    This anthology had a great mix of stories, managing to evoke Wonderland while striking a variety of notes. My favorites of the bunch were C. S. E. Cooney's whimsical piece and Seanan McGuire's, which reminded me of the things I liked about "Every Heart a Doorway." Recommended. ...

    Here's an anthology where several authors give their take on Alice in Wonderland stories: Gentle Alice, by Kris Dikeman: This is a shape poem, based on a cup of tea. My Own Invention, by Delia Sherman: The White Knight finds somebody who he thinks at first is yet another Alice, b...

    Anthologies are always difficult because they are meant to apple to so many different people, there are bound to be some that you don't connect with. However I am delighted to say that I enjoyed if not fell in love with all but a couple of these tales. Such a wonderful mix, everythi...

    Ellen Datlow has managed to corral a book full of stories and poems that deal in one fashion or another with Alice in Wonderland. Some of the tales are sad, some, are creepy, some are outrageous, but all have Wonderland in their DNA. The poems that open and close the books are nice tou...

    If you're a fan of Alice and her adventures in Wonderland this is other writers take on the characters, alternate rifts and parallel universes. Writer fan fiction. Some a bit gruesome and some quite fun and some decent poetry thrown in as well. ...

    A good collection of stories for fans of "Alice in Wonderland" and "Alice Through the Looking Glass". Like most short story collections, there were a handful I couldn't get into, but the ones that I liked were quite fantastic, for a range of reasons. There was fantasy, drama, character...

    Mad Hatter and March Hares is a collection of original short stories written by various authors inspired by Alice in Wonderland and the characters within. They range from fun and fantastical to dark and sinister. While they were all extremely well written, I feel I didn't appreciate th...

    I love the Alice books and thought this would be fun. It was but I was shocked by so many of the stories being horror. Looking at the cover maybe I should have guessed, but it just didn't occur to me. I liked some of the stories more than others of course. My favorite was the Catherynn...

    I enjoyed this book. I think many of the stories really captured the surrealism of Alice and captured the darkness without it becoming a dystopian cliche. It even managed to overcome my inborn dislike of short story compilations! Now if only I could find a full length novel that does t...

    Definitely five stars!All of these stories or poems were very creative and with a lot of characters to play with from the Alice in Wonderland world we were able to see different possible aspects of them.Everyone's view was unique and brought something more to my Alice experience.A good...

    This is fan fiction at its best if you like a bit of horror and like the Alice in Wonderland characters. This is a collection of stories from a variety of authors who have taken Carroll's world in new directions, some of which work well and some of which don't works so well. However, w...

    The source material has always been a bit more annoying to me than treasured, except for some of the Tenniel illustrations. Stories derived from the setting are less likely to appeal. I did like the Yolen, and really like the McGuire and the Vaz. Duncan's story I appreciated for its fo...

    Abandoned after reading the first few pages of the first few short stories. Note to writers: please don't try to imitate Lewis Carroll; it's just not possible and you're just going to embarrass yourselves. ...

    Just picked this book because it was available. I'm not a huge fan of "Alice in Wonderland", so I wasn't expecting much from these stories. It was really just something portable to listen to while I work. Some of the stories were quite disturbing. Definitely NOT a book for children! ...

    Goodreads giveaway winner...Thank you! ...

    The stories are all pretty sad, not much happiness here with several lacking any fantastic elements whatsoever. OK but a bit too dismal. ...

    Uneven, but some good stories. I think a collection like this depends on your love of the original work. I'm glad I reread the original Alice stories first. ...

    By finished, I mean abandoned. I tried two stories and both were inane. The best part about this book is the title and the poem on the first page. Ah well. Life is filled with disappointments. ...

    Abandoned after reading the first few pages of the first few short stories. Note to writers: please don't try to imitate Lewis Carroll; it's just not possible and you're just going to embarrass yourselves. ...

    Just picked this book because it was available. I'm not a huge fan of "Alice in Wonderland", so I wasn't expecting much from these stories. It was really just something portable to listen to while I work. Some of the stories were quite disturbing. Definitely NOT a book for children! ...

    Goodreads giveaway winner...Thank you! ...

    The stories are all pretty sad, not much happiness here with several lacking any fantastic elements whatsoever. OK but a bit too dismal. ...

    Uneven, but some good stories. I think a collection like this depends on your love of the original work. I'm glad I reread the original Alice stories first. ...

    I love the Alice books and thought this would be fun. It was but I was shocked by so many of the stories being horror. Looking at the cover maybe I should have guessed, but it just didn't occur to me. I liked some of the stories more than others of course. My favorite was the Catherynn...

