Fairy Tales for Writers

The nice folks over at A Midsummer Night’s Press were kind enough to send me a review copy of a new title they thought I might appreciate, and they were right. Lawrence Schimel’s Fairy Tales for Writers is a tiny book (really, more like a booklet) that rewrites old tales, essentially as poems, especially for us writers. They’ve posted two samples on the Web site, so you can go ahead and read “Sleeping Beauty” and “The Little Mermaid” for yourselves. (If I had to plan ahead to celebrate Christmas, and were thinking about stocking stuffers for a writer in my life, Fairy Tales for Writers would seem perfect.)
