    One thought on “Gaslight & Grimm: Steampunk Faerie Tales”

    1. I got a copy through NetGalley, in exchange for an honest review I found this anthology quite inspiring in general, and it left me with a better impression than anthologies generally do I appreciated that most stories, while building upon the foundations of original tales, didn t hesitate to stray from them at some point, instead of being mere retellings almost identical to their inspirations For instance, the one inspired by Rapunzel.The ones I liked best When Pigs Fly original story The Three [...]

    2. I like steampunk and fairytale retellings so I was enjoying these 13 short stories Just when you think that a famous fairytale can t be re imagined any, someone comes up with an original idea I liked the blend of magic and steam powered technology in the Red Riding Hood story The three little pigs story made me giggle Their names are Porky, Petunia and Wilbur, all named after famous pig characters, very clever I was wondering if straight from the horse s mouth was a phrase that originated from t [...]

    3. I received this book through NetGalley and eSpec Books in exchange for an honest review In Wolfs Clothing 3 5A decent retelling I m alright with the whole Red Riding Hood legacy being a sort of spell I m a little wary of the whole Marceline turns younger thing, mainly because Morris repeatedly says that he s sexually attracted to her while she appears to be a maiden to the point where I m hesitantly putting this under the pedophilia bookshelf I don t really understand the steampunk genre, but I [...]

    4. Thirteen fairy tales transformed into shorts for this steampunk anthology provide several evenings of excellent enterainment, if you manage to put the book down before dawn.In Wolfs Clothing by James Chambers Can a family curse become a blessing in wolf s clothing Another addition to Morris Garvey s continuing storyline Look for other stories by Mr Chambers staring Morris where steampunk technology and magic cross Based on Little Riding Hood When Pigs Fly by Christing Norris A lively story of ai [...]

    5. Gaslight and Grimm is a collection of fairy tales you know and love punked into unimaginable guises From the sultry seduction of the Big Bad Wolf in James Chambers take on Red Riding Hood, In Wolf s Clothing to Jody Lynn Nye s poignant portrayal of dancer s desire to become prima ballerina, in The Perfect Shoes based upon The Red Shoes, there are variations to suit all tastes Each writer has wrought their own style upon Grimms work David Lee Summers brings a touch of the East to The Dragon and H [...]

    6. I received a copy of this for free from NetGalley.I was initially really intrigued by the premise of this collection There have been many fairy tale retellings coming to my attention recently, and I was really interested to see how the authors would spin steampunk into fairy tales I might have found it enjoyable if I remembered of the original stories they retold, rather than just the mainstream ones It s been a long time since I ve read the Grimm versions The quality of the stories varied gre [...]

    7. This anthology caught my eye with its juxtaposition of modern Steampunk with ancient folk tales Traditional stories have a way of drawing new authors and artists to re create and re examine, so it s no surprise an editor would give them a Steampunk twist The combination could have been almost too cute, but these stories worked for me.Of particular interest is David Lee Summers The Steam Powered Dragon, which adapts one of the less known Grim Brothers stories, The Devil and His Grandmother Summer [...]

    8. I am a few stories in so far, and I feel compelled to write a review already Some of the fairy tales I m not so familiar with, but others I have heard in one form or another over the years The re imagining of these tales are brilliant, a brilliant twist on these tales It also provides a good preview of some authors you may not be familiar with, as each tale is written by a different author It opens with an adaptation of Little Red Riding Hood by James Chambers, and incorporates parts of the stor [...]

    9. Like in most compilations of short stories, there were some I really liked, and some that weren t as good I didn t dislike any of the stories from this book, which is good And several, like the Cinderella and Rapunzel retellings, that have stuck with me and make me think Overall, I liked this book, and if you are a steampunk or fairy tale fan, this you will probably like it, too I received this book as a free giveaway from the giveaways.

    10. I received a copy through Netgalley in return for an honest review.I love steampunk and I really like fairy tales and folklore, so this book seemed to have a perfect setting.That said, I didn t always like the way the stories were retold Often they were stripped from their dark, age old setting, and the new setting did not seem to fit properly nor did it have the magic undertond both fairy tales and steampunk definately have.The book was nice enough, but it just didn t spark joy.

    11. Fantastic new take on old fairy tales If you think you know what s going to happen, think again Each story has it s own little twist that will keep you on the edge of your seat.

    12. If you like steampunk and fairy tales, then I highly recommend this book Although I have a few personal favourites, no one story shines out over the rest or lets the collection down All are equally absorbing, superbly written and masterfully worked It will keep you thoroughly entertained.

    13. This book feels like dark treacle It is deceptively sweet, strangely liquid and can drown you in a peculiar feelings.The re tales are all of books we have read and enjoy Little Red Riding Hood Cinderella The Three Little Pigs.Or are they When the wolf is a tale and a pelt, when the houses are hot air baloon what is known, and what is not The tales are deep and heavy like syrup, known and secretive like the Giocon da s smile, I don t know if I liked this book but I ll be thinking about it for a l [...]

    14. Backed on Kickstarter so I may have a bit of a bias.Isn t the cover gorgeous OMG I love it.I fell in love with the description as soon as I read it and couldn t hit the backer button fast enough I ll update once I ve received and read.
