Price: $0.99
Each story in Time for Bedlam features something new and something familiar, from tales based on the myths of your childhood to brand new morality plays. These are stories designed to recall the emotions you felt when your parents warned you about the Scissorman, who would chop off your thumb if you kept sucking on it, or the monster under the bed, who would pull you down with it if you wet the mattress one more time. From a post-apocalyptic journey through the land of the Wolves, to a hard-learned lesson for a princess of the deep seas, to a bit of strong therapy for a disobedient child, Time for Bedlam will delight you with its twisted reflections of the stories you know, and enchant you with original tales from some of the most thoughtful fantasists now writing. Includes "Over the River" by Joy Remy Marchand, an honorable mention in The Year's Best Fantasy and Horror 19!

    "Creepy, twisted tales" Time for Bedlam is a collection of new, dark twists on familiar stories, as well as a few originals. This offering from Saltboy Bookmakers is surpisingly strong and cohesive for an anthology if this type. There are no clunkers among these stories. All of them are at least mildly entertaining. There are a few gems, though. "Sugar Shock" by A.C. Wise puts a modern-day spin on Hansel and Gretel. James S. Dorr gives us a whole new kind of fairy godmother in "Cindy", and "The Mongoose" by Justin Gil is a take on Rikki Tiki Tavi. Two stories stand out. "Blood for Blood" by Jennifer Loring is a well-crafted, dark version of the Little Mermaid fairy tale that immediately draws the reader in. Jason Andrew's tale, "New Gods of the Lost Children" stands out as a truly original urban fairy tale, though it feels unfinished. The concept would probably translate well into a novella. If you enjoy dark, entertaining... More > stories, this anthology is worth your time.< Less
