Snow White and the Seven Samurai Paperback
by Tom Holt
Once upon a time (or last Thursday, as it's known in this matrix) everything was fine: Humpty Dumpty sat on his wall, Jack and Jill went about their lawful business, the Big Bad Wolf did what big bad wolves do, and the wicked queen plotted murder most foul. But the humans hacked, cried havoc, shut down the wicked queen's system (mirrors 3.1) and corrupted her database - and suddenly everything was not fine at all.
But at least we know that they'll all live happily ever after.
Don't we? Computers and fairy tales collide to hilarious effect in the latest sparkling cocktail of mayhem, wit and wonder from the master of comic fantasy. More information on this book and others can be found on the Orbit web-site at www.orbitbooks.co.uk

Review by whimsicalwattle
An enjoyable book that was rather humorous and entertaining.<br/><br/>The way the characters were portrayed was different to the fairy tales, with the seven dwarves replaced with seven samurai and a not so sweet Snow White.<br/><br/>The Wicked Queen really isn't all that evil and the Brothers Grimm make an appearance in the fairy tale dimension.<br/><br/>I'd recommend this book if you have a vivid imagination and can think outside the square.
