If you're willing to email me your name and address, I'll send you my copy of Burning Your Boats.  I was going to give it away anyway!  It'd be nice to give it to someone who'll actually appreciate it!

Wow is right.
That's the way I felt when I saw her name in your comment.  No one else I talk to has ever heard of her, and I rarely find her books in the used book stores.  I always look, though.  I'm going to look for The Bloody Chamber now.  Thanks!

Wow!  You like Angela Carter too???  Awesome!  Most people have never heard of her!  It's cool to find someone else who likes her!  Back in college, when I first discovered her, a friend of mine saw me reading The Bloody Chamber, and she ended up falling in love with Carter's writing too--so much so that her graduate thesis was on Carter's writings!

I'll have to look for those, Jemmie.
I have a book by Angela Carter that I love.  Heroes and Villains, I believe.   I recently found out she is dead, too bad, but I'm going to try to read more of her work.

Angela Carter did some really dark versions of fairy tales.  Her book was called The Bloody Chamber.  She also has other books (most recent one I've read is a collection of short stories called Burning Your Boats--some of which are from her Bloody Chamber book).

So informative!
I never knew New American Writing (which I read on occasion) was once called Oink!

Ah, that's so nice to hear.
Flattery will get you everywhere.  Thanks.  I love the blogs of both of you, too.

Witch - I'm always looking for a distraction from work!  When I see your posts, I head right for them!  :-)

Witch...
You're on my favorites of course silly one! As far as the fairy tales , there was a much darker version someone did... can't recall who right now.

How do you two get here so fast?
Just curious.   The movie could be interesting if it's cast right, hey?  I like the fairy tales, too, but some of them should be labeled Grimms' Grim Tales.  Thanks for reading.

Witch...

I love Grimms fairy tales!  Thanks for info as always.

There's a movie that's been in the works forever that's supposedly loosely based on the Brothers Grimm.  It's directed by Terry Gilliam, so I really want to see it.  I think there have been production problems.
