All the Better to Read You With

It's a prick of blood, the bite of an apple, the evil eye, a wedding ring, or a pair of red shoes. Curses come in all shapes and sizes, and they can happen to anyone, not just those of us with unpopular step-parents....

Here you'll find unique twists on curses, from fairy tale classics to brand-new hexes of the modern world - expect new monsters and mythologies as well as twists on well-loved fables. Stories to shock and stories of warning, stories of monsters and stories of magic.

Mostly good

There are some really good short stories in this anthology, some of them get really dark, and some should have a trigger warning (Little Red) others were just meh, but that is any anthology. I thought it was solid with a few memorable ones. Worth a read from the local library but not sure it is worth the full retail price.
