Kristine Kathryn Rusch writes a story that takes the fine lacey poetics of Dickinson and creates a story worthy of Dickinson. Quoth The Rock Star" has Jim Morrison entering the world of Edgar Allan Poe and "The Raven" as they battle it out for possession of a soul. The author of "Quoth," Rio Youers, writes one of the best descriptions of a Doors concert I've ever read.

This is one of the most unusual books (Classics Mutilated) I have read lately. There are 13 original stories by thirteen different writers. What makes these stories somewhat strange is that they are about characters and people we have grown up reading but with a different type of a slant. Emily Dickinson, Huck Finn and numerous other people are in this volume.

The thirteen stories include the following: The fairest of them all, Ann-droid of Green Gables, Little women in black, death stopped for Miss Dickinson (one of my favorite in this series), twilight of the Gods, Pokky man, vicious, from hell’s heart, Frankenbilly, the green menace, quoth the rock star, the happiest hell on earth, and dread island. The writers in this collection are also interesting and at the end of this book there is a short bio on each contributor.

If you are looking for some great stories with unusual twists, you might want to check out this collection of sometimes bazaar tales. A fun read.

Rating: 4 Stars. Joseph J. Truncale (Author: The Samurai Soul: An old warrior’s poetic tribute).

"Classsics Mutilated" is an anthology of 13 short stories that takes some literary classics and mashes them up with a twist of horror, that crosses genres, characters and the lines between them.

Mutilated is kind of a misnomer for these stories, there's nothing mutilated or even stitched together about these stories. They're more a fusion of genres that enhances the originals. Like alternate histories in writing a good mashup you have to have a good command of the material, balanced with a respect for the original while maintaining a sense of the irreverent about it. Hopefully, the new story, besides being entertaining will also provide a better understanding or insight into the original, and these are well written stories.

Some of the standout stories for me were:
"Death Stopped for Miss Dickinson," which takes the literary assessment of Emily Dickinson courting death in her poetry from the figurative into the literal. Kristine Kathryn Rusch writes a story that takes the fine lacey poetics of Dickinson and creates a story worthy of Dickinson.

"Quoth The Rock Star" has Jim Morrison entering the world of Edgar Allan Poe and "The Raven" as they battle it out for possession of a soul. The author of "Quoth," Rio Youers, writes one of the best descriptions of a Doors concert I've ever read. Youers interlaces Morrison's lyrics into the prose to create effect, tone and even real power in using Morrison's motif's and imagery in the telling of the story and will give Doors fans a rush of recognition.

In "From Hell's Heart" Nancy Collins has Captain Ahab from Moby Dick fused with H.P. Lovecraft. I was never a big fan of Lovecraft when he was big in the mid-70's because he always backed away from describing the horror, but Nancy Collins takes that extra step and describes Lovecraft's indescribable.

"Frankenbilly," is a western homage to the B-movie. It meshes "Frankenstein" with the 60`s classic "Billy the Kid Versus Dracula." While successfully serving the flavor of a western and a B-movie, without degenerating into B writing.

For rock fans that want to continue in vein of "Quoth The Rock Star," Mark Morris' "Vicious" has Sid Vicious on tour in the U.S. meeting up with a Voodoo priestess or two, and definitely maintains Vicious' attitude and outlook towards life.

"Twilight of the Gods" has Norse mythology going to high school and meeting the 90210 world. An apt tongue in cheek look at The Gods.

The H.G. Wells story "The Island of Dr. Moreau" never seemed to work in concept either in Wells` work or in the movies. But in "The Happiest Hell on Earth," John Skipp and Cody Goodfellow have Moreau working much better when he meets up with a Walt Disneyesque Hollywood impresario.

In "Classics Mutilated" there is a quotient of fun in the stories, a joie de vive in the writing, that you can even see in titles like "Anne-Droid of Green Gables." "Classics Mutilated" is a good for anyone who likes literature and/or horror and is looking for a little different perspective on either. A reading of "Classics Mutilated" will bring back fond memories and may even send you back to the originals.

This book is fantastic. It does a great of taking literary classics and mixing them with the sci-fi and horror genre. Little Women becomes Little Women in Black and Huckleberry Fin and Jim take a trip to Dread Island where animals walk upright, talk, wear clothes, hunt and eat people, and worship an inter-dimensional demon. I think a person who loves classic literature can appreciate how the authors remain true to the original characters from the classic stories but create an entirely new story for this day and time. I think Sci-Fi and horror fans and younger readers may want to read the classic works, if they have not before, after reading these stories. Good book. I recommend it.

An awesome array of stories. Usually in a short story collection there's a lot of hit or miss stories but for me every one of them was great. Some were better than others but all of them were way better than P&P&Z. In that the added parts did not blend well for me and it sounded fake. In the stories in this book where they added their own text to a classic it blended seamlessly. The standout stories for me were: Death Stopped for Ms. Dickinson (very eerie and beautifully written, that is definitely an author I'll be looking for more of), Little Al and Big El had me laughing out loud, Dread Island (I'm a sucker for anything Lovecraft), Little Women in Black, and Benediction. I actually liked AnneDroid of Green Gables also though I didn't think I would. I might have liked Twilight of the Gods better but I've never read that piece of dreck Twilight so I don't really know what was taken from it but it was pretty funny. I also sincerely loved Mirror,Mirror. Nothing like a fairytale catfight to brighten up the day. The only issues I had with it reading it on the Kindle were the stories Benediction and Little Al and Big El were swapped around so that Benediction was under Little Al's title and vice-versa, so I was momentarily confused. All in all an excellent book and I can't wait for a Classics Mutilated 2.
