A Hundred And One Tales, and The New Brothers Grimm
For the last few years, I've been working on a weekly fairy tale project called A Thousand And One Tales (previously posted here at 25 tales, 50 tales, and 75 tales), which has now reached Tale #101 with A Story In The Afternoon, a retelling of Little Red Riding Hood. To celebrate this arbitrary milestone, I put together a remix/cut-up project of old Brothers Grimm tales and made 13 new Brothers Grimm tales (The 1st New Tale, The 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 5th, 6th, 7th, 8th, 9th, 10th, 11th, 12th, 13th). Meanwhile, A Thousand And One Tales continues with Tale #102: You Don’t Have To Read This, But I Hope You Do, a retelling of another famous tale.

They were all made using sentences from the Jack Zipes translations used in The Complete Fairy Tales collection, published in 2007 by Vintage, and various minor changes to nouns, tenses, names, etc, were made to keep things consistent.

Also, if anyone wants even more things to read, here's a full list of the tales in my Thousand And One Tales project that have been published so far (with a star next to the ones I think are probably the fifteen or so best ones)
