Fairy-Tale Files, published once weekly, feature three variations of a fairy tale chosen by one of Fairy Tale Review’s Assistant Editors.
#25 The Swan Gondola
Like a certain infamous wizard, the protagonist of Timothy Schaffert’s latest novel hails from Omaha, practices ventriloquism, and crashes a hot-air balloon.
#26 Tin Man
Starring Zooey Deschanel as DG, this Syfy Channel miniseries garnered nine Emmy award nominations and was the highest-rated miniseries of 2007.
#27 John Vanderslice
Lightning strikes, dust storms, parades, codeine: John Vanderslice’s hauntingly sparse sixth album takes a bird’s eye view of dystopian American politics.
This edition of Fairy-Tale Files is brought to you by Fairy Tale Review Managing Editor Laura I. Miller.
