We are less than two months away from the release of The Starlit Wood: New Fairy Tales. TWO MONTHS. Everything from the stories to the cover to the artwork to the absurdly beautiful design has Navah and I excited.
In anticipation of that, we decided to share some of the early praise the book has received. Below are blurbs by Terri Windling, Jeff VanderMeer, and Jonathan Carroll. The fact that these amazing people loved our book already makes it all worth it.
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 Startlit 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.
– Terri Windling, World Fantasy Award-winning editor of the Snow White, Blood Red series
“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.”
– Jeff VanderMeer, New York Times-bestselling author of the Southern Reach trilogy
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.
