“Deeply troubling is Mathew Kressel’s “In Memory of a Summer’s Day”, which has as its premise the commercialization of Wonderland. A self-medicating tour guide takes groups to Wonderland, but only after they sign a waiver that should give them serious pause. Especially if they are taking children along.” — The Nameless Zine

Here is what you can expect fromEllen Datlow’s  Mad Hatters and March Hares: “An all original anthology of stories inspired by Lewis Carroll’s Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking-Glass and What Alice Found There. ‘Alice’ has been read, enjoyed, and savored by generations of children and adults since its publication. It’s hallucinogenic, weird, imaginative and full of wordplay, mathematical puzzles, and political and social satire.”

Mad Hatters and March Hares will features stories that are inspired by the strange events and characters that appear in Wonderland.
