Welcoming the Fairy Tale Review

We’re hugely happy to welcome our latest press: Fairy Tale Review. Founder Kate Bernheimer (whose own new collection, Horse, Flower, Bird, just came out from the excellent Coffee House Press) has done wonders putting this beautiful object together and we’re incredibly pleased to be able to present them as DRM-free PDF ebooks.

You can download the first issue, The Blue Issue, for free here or on FTR’s site (where the print versions are only $7). The rest of the issues are an incredible bargain at $2.99 each—or you can get all five (yes, including the freebie) for $9.99!

The new issue, The Red Issue, devoted to “Little Red Riding Hood” and the first theme issue, should go up within a week or two.

Last week we quietly added three books from Fairy Tale Review Press—again at the incredible price of $2.99 each. FTR Press produces beautiful paper editions and it makes me very happy to be able to make the PDF ebooks available to readers everywhere. Some of whom are probably going to have to spring for the paper editions, too, once they see how pretty these are.

Here are the three books we added last week:

Pilot by Johannes Göransson
PILOT (“JOHANN THE CAROUSEL HORSE”) is an assemblage, a book of nursery rhymes gone wrong in translation. Its strange characters, abandoned from other texts, include Lilja, the Pearls of Stockholm and assorted imperiled girls.

Changing by Lily Hoang
PEN/Beyond Margins Award Winner
At once a fairy tale, a fortune, and a translation told through the I Ching, Vietnamese-American author Lily Hoang’s Changing is a ghostly and miniature novel.

Whitework by Ashley McWaters
The poems in WHITEWORK, Ashley McWaters’ debut collection, explore sewing as synecdoche for the whole of women’s work, particularly the creative work traditionally deemed acceptable for women.

This also means we’ve fixed some of our import/uploady problems—but, hey, there are more!—and that we can start talking to the other presses who’ve contacted us. There might be a lull in additions, then we will add more more more!
