Waiting On Wednesday #146 - The Starlit Wood; New Fairy Tales

Waiting On Wednesday, where we put the spotlight on upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating, is hosted by Jill at Breaking The Spine.

This week's choice is -


The Starlit Wood: New Fairy Tales - ed. Navah Wolfe & Dominik Parisien 
Publisher - Saga Press
Release date - October 2016
Find - Goodreads

Once upon a time in the desert, in a tower, on a spaceship, in the Other Country...

For centuries, storytellers have crafted timeless tales that have always found a place in our hearts. Here, a new generation of critically acclaimed, award-winning writers have taken up their mantle and shaped traditional and extraordinary fairy tales into something startling and electrifying.

From castles to canyons, a post-human landscape to a pixelated dungeon, from the far future to fantastical realms, The Starlit Wood transforms eighteen stories you thought you knew and takes you on a journey at once unexpected and familiar across time, space, and amazing new worlds.


OMG... This might just turn out to be one of my top ten most anticipated books of 2016 and it's a long wait until October. Just look who the authors are!


Most of these authors are ones that I would read a shopping list if the published them and I think there's only three authors that I haven't read anything by them before.
