Retellings

A folklore education does start to go to one’s head after a while. I’ve soaked up so many fairy tales, ballads, legends, myths, and so on that it’s hardly surprising I should try my hand at that venerable sub-branch of fantasy, the retelling.

Not everything in here is a strict retelling as such. Some are better categorized as mashups, or sequels, or just me picking a fight with my source. But all of them are based on a specific, pre-existing story, which is why I group them here.
