Enchanted Tales

By On Jul 24 2011, 8:00 am


Long before Steven King or Dean Koontz there were…fairytales.

Yep, fairytales.

But these weren’t the sanitized, feel-good stories we grew up on, where granny was locked in the back room instead of eaten, or the Prince always saved the day. Usually there were no happy-ever-afters. I’m talking the original stories, full of violence, sexual innuendo and consequences such as having to cut your feet off so as to be able to stop dancing.

But they have to earn it, because in fairytales, like life, nothing worth keeping comes without a fight, or the potential for disaster.

Here was a very young girl who [...]
