Summary

Twenty curses, old and new, from best-selling fantasy authors such as Neil Gaiman, Karen Joy Fowler, Christina Henry, M.R. Carey, and Charlie Jane Anders.

All the Better to Read You With

It's a prick of blood, the bite of an apple, the evil eye, a wedding ring, or a pair of red shoes. Curses come in all shapes and sizes, and they can happen to anyone, not just those of us with unpopular step-parents....

Here you'll find unique twists on curses, from fairy tale classics to brand-new hexes of the modern world - expect new monsters and mythologies as well as twists on well-loved fables. Stories to shock and stories of warning, stories of monsters and stories of magic.

Fabulously raw fairytales

Fantastic book for any lovers of Grimms tales etc, and but broad enough to entice readers who enjoy modern supernatural thrillers with a touch of the macabre.

A bit hit and miss

Some great and clever stories, some just gratuitously gross. Skipped a few because they didn't hold my attention, but gave 4 stars for the stories I enjoyed.

Amazing

My favourite listen in forever- so clever and darkly wicked. A really enjoyable listen that I started from the beginning as soon as it ended.

exceptional collection of stories

really fantastic lot of stories. I skipped a couple that weren't my taste but read all but 3 tales. My favourites were snow white blood red, Wendy darling and the hansel and gretle reimagining

Brilliant short stories. Couldn't stop listening

These short stories are fantastically written and performed. Some are better and more creepy than others but I enjoyed the whole book.

A great collection

Weird, scary and downright bizarre. I loved it! Such a great listen with fantastic narrators. Would definitely recommend to anyone looking for something different.
