    PDF Anna Kashina æ Once Upon a Curse PDF Å Once Upon PDF \ æ once free, upon book, curse kindle, Once Upon ebok, Once Upon a Curse MOBILike most anthologies this is a mixed bag there's the great stories there's the decent ones and then there's the terrible ones With a total of eleven myth fairy tale retellings Once Upon a Curse contains examples of all threeI couldn't bother to review the six stories that turned out either bad or unremarkable I've already largely forgotten them in any case But the overall rating of 3 might give the wrong impression that there's nothing worth your time in this anthology There are and it'd be a pity to miss the gems because of the chaff There's five stories here that stood out to meTHE GOOD ONES Come Lady Death by Peter S Beagle gets 35 stars It's a legend inspired short story than a proper retelling and has an intriguing plot a bored high society aristocrat decides to shock the London ton by extending an invitation to the unlikeli

    PDF Anna Kashina æ Once Upon a Curse PDF Å Once Upon PDF \ æ once free, upon book, curse kindle, Once Upon ebok, Once Upon a Curse MOBI‘Once Upon A Curse’ is a collection of stories and fairy tales by a handful of authors Some new some well known all very capable Like many fairy tales these stories are not for children Some travel familiar paths and some re invent myth All feel fresh and original The first story ‘A Necklace Of Rubies by Cindy Lynn Speer retells the tale of Bluebeard I have read the story before i

    PDF Anna Kashina æ Once Upon a Curse PDF Å Once Upon PDF \ æ once free, upon book, curse kindle, Once Upon ebok, Once Upon a Curse MOBIShort story collections especially those by many authors tend to be a very mixed bag of the good the bad and the meh Once Upon a Curse a collection of reworked folkfairy tales linked by the notion of a curse has all three but why talk about the bad and the meh? I'd rather focus on some of the standout talesI requested this ARC because I knew it contained a Peter Beagle storyand I was not disappointed by his contribution Titled Come Lady Death it has that quality that many Peter Beagle pieces have a sort of bright and vivid sharp edged pictorial quality rather like viewing a tapesty that tells a story The characters are somewhat two dimensional because it is not a character story it's a concept story of a jaded elderly woman who decides to make her next p

    PDF Anna Kashina æ Once Upon a Curse PDF Å Once Upon PDF \ æ once free, upon book, curse kindle, Once Upon ebok, Once Upon a Curse MOBIThis anthology mostly missed the swings in quality and content that so many anthologies suffer There was no story where I wondered how did this get included who picked this? There was however an overall higher than I expected number of typos and errors Guess I shouldn't have been surprised at the internal typos since there's even one on the back cover descriptionA Necklace of Rubies by Cindy Lynn Speer Well done creepy with a perfect twistiness“Come Lady Death” by Peter S Beagle Deliciously written I am a huge fan of Beagle's style of descriptive prose No real plot twists or surprises but enjoyable to read“Summer Wind” by Nancy Kress What if Sleeping Beauty was the only one who didn

    PDF Anna Kashina æ Once Upon a Curse PDF Å Once Upon PDF \ æ once free, upon book, curse kindle, Once Upon ebok, Once Upon a Curse MOBITo be fair to other anthologies all of the stories in this book have been published elsewhere So the editor was able to cherry pick the very best instead of asking people they like to participate and hope they were spot on this time A Necklace of Rubies by Cindy Lynn Speer An excellent version of Bluebeard with some new elements thrown in that made it interesting Come Lady Death by Peter S Beagle Not sure what this was based on It was good but Beagle has never quite had my favorite voice Summer Wind by Nancy Kress A version of Sleeping Beauty with a interesting ending for Aurora I liked it It reminded me of Sheri Tepper's Beauty Stronger Than Time by Patricia C Wrede I have read this version of Sleeping Beauty before and it has lasted the test of time Still excellent Words Like Pale Stones by Nancy Kress A sad version of Rumpelstiltskin that touches on a mother's love for her child

    PDF Anna Kashina æ Once Upon a Curse PDF Å Once Upon PDF \ æ once free, upon book, curse kindle, Once Upon ebok, Once Upon a Curse MOBIIt's rare for me to wholeheartedly recommend an anthology but I am recommending this one Once Upon a Curse is a collection of amazing fairy tale interpretations from some pretty fantastic authors With short story collections I usually only like a couple and am neutral about the rest but for this one there isn't one story that I didn't like Most of them I lovedThere are some things keeping me from giving this book a perfect rating The last story definitely could have been cut by at least ten pages While it was interesting to read about all the different cultural retellings of Cinderella I don't think it was necessary to the main plot and all the stories wit

    PDF Anna Kashina æ Once Upon a Curse PDF Å Once Upon PDF \ æ once free, upon book, curse kindle, Once Upon ebok, Once Upon a Curse MOBII requested this short story collection because Peter S Beagle was featured I still haven't read any of his novels which I really need to remedy But I was pleased with the other stories here not just his which makes me happy I did get the feeling that I should recognize the myths some of these stories are based on but I suppose my mythology is lacking Many of the stories tasted familiar as if I had read something like it before but I couldn't pin it down For all that this collection had me reading fast because the stories are well written Beagle's story is
