Hey, if you like retellings, try out the "Fairy Tale Series" edited by
Terri Windling and someone else I can't remember. Several authors are part
of the series, the best one by far is "Snow White, Rose Red" (can't
remember her name either, sorry, probably knows.)
It's all ketchup:

"If it were only my life, and that would stop it- I have
sometimes offered it, not happily, for less. But it is not
only my life, and you have not asked, but taken." -Captain Kirk

"Presto! A little white bunny." -Mitch Peleggi

"My apathy is palpable at this moment." -Tom Servo

"We're a pacifist race. We only kill out of personal spite." -Brain Guy
