From Modern Mythcraft to Magical Surrealism



The Mermaid’s Madness by Jim C. Hines

The first of this series, The Stepsister Scheme, an unexpectedly effective mixture of light and dark. These alternate takes on fairy tales mix the clever and the horrific. The tone of the narration is mostly bouncy, with some jokes, but there is a sense that these characters are real—their lives have depth and sometimes tragedy. The Mermaid’s Madnessis a strong mix of magic and adventure, with a number of well-portrayed and involving women characters at its heart.
