Fairy tales are pretty stories with happy endings meant for children, right? Well, not these ones! Perhaps we’re more familiar with the tame storybook versions, but fairy tales were originally shared between adults, and are crammed full of blood, violence, sex, mystery and betrayal. Join award-winning novelist and short story writer Kirsty Logan for an exploration of the darker side of the tales we think we know.

Kirsty Logan is a professional daydreamer. She is the author of two novels, The Gloaming and The Gracekeepers, and two story collections, A Portable Shelter and The Rental Heart & Other Fairytales. She lives in Glasgow with her wife and their rescue dog. She has tattooed toes
