This title presents an annual journal devoted to fairy tales, contemporary and historical.Each issue of Fairy Tale Review contains poetry, fiction, and essays that either address the abiding influence of fairy tales on contemporary literature and culture, or are themselves contemporary fairy tales in prose or verse.

Stories from the first two issues have been noted or chosen for republication in Best New American Writers 2006 and Best American Short Stories 2005 . Seven stories and seven poems in all have been nominated for the Pushcart Prize.The third volume, The Violet Issue , contains work by Kim Addonizio, Don Mee Choi, Lucy Corin, Tracy Daugherty, Espido Freire, Toshiya Kamei, Sarah Hannah, Lily Hoang, Anna Maria Hong, Kim Hyesoon, Jeffrey Levine, Lisa Olstein, David Petruzelli, Natania Rosenfeld, Aurelie Sheehan, Richard Siken, Kieran Suckling, Lee Upton, and Julie Marie Wade.
