Tales of brutality. Tales of beauty. Romantic faerie lovers. Abusive husbands. Master fantasist Tanith Lee’s stories of twisted fairy tales, newly collected in this volume, presents heart-wrenching stories of cruelty and darkness blended beautifully with a strange loveliness. A collection that is arresting and striking, and yet one that evokes that essential fairy tale feeling. I devoured these tales whole.

— From Kelly


A vampiric Snow White whose pious stepmother is her only salvation....

A supernatural Cinderella who strikes at midnight, leaving behind a prince mad with desire....

A sleeping beauty never meant to be woken...

In her World Fantasy Award-nominated short story collection, Red as Blood, Tanith Lee deconstructed familiar fairy tales, recapturing their original darkness and horror in haunting new interpretations. Behind gilded words and poised princesses, she exposed a sinister world of violence, madness, and dangerous enchantments.

With Redder than Blood, Lee resumes the tradition of twisting tales. Among its nineteen tales, this volume explores unnerving variations of Beauty and the Beast, The Frog Prince, Snow White, and other classics, including three never-before-published stories.

A recognized master fantasist, Tanith Lee has won multiple awards for her craft, including the British Fantasy Award, the World Fantasy Award for Life Achievement, and the Bram Stoker Award for Lifetime Achievement in Horror.
