I was pleased yesterday to get my proof copy of Alternative Renditions. It looks good. Our covers are getting better and better. Are our artists getting competitive? This one looks really good, but we know that the covers for Spooked and Scream are even better.
The book is our fattest yet and the stories are extraordinary. Although they are fairy stories, they are not at all for children. They are written from an adult point of view. The protagonist is not usually the normal one. Sometimes it is the enemy sometimes it is a minor character. Sometimes it is even a mere onlooker. One exception is Goldilocks but even she unusually is portrayed as a horrible adolescent instead of the normal innocent.
It’s a good read, even though I say so myself. It’s the most solid book we’ve done yet.
