1 Day Only: Fairy Tales Reimagined eBook for $2.99

Fairy Tales Reimagined: Essays on New Retellings

Fairy Tales Reimagined: Essays on New Retellings is available as a Kindle ebook for only $2.99 today only.  Amazon has started offering several ebooks each day for $2.99.  This week has featured several titles published by McFarland. The paperback edition is $35.00 so this is a considerable savings. Remember that you don't have to have a Kindle to read a Kindle book, you can load the free software on your PC, Mac, smart phone and other devices. If you buy the book, it stays in your permanent library whether you download it to a device right away or not.

Here is the book description from the publisher.  My own review is also on the product page.  I gave away a copy of this book earlier this year thanks to receiving two from the publisher:

No mere escapist fantasies, the reimagined fairy tales of the late 20th-early 21st centuries reflect the social, political, and cultural truths of our age with insight, intelligence, and complexity. Sixteen essays consider fairy tales recreated through short stories, novels, poetry, and the graphic novel from both best-selling and lesser-known writers, applying a variety of theoretical perspectives, including postmodernism, psychoanalysis, Marxism, feminism, structuralism, queer theory, and gender studies.

To conclude, here's the paperback link if you are interested in that instead although it is regular price.
