About TFTS

A couple of years ago, we noticed that fairy tales were becoming a hot topic in popular culture. ABC launched Once Upon a Time, NBC went darker with Grimm, competing Snow White movies were in the pipeline, graphic novels were getting into the genre, and more.

We love fairy tales, and pop culture, so we decided to create The Fairy Tale Site to follow all of these projects and explore the phenomenon. We’ve divided the site by medium – movies, television, books, plays – for easier navigation.

If you run across a project related to fairy tales, be sure to let us know!

Who We Are

Editor in Chief – Cay

Cay lives in the Boston metro area and admits to being a long-standing “pop culture junkie”.  Her favorite shows are  GrimmArrow, The Flash, Lucifer, Blindspot, and Supergirl. Previous obsessions included Chuck, Person of InterestAlias, Lost and The X-Files. Cay’s coworkers find it hard to believe her insistence that she watches only an hour of TV a night because she always seems to know what’s going on no matter what show they are talking about. Her family just thinks that she’s “special”. In the remaining hours that she’s not watching TV or working, Cay can be found reading Entertainment Weekly, cooking, or participating in any one of many outdoor activities.

  1. Liz,

    My first collection of original fairy tales is being published in the fall. Would you be interested in reviewing “Seven Tales” for The Fairy Tale Site?

    I would be happy to send you an advance copy, in print or a pdf galley, whichever you prefer.

    Thanks kindly,
    …Gordon.

    “Seven Tales” by G.C.McRae
    MacDonald Warne, 2015
    ISBN: 97809939183-4-6
    267 pages
    Publication Date: October 7, 2015
    Fiction/Short Stories/Fairy Tales

    A girl who loves sneaking. Seven daughters who all pretend to be the same person. A witch who tricks a man into carving his own children out of stone. And just for good measure, a giant or two, who may or may not be friendly.

    In the Seven Tales, G.C. McRae proves he is a master of the ancient art of storytelling. With shades of 1001 Nights, Hans Christian Andersen and the Brothers Grimm, McRae’s original fairy tales bring a freshness and hilarity to the world of castles and queens.

    • I would LOVE to review your book for our site! I’ll email you my Address for an advance copy. There is nothing I like more than a good fairy tale. Except to be a mermaid some day. 😉

  2. Since we are publicising our books 🙂 …

    Would you be interested in reviewing “Tales from the Wood” for the site?

    http://www.feedaread.com/books/Tales-from-the-Wood-9781786100924.aspx
    http://www.amazon.com/Tales-Wood-Adrian-Farrel/dp/1786100924

    ISBN-13: 978-1786100924

    Tales from the Wood is a collection of eighteen new fairy tales with a conventional feel but a new twist.

    King Carsten of West Hempfenland is unlucky in love. Although both of his marriages seemed fortunate, things didn’t work out for him.

    Peter Pretzel had his feet on backwards. It wasn’t his fault and it was very inconvenient.

    A note written in purple ink was tucked into the frame of the mirror: “To my Niece! Now that I am dead I find I have lost the desire to look at myself quite so often.”

    A proud lord, handsome and skilful, pines away in his tower for his lost love.

    There was once a king with five daughters, each more beautiful than the others. But they had a curious affliction: hairy hands.

  3. I would love to gift you a copy of FAIRY GODMOTHERS OF THE FOUR DIRECTION. We just debuted on Amazon Kindle. http://goo.gl/rUvXm4

    Join Charlotte as she travels the Four Directions to save a Kingdom.

    Fairy tales are like life, filled with insurmountable obstacles and heart breaking tragedies. How did the Prince find Cinderella hidden in the vanishing spell set by her wicked stepmother?

    And then what happened? How did Cinderella transform from a girl into a Princess?

    The Prince shared with Cinderella what he had learned with his teachers the Fairy Godmothers. He explained, “There are many Fairy Godmothers. I studied with a different Fairy Godmother for each cardinal direction.”

    He said, “Each direction is a paradigm for inward knowledge an worldly knowledge. Together the Four Directions form the beginning of the wisdom required to govern a Kingdom.”

    Taking Cinderella’s hand between his warm and steady hands, he said, “The dangers inherent in running a Kingdom are immense. If you’ll agree, I’d like you to study with my teachers.”

    Experience the adventures with Cinderella as she studies with four Fairy Godmothers. In her search for wisdom, will she be initiated into the powers of the Four Directions?

    Regards,
    Jennifer
