Horror and folklore fans will welcome Jabberwocky, an eclectic collection of poems and short stories edited by Sean Wallace. Two of the highpoints are reimaginings of classic fairy tales, Ainsley Dicks's "In Grandmother's House" and Vera Nazarian's "Revulsion and the Beast." (Prime [www.primebooks.net], $10 paper ISBN 0-8095-5062-8)

Locus Looks at Short Fiction

Sean Wallace has put together a brief anthology of weird fantastical stories (mostly quite short) and poetry, Jabberwocky. The stories are all by women, and so are almost all of the poems. I liked Sonya Taaffe’s “Shadowplay”, a brief intense picture of regret over lost love, and Ainsley Dicks’ “In Grandmother’s House”, an interesting reimagining of “Little Red Riding Hood”.

The first issue of pocket-sized magazine Jabberwocky featured many authors familiar to readers of Prime Books: Sonya Taaffe, Holly Phillips, Vera Nazarian, Catherynne M. Valente, Yoon Ha Lee, Theodora Goss, Anna Tambour. We particularly enjoyed work by Catherynne M. Valente, Ainsley Dicks, and JoSelle Vanderhooft.

Aimee Poynter for Tangent Online: short fiction review

The final story, "In Grandmother's House" by Ainsley Dicks, is yet another fairy tale retelling, this time "Little Red Riding Hood." Though this is an often visited tale, Dicks manages to make it feel new by combining the grandmother and the wolf. This tale also contained wisps of Angela Carter. The only quibble I had with it was the timeline. The time the old woman spent as a wolf seemed too long for no one to have noticed she was gone. But overall, it is a minor point as far as the narrative is concerned, and I enjoyed the story.
