Review--Six-Gun Snow White

Six-Gun Snow WhiteSix-Gun Snow White by Catherynne M. Valente
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Completely different retelling of the Snow White story, with a heroine who's not snow white, a wicked step mom who's got her own issues, seven interesting not-dwarvish characters and an old West setting that gives it a new twist.

The language is evocative of Huckleberry Finn, and the story combines elements of American and First Nations mythology along with the classic fairy tale. Especially recommended to readers who're looking for more diversity in their sf & fantasy.
