to battle otherworldly dangers and challenging circumstances, internal struggles and doubts – and maybe find out who they really are.

Features stories by nineteen international authors.
