“When the Sultan has arrived and is at ease, ask that I tell you a story. Do you like stories?”
From Beauty and the Beast to Scheherazade, and Baba Yaga to the North Wind, fairy tales have inspired readers for generations. In Retold, six fables from across the globe are re-imagined--with a subversive twist. This anthology collects six short stories from diverse, feminist, and original perspectives.

- In Her Head, In Her Eyes by Yukimi Ogawa
- Mrs. Yaga by Michal Wojcik
- The Mussel Eater by Octavia Cade
- The Astronomer Who Met the North Wind by Kate Hall
