Twisted Fairy Tales: "Alice in tumblr-Land"

Tim Manley reads from "Alice in tumblr-Land" and describes the process of bringing it to book shelves.

As we recently learned from the author of "The Grimm Conclusion" (on Halloween), today's audiences like a little modern spicing-up with their traditional fairy tales.

Witness the cascade of TV shows putting modern spins on old stories ("Sleepy Hollow," "Once Upon a Time"). 

Tim Manley began mining this vein a while back with his blog "Fairy Tales for Twenty-Somethings," and he continues his efforts in the book Alice in tumblr-Land

Imagine princes and princesses sending text messages, or the iPhone voice Siri arriving instead of a fairy godmother.
