Of Roses and Kings, by Melissa Marr


(Alice-in-Wonderland Pastiche) After the events in the story, Alice became the new Red Queen, and here, in the words of her Personal Maid, Beatrice, we learn just what sort of queen she became. (8,094 words; Time: 26m)

If you haven’t read the original Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, this story will make absolutely no sense to you.

Mini-Review (click to view--possible spoilers)

Review: 2020.263 (A Word for Authors)

Pro: It’s a suitably mad extension of Lewis Carroll’s Wonderland.

Con: It’s hard to do Wonderland as well as Carroll did it, and this version is no exception. It’s a lot more mean-spirited than the original, which doesn’t help.
