There’s also nice world building. Some of the stories, like those by Anthea Sharp and Christine Pope, take place in between “episodes” of their long-running series, while others are “one-offs” the writers admit were a genre stretch. Moreover, while it’s possible to see some of the influences on the stories, the writers have augmented their ideas with other bits and pieces of lore and myth and folktale. And so, we have Grimm’s fairy tales coexisting with Pinocchio and Washington Irving’s Sleepy Hollow. Wrapping a science fiction skin around these old stories makes them feel as shiny as the titanium hull of a space craft.
If you like science fiction and fairy tales, this is a boxed set you NEED to get.
The story had a Ready Player One feel to it. It kept me turning those pages and I was never disappointed with each turn. I wanted to know more about this world and about Loxley. Like her story, her background. More importantly I wanted to know more about Ghost and his story. I know there is a good one there.
stories. A quick read. Great characters. Among my favorites was main character like Princess Estrella and Damryn secondary ones such as Imai and Izar in By the light of a distant star by Jenna Elizabeth Johnson.
Most leaving me wanting more.

This is an anthology of well known fairy tales but written from a scifi background and it was fun figuring out which fairy tale each story was going to be inspired by. My favourite had to be Echo by Nikki Jefford which was a modern Pinocchio story
Review for Echo by Nikki Jefford
Echo is a Pinocchio inspired story, but with a twist on the storyline and characters which is brilliant.
Nikki Jefford has done an amazing job creating this story, with Echo being just a mischievous and constantly seeking adventure, as the character the story was inspired by. I highly recommend this beautiful story.
