Modern Fairy Tales


Do you like modern retellings of classic fairy tales? Here are a few of my favourites. Most of these are anthologies of modern retold fairytales edited by  Ellen Datlow and Terri Windling. 

Most of you probably remember Gregory Maguire from his Wizard of Oz book, Wicked, but I much prefer his Confessions of an Ugly Stepsister, a retelling of Cinderella. 


Want something even more modern? Why not check out Bill Willingham's comic Fables, the story of fairy-tale characters exiled to our world. It's pretty awesome up to the end of the war against the Adversary, so about to Fables: The Dark Ages.

What about you? What's your favourite modern fairy tale?
