Little Red Riding Hood has been one of those weird coincidental things that keeps popping up in my life lately. All of the following are interesting and aesthetically pleasing, and at least tangentially related to the story.
- The Dala Horse by Michael Stanwick. Follow the link to the Escape Pod website to read it or listen to a reading by Michael Liebmann.
- Schwarzwald by Madéleine Flores. Denounced by Jason as too creepy. “Why would you share that?” he demanded to know, “WHY?“
- Analysis of worldwide variations on stories similar to Little Red Riding Hood, similar to an analyses of genetic variation, indicates that the fairy tale descended from an Ur-story of villainous impersonation that was told around the 1st century AD. (The PLOS One paper.)
