Fairy Tales in Fiction

Are you a fantasy lover? Novelist Graham Joyce, author of the The Silent Land and winner of the World Fantasy Award, enjoys “fairy fiction,” novels that take their protagonists beyond the simple retelling of the tales we inherited from Hans Christian Anderson and the Brothers Grimm. Writing in The Guardian ("Graham Joyce's Top Ten Fairy Fictions, June 29,2012), he lists his favorites. Here are a few :

Briar Rose by Jane Yolen

The Djinn in the Nightingale’s Eye by A.S. Byatt

The Girl With Glass Feet by Ali Shaw

The Owl Service by Alan Garner

The Stolen Child by Keith Donahue
