Details: Product Description A vampiric Snow White whose pious stepmother is her only salvation.... A supernatural Cinderella who strikes at midnight, leaving behind a prince mad with desire.... A sleeping beauty never meant to be woken... In her World Fantasy Award-nominated short story collection, Red as Blood, Tanith Lee deconstructed familiar fairy tales, recapturing their original darkness and horror in haunting new interpretations. Behind gilded words and poised princesses, she exposed a sinister world of violence, madness, and dangerous enchantments. With Redder than Blood, Lee resumes the tradition of twisting tales. Among its nineteen tales, this volume explores unnerving variations of Beauty and the Beast, The Frog Prince, Snow White, and other classics, including three never-before-published stories. A recognized master fantasist, Tanith Lee has won multiple awards for her craft, including the British Fantasy Award, the World Fantasy Award for Life Achievement, and the Bram Stoker Award for Lifetime Achievement in Horror. Review Praise for Red as Blood: “Lee has conceived something unique and executed it superlatively well, displaying gifts as both a fantasy writer and a folklorist.” — Booklist  "Tanith Lee is Fantastika's Joyce Carol Oates.... You can imagine these timeless stories whispered around an oasis campfire or in a sharship's engine room." — Locus "[Tanith Lee is the] Princess Royal of Heroic Fantasy and Goddess-Empress of the Hot Read." — Village Voice “Lee’s entrancing and vivid style make what may seem a minor exercise into a collection of essentially new stories with some of the resonances of folklore.” — Publishers Weekly “Lee is equally at home with sf and fantasy, and in this collection of nine stories, she turns some familiar fairy tales inside-out, investing them with an unearthly aura.” — Library Journal "[Lee retells] these classics with  unique, insightful, often terrifying twists." — Kliatt “These are not just rewritten stories, they are retold. And the retelling is good enough that many of them ring as true as the originals.” — Science Fiction and Fantasy Book Review “All of Lee’s stories have a style which is heroic, convincing and is feminist without interfering with the overall impact of her fiction. Red as Blood is one of her best.” — Fiction, Literature and the Arts Review “[Tanith Lee] is one of the finest short story writers publishing in the field of fantasy and SF today.” —SFRA About the Author Tanith Lee is one of the leading fantasy authors working today. She has written over 50 novels and short story collections, among them the bestselling Flat Earth Series. She has won the World Fantasy Award numerous times as well as the August Derleth Award.

Some called her the Red Queen, though she was not; others had titled her the Red or Scarlet Lily—or the Ruby That Sings. So many names, so much eccentric description hiding what it displayed. By the age of nineteen he was familiar with her history, and by twenty had read several esoteric books concerning her. Seventeen years after, he stood on a street, gazing at the Palace where she had lived. He acknowledged he had been blindly if intermittently seeking her all that intervening time. And now he had arrived. But he was no longer a romantic of twenty. And she was almost four centuries dead. * * * *  My name is Edmund Sanger. No doubt you will know my father’s name, William Joseph Sanger, the actor-architect, whose memorable performances (Hamlet, Cesare Borgia) left audiences fainting or abject with joy; whose small herd of elegant buildings still dominate certain little towns of the north and west of England. I grew up in a crazy household. I don’t use the term lightly. William had long since driven my pretty, unclever mother mad. Their three daughters copied, or rose against her. I was the late son, appearin
