Twisted Fairy Tales: "Alice in tumblr-Land"
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.
