Book Review: Once Upon A Time, part 1

Once Upon A Time edited by Paula Guran, part 1
From the editor of ‘New Cthulhu’ and ‘Witches’ comes this fairy tale anthology.

The Coin of Heart’s Desire
A newly crowned Empress makes a bargain with a dragon. Okay.

Best Line:
“I like to eat historians. Their bones whisper the most delicious secrets.”

The Lenten Rose
A sequel to ‘The Snow Queen’. Good.

The Spinning Wheel’s Tale
By Jane Yolen, the spindle from ‘Sleeping Beauty’ tells its tale. Good.

Best Line:
“Foolish acorn child.”
