From master anthologist Ellen Datlow comes an all-original of weird tales inspired by the strangeness of Lewis Carroll’s Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking-Glass and What Alice Found There.

Between the hallucinogenic, weird, imaginative wordplay and the brilliant mathematical puzzles and social satire, Alice has been read, enjoyed, and savored by every generation since its publication. Datlow asked eighteen of the most brilliant and acclaimed writers working today to dream up stories inspired by all the strange events and surreal characters found in Wonderland.

Featuring stories and poems from Seanan McGuire, Jane Yolen, Catherynne M. Valente, Delia Sherman, Genevieve Valentine, Priya Sharma, Stephen Graham Jones, Richard Bowes, Jeffrey Ford, Angela Slatter, Andy Duncan, C.S.E. Cooney, Matthew Kressel, Kris Dikeman, Jane Yolen, Kaaron Warren, Ysbeau Wilce, and Katherine Vaz.

Praise for Mad Hatters and March Hares

Praise for The Doll Collection:

“Dolls, like clowns, are one of the totems of childhood that somehow seem sinister in adulthood. Award-winning editor Datlow has arranged a strong, themed anthology without ever resorting to the "evil doll" cliché of horror movies. There isn't a bad story in the bunch.” —Library Journal

"Truly amazing authors takes readers into that dark and frightening 'doll' world, and for those who are not yet scared silly of the porcelain faces, you will be after this . . . Five stars . . . and leave on the lights." —Suspense Magazine

Praise for Ellen Datlow's anthologies:

"A superb sampling of urban fantasy... You will have fun with all twenty stories."—Booklist on Naked City

"This is a treasure chest. Open it and revel in its riches."—Kirkus Reviews, starred review on The Faery Reel

"An often sophisticated view of the world [and] a real sense of how powerful nature can be in its various guises." —School Library Journal on The Green Man

"An enchanting, witty collection of original stories... This superior volume proves that the notion of modern-day Grimms, Andersens, and Wildes isn't just a fairy tale."—Publishers Weekly on Black Thorn, White Rose

"Highly readable and thought-provoking...A solid choice, particularly where sophisticated fractured fairy tales are popular." —School Library Journal on Troll's Eye View

"There are some genuine gems in this enticing collection.... A tasty treat for fantasy fans." —Booklist on The Green Man

"The stories run the gamut from humorous to tragic... Despite differing styles, the stories flow smoothly from one to the next. Windling's fascinating introduction details the history of shape-shifters in legends from around the globe. This collection will appeal to fantasy lovers as it provides both stories by beloved authors and exciting new voices to discover." -- School Library Journal on The Beastly Bride

"A potent brew of fairy tales spiked with feminism. These intoxicating delights are not meant for children or the timid... No matter which tour you take through this frightening and dark enchanted wood, Datlow and Windling again prove themselves the best guides." —Kirkus Reviews on Black Thorn, White Rose
