These Children Who Come at You with Knives, and Other Fairy Tales: Stories - Jim Knipfel And it all sounded so promising... retellings of fairy tales with a twist. What's not to like?
The first one was okay. The second was eh. The third wasn't much better.

The best part of the book? The preface.
When the thing goes downhill after the part that most people skip, then you know you've got a winner. Chalk it up as another wasted book for me.
