    A good collection of stories for fans of "Alice in Wonderland" and "Alice Through the Looking Glass". Like most short story collections, there were a handful I couldn't get into, but the ones that I liked were quite fantastic, for a range of reasons. There was fantasy, drama, character...

    This anthology had a great mix of stories, managing to evoke Wonderland while striking a variety of notes. My favorites of the bunch were C. S. E. Cooney's whimsical piece and Seanan McGuire's, which reminded me of the things I liked about "Every Heart a Doorway." Recommended. ...

    Ellen Datlow has managed to corral a book full of stories and poems that deal in one fashion or another with Alice in Wonderland. Some of the tales are sad, some, are creepy, some are outrageous, but all have Wonderland in their DNA. The poems that open and close the books are nice tou...

    Review courtesy of All Things Urban Fantasy. MAD HATTERS AND MARCH HARES is a short story anthology inspired by Alice in Wonderland. Edited by Ellen Datlow, the anthology twists Alice in Wonderland into stories about a commercialized Wonderland, a grieving mother, a cat turned human...

    While I really enjoyed some of the stories a lot (Jane Yolen, Catherynne M. Valente, Katherine Vaz), the topic of Wonderland lends itself to weirdness, which - while not a bad thing, per se - can become a bit much as you read 17 stories and poems all written by different authors. I fee...

    Mon avis en Franšais My English review This anthology gathers poems and short stories related to the theme of Alice in Wonderland. I find the idea really great and I was really curious to get started! When I read anthologies, I usually offer a really short review by story but gi...

    The source material has always been a bit more annoying to me than treasured, except for some of the Tenniel illustrations. Stories derived from the setting are less likely to appeal. I did like the Yolen, and really like the McGuire and the Vaz. Duncan's story I appreciated for its fo...

    If you're a fan of Alice and her adventures in Wonderland this is other writers take on the characters, alternate rifts and parallel universes. Writer fan fiction. Some a bit gruesome and some quite fun and some decent poetry thrown in as well. ...

    Ellen Datlow professes a love for Lewis Carroll's Alice books (as most interesting and intelligent people do). She has compiled a collection of short stories, most of them with a sinister air, that touch on some aspect of Carroll's work, called it Mad Hatters and March Hares, and exc...

    I love the Alice books and thought this would be fun. It was but I was shocked by so many of the stories being horror. Looking at the cover maybe I should have guessed, but it just didn't occur to me. I liked some of the stories more than others of course. My favorite was the Catherynn...

    I enjoyed this book. I think many of the stories really captured the surrealism of Alice and captured the darkness without it becoming a dystopian cliche. It even managed to overcome my inborn dislike of short story compilations! Now if only I could find a full length novel that does t...

    I think it took me a decade to listen to all of these stories. Like most anthologies, I liked some of them quite a lot and others not so much. Some seemed to just take the excuse of being about wonderland to dash non-sense on a page and call it 'artistic.' The narrators did a lovely jo...

    This was a nice anthology but the two stories that really stuck out were ?Sentence Like a Saturday? by Seanan McGuire who's writing I've enjoyed before and ?Moon, Memory, Muchness? by Katherine Vaz which makes me eager to read more of her writing. ...

    This is fan fiction at its best if you like a bit of horror and like the Alice in Wonderland characters. This is a collection of stories from a variety of authors who have taken Carroll's world in new directions, some of which work well and some of which don't works so well. However, w...

    I really wanted to like this book and its stories, but I couldn't. It's not the writers fault, I just really don't like the whole 'Alice In Wonderland' story. And when new stories are written about it or written so that the characters are in the world, I give them a try but nine times ...
