“The Bloody Chamber” makes 100 Best Horror Books of All Time

Angela Carter’s The Bloody Chamber is ranked number 25 inĀ Reedsy’s 100 Best Horror Books of All Time

“Angela Carter is perhaps the preeminent magical realist writers of the twentieth century, female or male. The Bloody Chamber, a collection of darkly reimagined fairy tales and folktales, takes a distinctly feminist slant with its portrayal of female characters: many of the heroines in these stories save themselves, rather than waiting for a hero on a white horse. Of course, they have to go through some pretty scary stuff first. Horror lovers who also enjoy a bit of Holly Black or Marissa Meyer, this is unquestionably the collection for you.”
