    This collection gathers a number of Jane Yolen's short stories from other anthologies, except for one new story (a riff on Poe). Though Yolen most of her 300 books are for kid readers, I don't think this collection is for the young. I've read most of these stories over the past thre...

    I?ve loved Jane Yolen?s writing since I was a youth. There?s something delicious about the way she takes old tropes, myths, or fairy tales and does a compelling?yet often twisted?take on them. (Her book Dragon?s Blood, for example, is the classic ?kid raises a dragon egg?...

    The Emerald Circus by Jane Yolen is a collection of short stories with an introduction to the works done by author Holly Black. I do believe some of these by Yolen at least have been published before but I was not familiar with her work so the entire collection was new to me. I'm not a...

    This is a mixed bag of stories, in all genres and styles, all combined by their (sometimes tenuous) links to original fairy tales, myths, and legends. These short retellings received a mixture of responses for me, with some being deceptively clever and poignantly written, to others fal...

    ??You see, my dear ice witch, I have had the love of children from all over the world because of my stories. A child?s love is the perfect love, for it is given with a whole heart." After The Night Circus and its success, books that contain this word have multiplied by the d...
