“Once Again Upon a Time” revisits old tales, adding new twists, and also introduces the reader to entirely fresh and innovative concepts. While I certainly enjoyed the previous anthology by Talaria Press, “Quests and Answers”, I feel that the authors outdid themselves here. Ranging from charming little stories like "To Bee or Not to Bee", to dramatic retellings of fairy tale classics such as in "Prussia 1735", or the hard sci-fi of "Aurora", “Once Again” is a wonderful and entertaining collection. Like its description suggests, “Once Again” is certainly a collection of fairy tales, but upgraded and modernized for grownups. And in so doing, the talented writers of Talaria Press have managed to make them just as enjoyable and as enthralling as the stories that we listened to when we were little.
