Bizarre Fairy Tale Adaptations

Six-Gun Snow White, Catherynne M. ValenteSNOW WHITE

In this novella, Snow White is the daughter of a Crow woman, Gun That Sings, who had been forced into marrying a cruel white silver baron, before dying in childbirth. Snow’s name is the racially sneering equivalent of a fat man being called “Tiny.” Enter the stepmother, and her mirror, which prompt Snow to dress as a boy and escape into Indian Territory, meeting six badass outlaw women, a pony named Charming, and tons of adventure along the way.
