Alice Redux:

New Stories of Alice, Lewis and Wonderland

edited by Richard Peabody

Purchase from Paycock Press

"Alice! Alice! Alice! We never seem to tire or get enough of Alice, our muse, our little girl in distress, our nineteenth century doppelganger. The trappings and images of Wonderland continue to fascinate us--the portmanteau language, the characters who act as if they're figments of the universal dream world--and never seem to fade despite darker, often sinister, possibilities. We loved the book as children and many of us carry that love into an adulthood that seems increasingly Wonderland-like in terms of surreality and absurdity. Yet nothing is sacred in the literary world, not even Alice of the Wonderland frock, and the writers in this anthology blend fiction with fact and speculation so that the fictional Alice and the other Alice, the real Alice, perform a shadowy arabesque worthy of the puzzles, games, and amusements of Wonderland's creator."
