New Theme: Beauty and the Beast

We'll be moving on from our Bluebeard theme and on to "Beauty and the Beast." For this, I want us to get these books:

  • Red as Blood: Tales from the Sisters Grimmer by Tanith Lee

  • Silver Metal Lover by Tanith Lee

The first book is a collection of short retellings. We'll be reading the "Beauty and the Beast" retellings from that and from "The Bloody Chamber" for our first Beauty and the Beast chat. "Silver Metal Lover," which is a sci-fi revision of the traditional Beauty/Beast stories, by Tanith Lee will be our longer selection for the Beauty and the Beast topic.

I would like to schedule the chat for short retellings of the story for the end of this month, so get these books as soon as you can. New and used copies of Silver Metal Lover are easily avaliable. Red as Blood is an out-of-stock book, but used copies are easily avablible. You can find copies at the following sites:


And there's always your local library. Let me know if you have trouble locating any of these books. And give me recs for more Beauty and the Beast retellings that you're aware of. :)
