The Starlit Wood – Press

The Starlit Wood: New Fairy Tales is launching TOMORROW! Curious about the book? Want to know why Navah and I are so excited to share these stories with the world? Well, in honour of the impending release here’s a post about some of the wonderful early press the book has received! (And we’ll have a lot more stuff in the upcoming week.)

Starlit Wood (1)



  • Booklist: “This anthology is consistent throughout, with well-crafted writing and a tantalizing taste of each author’s unique journey into reimagining classic fairy tales for a new audience.”
  • Library Journal: “A great pick for readers looking for a fresh, diverse spin on standard fairy tales.”
  • Publishers Weekly: “A rich sample of what awaits us in the world of fairy tales…well worth making time to read.”
  • Romantic Times: “Its stories strip old tales down to the bone and build from those frames new, relatable, yet still magical stories”

Blurbs! (in case you missed them the first time around)

  • Terri Windling: The modern revival of fairy tale fiction for adults began in the 20th century (with the stories of Angela Carter and Tanith Lee), and The Starlit Wood is proof that the revival is still going strong. Editors Parisien and Wolfe have brought a wide range of writers together to blaze new trails through the dark of the woods. Whether you’re passionate about fairy tales, like I am, or haven’t read them since childhood, I recommend this excellent anthology. I simply loved it.
  • Jeff VanderMeer: “A classy, smart, and entertaining volume of stories put together with consummate care—and featuring the best and most exciting fantasy writers working in the field today.”
  • Jonathan Carroll: “Lots of strange and wonderful goings-on in THE STARLIT WOOD. Fairy tales you thought you’d left behind in childhood are back in some very poignant, sly and original versions that will touch the “Wow!” in most readers.”

More Neat Things!
