The best writers of our generation retell the classics.

Literature is filled with sexy, deadly, and downright twisted tales. In this collection, award-winning and bestselling authors reimagine their favorite classic stories, ones that have inspired, awed, and enraged them; ones that have become ingrained in modern culture; and ones that have been too long overlooked. They take these stories and boil them down to their bones, and then reassemble them for a new generation of readers.

Today's most acclaimed authors use their own unique styles to rebuild these twelve timeless stories:

Sir Edmund Spenser's The Faerie Queene - Saladin Ahmed

W. W. Jacobs's 'The Monkey's Paw' - Kelley Armstrong

Joseph Sheridan Le Fanu's 'Carmilla' - Holly Black

'Sleeping Beauty' - Neil Gaiman

The Brothers Grimm's 'Rumpelstiltskin' - Kami Garcia

Kate Chopin's The Awakening - Melissa Marr

Rudyard Kipling's 'The Man Who Would Be King' - Garth Nix
