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. [more inside]
A thousand and one tales is an ongoing and ever-growing collection of new fairy tales and folk tales, with a new story posted every Friday. The 30 stories so far include retellings of famous fairy tales (Ariadne and the Minotaur in The King's Daughter And The King's Son; Cinderella in Lonely Isobel; Bluebeard in The Three Doors And The Fourth); stories about good queens (The Lunar Queen; The King And The Light), bad kings (The King And His Weeping Wife), and even worse fathers (The Wolves In The Woods; The Farmer's Daughters); transformations (The Unhappy Bride); beasts (The Three Sorrowful Sisters; A Long Winter's Night); and the telling of tales itself (Old Tales Are Made New In The Telling).
