Mad Hatters and March Hares
by Ellen Datlow

View in Library Catalog



I usually end up doling out 3-star ratings to anthologies, but unfortunately, Mad Hatters and March Hares hits below the mark. With a few exceptions ('Moon, Memory, Muchness', 'Eating the Alice Cake', and obviously Seanan McGuire's 'Sentence Like a Saturday'), Hatters and Hares was disenchanting. In fact, that is likely the blame for my dislike: disenchantment. Most of these stories aim to remove the 'wonder' from 'wonderland', to wipe the sugar-coating from the "EAT ME" cookies. While that's albeit a fascinating perspective of Carroll's world, I go to Wonderland to escape reality. I don't want the fantasy erased from the mirror, nearly attainable. This collection, in an analogy, is like a children's anthology of "Hey, kids, did you know that [REDACTED] doesn't exist?!"

Stone Mothers

This book takes place in current time, then jumps to the past. In doing so, it left me wondering what the big secret was in current time. The story slowly unfolds. Even though I was a little lost with what happened to who and when, it was a very good read. I enjoyed the story and actually learned some things about how views have changed over the years concerning those with mental illness.

The classics truly never go out of style! From The Thin Man to The Maltese Falcon, it proves just plain fun to read the originals that the world famous movies are based on! I highly recommend this compilation of unforgettable stories!
