    "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
