Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Gaiman and company sift through the lost brothers, badgers, evil queens, and animated puppets of folk stories and fairy tales to discover the new and revealing, and Kellgren gives voice to what will surely become the first classic of the Twitterverse.” AudioFile
“I admit I was at first doubtful at the resulting quality of the story. Many a time have I tried playing that game where a person writes a sentence, and then another one continues it, and so on, and the resulting plot almost always turned out to be messy. Because of this, I steeled myself for what the outcome might be. After almost two hours, I resurfaced quite reluctantly into the normal world. Needless to say, I really loved it.” thecodenameblue.wordpress.com
