The Merry Spinster: Tales of Everyday Horror

by Daniel Mallory Ortberg - £8.99  Corsair (2019)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9781472154125 | ISBN 10: 1472154126

A collection of darkly mischievous stories based on classic fairy tales. Sinister and inviting, familiar and alien all at the same time, The Merry Spinster updates traditional children’s stories and fairy tales with elements of psychological horror, emotional clarity, and a keen sense of feminist mischief.
 
Unfalteringly faithful to its beloved source material, The Merry Spinster also illuminates the unsuspected, and frequently alarming, emotional complexities at play in the stories we tell ourselves and each other as we tuck ourselves in for the night.
 
Bed time will never be the same.

"Ortberg has a voracious appetite for poison apples, and a genius for finding the places in fairyland where all the bodies are buried. The Merry Spinster will ruin your most-loved fables, in the best possible way."
(Charlie Jane Anders)
