Diverse collection of stories (plus a few poems and personal recollections) by authors who understand that hell is for children and that you can never escape your childhood, only survive it. Many retellings of fairy tales. I read this over a long period of time, so I don't remember details on all the entries, but there was only one piece that I disliked. Most of the stories were of girls but there were enough of boys that I didn't feel like they were being ignored, as they tend to be when dealing with matters of this nature. Highly recommended for all "survivors." ( )

I'm a big fan of Terri Windling, and make an effort to seek out her anthologies. Thus, I got this one. I'd heard rave reviews of it - people saying "This is the one that made a difference in my life!"
I was a bit quizzical about that, because for me, that was 'Bordertown.' And for me, it remains Bordertown, although I can see why other people might need this book more. I was lucky enough to always be wanting to run 'to' - not having to run 'from.'
This book is on the theme of child abuse. It's kind of a rough read - not that any one of the stories is so particularly awful, but when read all in one go - that's a lot of child abuse. It's emotionally difficult. Terri Windiling's personal, autobiographical essay about why she chose to do this anthology is powerful, touching, and almost shockingly revealing.
As with any anthology, some of the stories are much better than others, but overall, it's a very good anthology.

Not doing my usual breakout, because unless I do it as I go for short story collections, it's a blurry whole.
There are some great stories in here, some brutal but amazing ones, and some...why was this even included? ones. About par for the course for collections. Still, there's a lot to be said for a collection that tries to bring awareness and a relieving whimsy to such a serious topic as child abuse. ( )

This collection of re-imagined traditional folk and fairy tales is harrowing, painful, even horrifying as the layers of sparkles and pixie dust are peeled back to expose truths. These stories tell us about the terrors of childhood and growing up -- the lies, the abandonments, the abuses -- using the symbols and motifs common to these very familiar stories. Intense and powerful. I cannot praise this collection highly enough, nor give sufficient warning to those who are easily triggered by such accounts -- the retelling of The Little Match Girl, perhaps my least favorite of the Hans Christian Anderson tales, stays with me still in this new version that turns the pathetic original on its head.

This book would not exist without the faith of the good people at Tor Books (particularly Tom Doherty, Beth Meacham, and Patrick Nielsen Hayden); the work of Donald G. Keller and Teresa Nielsen Hayden; and the encouragement I received in Boston: from the Endicott Studio Women's Art Group, the old Sunday morning "art bar" crowd, and also Paul Plaskey, Joanna Volpe, and Dr. Laurel Rice and Massachusetts General Hospital. Thank you all for the help you've given so generously, and in so many ways.
