A Wolf at the Door and Other Retold Fairy Tales Edited by Ellen Datlow and Terri Windling

A Wolf at the Door and Other Retold Fairy Tales - Delia Sherman, Terri Windling, Ellen Datlow, Jane Yolen

My partner loves anthologies. All kinds of anthologies and she is always trying to get me to read them. I finally got around to reading A Wolf at the Door and I adored it! Getting to read fairy-tale retellings written by Neil Gaiman, Tanith Lee, Garth Nix, and so much more was a complete delight. My favorite story was The Kingdom of Melting Glances by Katherine Vaz. It was beautifully written and told that I fell in love with her story. I've never read anything by Vaz but now, I definitely need to read more of her work.


With anthologies, you're going to have some hits and misses. I didn't love every single story in this collection, but I loved the majority of it so I have to recommend it to anyone out there who loves fairy-tales or any of the authors feature in this work. It might become a new favorite of yours.
