Volume 13, Issue 1 (2017) The Translucent Issue

When Kate Bernheimer and Managing Editor Joel Hans announced that the thirteenth installment of Fairy Tale Review would be The Translucent Issue, I think we were all curious to see what would emerge as the final product. It was, essentially, a break from tradition. Up until this point, Fairy Tale Review has used color as the guiding principle for each of the issues—aquamarine or ochre, violet or blue—in homage to Andrew Lang’s famously hued fairy books. And in some ways, colors are an easier, more obvious entry point into the world of fairy tales. After all, who has trouble recalling the red cape of the girl who enters the woods? Or the skin white as snow? Or an emerald city? The relationship between color and story is perhaps a hallmark of the genre. But translucency? Now that is a horse of—well, you know.