    I enjoyed this book. I think many of the stories really captured the surrealism of Alice and captured the darkness without it becoming a dystopian cliche. It even managed to overcome my inborn dislike of short story compilations! Now if only I could find a full length novel that does t...

    Definitely five stars!All of these stories or poems were very creative and with a lot of characters to play with from the Alice in Wonderland world we were able to see different possible aspects of them.Everyone's view was unique and brought something more to my Alice experience.A good...

    Ellen Datlow has managed to corral a book full of stories and poems that deal in one fashion or another with Alice in Wonderland. Some of the tales are sad, some, are creepy, some are outrageous, but all have Wonderland in their DNA. The poems that open and close the books are nice tou...

    This is fan fiction at its best if you like a bit of horror and like the Alice in Wonderland characters. This is a collection of stories from a variety of authors who have taken Carroll's world in new directions, some of which work well and some of which don't works so well. However, w...

    Abandoned after reading the first few pages of the first few short stories. Note to writers: please don't try to imitate Lewis Carroll; it's just not possible and you're just going to embarrass yourselves. ...

    Just picked this book because it was available. I'm not a huge fan of "Alice in Wonderland", so I wasn't expecting much from these stories. It was really just something portable to listen to while I work. Some of the stories were quite disturbing. Definitely NOT a book for children! ...

    Goodreads giveaway winner...Thank you! ...

    The stories are all pretty sad, not much happiness here with several lacking any fantastic elements whatsoever. OK but a bit too dismal. ...

    Uneven, but some good stories. I think a collection like this depends on your love of the original work. I'm glad I reread the original Alice stories first. ...

    By finished, I mean abandoned. I tried two stories and both were inane. The best part about this book is the title and the poem on the first page. Ah well. Life is filled with disappointments. ...

    Some of the weirdest and creepiest Wonderland tellings I have ever read. ...

    DNF I really tried to get myself to read this anthology. Sadly, nothing worked. My interest just kept on waning and waning with each story. And some of them are rather unique but just failed to retain my attention. I am fascinated about the short stories regarding Alice In Wonder...

    I always enjoy re imaginings of well known stories, giving new perspectives and insights to tales that are entrenched in our culture. These stories mostly play on the undercurrent of surrealism and horror that was in the original story, bringing to the forefront the absurdity and terro...

    Just picked this book because it was available. I'm not a huge fan of "Alice in Wonderland", so I wasn't expecting much from these stories. It was really just something portable to listen to while I work. Some of the stories were quite disturbing. Definitely NOT a book for children! ...

    This anthology had a great mix of stories, managing to evoke Wonderland while striking a variety of notes. My favorites of the bunch were C. S. E. Cooney's whimsical piece and Seanan McGuire's, which reminded me of the things I liked about "Every Heart a Doorway." Recommended. ...

    Here's an anthology where several authors give their take on Alice in Wonderland stories: Gentle Alice, by Kris Dikeman: This is a shape poem, based on a cup of tea. My Own Invention, by Delia Sherman: The White Knight finds somebody who he thinks at first is yet another Alice, b...

    Anthologies are always difficult because they are meant to apple to so many different people, there are bound to be some that you don't connect with. However I am delighted to say that I enjoyed if not fell in love with all but a couple of these tales. Such a wonderful mix, everythi...

    Ellen Datlow has managed to corral a book full of stories and poems that deal in one fashion or another with Alice in Wonderland. Some of the tales are sad, some, are creepy, some are outrageous, but all have Wonderland in their DNA. The poems that open and close the books are nice tou...

    If you're a fan of Alice and her adventures in Wonderland this is other writers take on the characters, alternate rifts and parallel universes. Writer fan fiction. Some a bit gruesome and some quite fun and some decent poetry thrown in as well. ...

    A good collection of stories for fans of "Alice in Wonderland" and "Alice Through the Looking Glass". Like most short story collections, there were a handful I couldn't get into, but the ones that I liked were quite fantastic, for a range of reasons. There was fantasy, drama, character...

    I love the Alice books and thought this would be fun. It was but I was shocked by so many of the stories being horror. Looking at the cover maybe I should have guessed, but it just didn't occur to me. I liked some of the stories more than others of course. My favorite was the Catherynn...

    I enjoyed this book. I think many of the stories really captured the surrealism of Alice and captured the darkness without it becoming a dystopian cliche. It even managed to overcome my inborn dislike of short story compilations! Now if only I could find a full length novel that does t...

    The stories are all pretty sad, not much happiness here with several lacking any fantastic elements whatsoever. OK but a bit too dismal. ...

    Uneven, but some good stories. I think a collection like this depends on your love of the original work. I'm glad I reread the original Alice stories first. ...
