"Some Kind of Fairy Tale" by Graham Joyce
My review of Graham Joyce's "Some Kind of Fairy Tale" has been published at Strange Horizons.
This is sort of a weird review, because I totally trashed Joyce's concept - because, conceptually, it's pretty rocky - but he's a really good writer and I'm about to start another of his books, "Silent Land," specifically on the auctorial merits of "Some Kind of Fairy Tale." Sometimes, it's hard to encapsulate everything in a review, since a book is many things - especially when it crosses genre boundaries like "Fairy Tale" does.
So, if you care to, take my review with a grain of salt. For 'tis salty.
