Greenwood:Ticonderoga Publications,2010Z17567882010selected work short story 'Sixteen tales, complex and beautiful. Fairytales told the way they used to be, throughout the generations before such stories were written and printed. Tales of caution and learning; remarkable and memorable. What you find in these pages will not be easily forgotten.' (Publisher's blurb) Greenwood:Ticonderoga Publications,2010
'A Feast of Sorrows―Angela Slatter’s first U.S. collection―features twelve of the World Fantasy and British Fantasy Award-winning Australian author’s finest, darkest fairy tales, and adds two new novellas to her marvelous cauldron of fiction. Stories peopled by women and girls―fearless, frightened, brave, bold, frail, and fantastical―who take the paths less traveled by, accept (and offer) poisoned apples, and embrace transformation in all its forms. Reminiscent of Angela Carter at her best, Slatter’s work is both timeless and fresh: fascinating new reflections from the enchanted mirrors of fairy tales and folklore.'
