“A classy, smart, and entertaining volume of stories put together with consummate care—and featuring the best and most exciting fantasy writers working in the field today.” – Jeff VanderMeer, New York Times-bestselling author of the Southern Reach trilogy

"The modern revival of fairy tale fiction for adults began in the 20th century (with the stories of Angela Carter and Tanith Lee), and The Starlit Wood is proof that the revival is still going strong. Editors Parisien and Wolfe have brought a wide range of writers together to blaze new trails through the dark of the woods. Whether you're passionate about fairy tales, like I am, or haven't read them since childhood, I recommend this excellent anthology. I simply loved it." (Terri Windling, World Fantasy Award-winning editor of the Snow White, Blood Red series)

"Lots of strange and wonderful goings-on in The Starlit Wood. Fairy tales you thought you’d left behind in childhood are back in some very poignant, sly and original versions that will touch the Wow in most readers." (Jonathan Carroll, World Fantasy-Award winning author)

"This anthology is consistent throughout, with well-crafted writing and a tantalizing taste of each author’s unique journey into reimagining classic fairy tales for a new audience." (Booklist)

"A great pick for readers looking for a fresh, diverse spin on standard fairy tales." (Library Journal)

"A rich sample of what awaits us in the world of fairy tales...well worth making time to read." (Publishers Weekly)
