I had met her at 16, when I was still a boy really, and Christine was basically a very hardworking, honest person. I had learned to live with the risk, but it must have been very difficult for Christine who had never had any experience of this. But I suppose it is easy to see the answers in hindsight

1h 34min Comedy, Crime, Mystery 6 March 1992 (USA). A group of bumbling Americans in Europe get mixed up in a murder while trying to collect a reward for a lost dog in this frantic farce. Director: Eugene Levy. I thought it was a funny title, and stayed to see it what it was about. Soon I was laughing, then I discovered it was the same entertaining comedy, and stayed on until the film ended, and liked it more.

In the hands of some of the most respected mystery writers of the decade, stories such as the confinement of Rapunzel, the peril of Little Red Riding Hood, and many others are given a compelling, suspenseful twist. But unlike the well-known traditional tales, the endings found here aren't always the familiar ones you remember - or expect.In Sharyn McCrumb's "Gerda's Sense of Snow," an ingenious retelling of a classic, Gerda must rescue her best friend Kay from the Snow Queen, a crack dealer whose white powder erases pain - and makes the user her slave.A troubled teen assumes seven separate personalities after her wicked stepmother, determined to be the fairest of them all, drives her to an isolated cabin - and to dangerous deeds - in "Heptagon" by Joan Hess.In a charmingly contemporary adaptation of "The Six Swans," a country singer tries to outwit his agent by hiding a promising new act in a secluded cabin. But the agent has devious plans of her own... in "Swan Song" by John Lutz.And an uproarious new version of "The Emperor's New Clothes," by Simon Brett, has a top gangster finding salvation in televangelism - until a young gang member reveals the leader's true nature...

Fairy tales are some of my favorite types of stories. Naturally, crimes abound in these seemingly innocent tales purported to be for children. Various mystery writers have retold several well-know fairy tales using the form of the mystery genre.
The writers range from Bill Crider to Gillian Roberts. Many of the stories are average, and this audio version omits some that piqued my curiosity. For instance, Joan Hess's story about Snow White is absent. However, various narrators lend their excellent talents to this collection. This fact makes the listening experience enjoyable. My favorite stories in the collection include:

1. "After Happily Ever," by Gilian Roberts. This stoory is told from the perspective of one of Cinderella's stepsisters. She's determined to set the record straight. Is Cinderella as demure and innocent as has been reported? You decide. Barbara Rosenblat narrates this story with superb feeling.
2. "Now, Fetch Me an Ax". An English author awaits the arrival of a murderer at her door.
3. "The Brave Little Costume Designer," by Less Roberts. A hilareous spoof on Grimms' Brothers, "The Brave Little Tailor." A Broadway costume designer becomes entangled with the Mafia!
4. "Of Love and Justice." Another Cinderella variation in which guardsman at the palace must solve a murder. This story is poignant and thought-provoking.
5. "It Happened at Grandmother's House," by Bill Crider. Annother hilareous tale in which the wolf that pursues Little Red Riding-Hood is a teenage werewolf.

All in all, a good collection. God bless.

A very good mix of stories about fairy tale characters either after the ending of the tales, or updated stories based on the characters. Virtually every story was well written.

Loved it!

In this decade (God, I'm old), I have begun to like anthologies. I went back this far to read a short story by an author I really like, Sharyn McCrumb. I read all of the other stories as well, and I have mixed feelings about them.

Most of the stories were good or interesting and sometimes both. However, like the Brothers Grimm stories on which they are based, some are a bit too close to the horror side of things for my taste. Some are depressing. Some are funny, but most are not in the way I prefer. A few stories were good enough to keep me reading. They're all very short, too.

Gillian Roberts - After Happily Ever
Sorta fun take on the Cinderella story.

John Breen - Clever Hans
Slightly fun, jilted lover charged with murder. Not great.

Joan Hess - Heptagon
Multiple personalities of the seven dwarves in one murderess. Not for me.

Bill Crider - It Happened at Grandmother's House
Teen werewolf rescues Grandma. Likable.

Simon Clark - Now Fetch Me An Ax
Creepy version of Frog Prince.

Mat Coward - Old Sultan
Honor and loyalty in the mob. So-so.

Elizabeth Engstrom - Harvest Home
Hansel and Gretel sold by wicked step-mother. Not for me.

William DeAndrea - Prince Charming
Kidnapping. Annh.

Jane Haddam - Rapunzel
Terribly disturbing, but written well. Horror.

Gary Braunbeck - Resurrection Joe
Loved this story and this character. Sort of Hansel and Gretel-ish.

Brenden DuBois - Rapunzel's Revenge
Liked this one about a kidnapped geek and his rescue by his wife.

Edwin Hoch - Snow White and Eleven Dwarves
Good story. Humorous but not believable crime story.

John Lutz - Swan Song
Country music agents fight it out. Didn't care about it.

John Helfers - The Better to Eat You With
Good, but grim version of the Red Riding Hood story. Natural setting.

Ed Gormon - Of the Fog
Creepy. Just creepy. Well-written horror.

Les Roberts - The Brave Little Costume Designer
The mob meets its unlikely match. Liked it. Fun.

Simon Brett - The Emperor's New Clothes
Mobsters turn over a new leaf. OK.

Peter Crowther - The Musicians of Bremen, GA
Sad little story of jazz and lost talent.

Audrey Peterson - Anniversary Ball
Cinderella a year later. So-so.

Janet Dawson - Invisible Time
Hansel & Gretel downtown and homeless. Very sad.

Kristine K. Rusch - Love and Justice
Cinderella behind the myth. Sad ending.

Ann Wingate - The Twelve Dancing Princesses, Revisited
Mob bosses and their offspring.

Doug Allyn - Thousandfurs
More mob, but less happy. Waste of time.

Sharyn McCrumb - Gerda's Sense of Snow
The Snow Queen. Sharyn McCrumb is a favorite author, but her short stories from this time period disappoint. Unbelievable and convenient jumps in the story-line. Dissatisfying. See her Ballad series of novels for the good stuff.

This is a sensational collection of short stories which are either parodies of classic fairy tales or short stories that the editors have found where they can see comparisons between the modern day and Black Forrest characters. Like any collection by various writers the quality varies for each story, in fact to be honest some especially the last few are pretty average but there are a substantial number of brilliant literature masterpieces.

Find out the truth about Cinderella with the story After Happily Ever. This is a superb spin on the classic tale. Of the Fog is my favourite, a sensational thriller about a guy who is targeted for vengeance by a hitchhiker who he decides not to stop for. The Better to Eat You With about a guy living in the Minnesotan wilderness who comes upon a plane crash attended by wolves is another great story. It Happened at Grandmother's House gives us an insight into what it's like to be werewolf. Clever Hans is another great tale of an Alaskan cruise gone wrong. Now Fetch Me an Axe takes the reader into the terrified writing of a girl who has just worked out she is about to murdered and has no way of escaping. Prince Charming is a who done it mystery where the hero works out who kidnapped a girl he just met and fancies. Snow White and the Eleven Dwarfs is a superb planning of catching your father's killer who happens to be your evil stepmother while hiding out from her with a group of men. There's other great stories to read as well. This is really a pretty good collection of crime stories. Once Upon a Time I read this and was happy ever after finishing it.
