WONDERLAND Edited by Marie O’Regan and Paul Kane

Wonderland: An Anthology of Works Inspired By Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland offers a diverse mix of stories based on Lewis Carroll’s classic. I enjoyed Genevieve Cogman’s “The White Queen’s Pawn.” I’m a fan of Cogman’s Invisible Library series so I appreciated her off-beat approach to Alice’s Wonderland. Jonathan Green’s clever “The Hunting of the Jabberwock” blends elements of Lewis Carroll’s universe with a tricky scam. I’m reading George Mann’s Newbury and Hobbs steam-punk mysteries so I was intrigued by his approach to Wonderland in “About Time” where reality is fluid. L. I. McKinney’s “What Makes a Monster” dabbles in the Dark Side of Wonderland. Events spin out of control in “The White Queen’s Dictum” by James Lovegrove. If you’re looking of an off-beat anthology of surprising stories, give Wonderland a try. Do you have a favorite Wonderland character? GRADE: B

    Looks like an estrogen heavy volume! I like Tweedledum! Tweedledee is a jerk, but Tweedledum is bitchin’!
