Grimm, Grit, and Gasoline...An anthology of Fairy Tale Retellings

I m very fond of fairy tales and fairy tale retellings, and World Weaver Press just put up a new one for pre-order. Called Grimm, Grit, and Gasoline, the collection of dieselpunk and decopunk tales was edited by Rhonda Parrish. (No relation, as far as I know.) This is the first in a new series Parrish will be editing for World Weaver called "Punked Up Fairy Tales."

I am fascinated by all the varieties of "punk," from solar punk to clock punk to atomic punk, and beyond but I'd never heard of "Decopunk," but it's helpfully defined on the site.

Just the titles of the stories are evocative One that caught my eye was "Steel Dragons of a Luminous Sky" by Brian Trent. I am a longtime fan of Brian's work and can't wait to see what he's done here.

Wendy Nikel's "Things Forgotten on the Cliffs of Avevig' is another tale I can't wait to read. Yu can preorder the book on the World Weaver Press site or at your favorite digital retailer.
