12/23/2011 Fantastic Friday!

Welcome back! It's the day before Christmas Eve and wow are things crazy at work! I am going to blame that for why this is up kind of late, but I'm writing this quickly so that you can see what we're looking at today!
Today we're looking at "Hunter's Heart" by Christine Pope. If that name sounds familiar that would be because a few weeks ago I looked at "High Noon at Hot Topic" by her as well. This story is also short, and free at Smashwords. It's the story of the Huntsman from Snow White being given his assignment to kill the beautiful princess for the evil Queen.

I've said it before how I love new takes on myths and fairy tales and this is a fun example of why. When things are taken from a perspective they aren't often done from and you can see the other side of the story, even if it's from a character that was relatively small in the scope of the much larger story, it adds depth to the character and gives you a sense they too are a real person thrown into something that is much bigger than they are.

Since this is short and free I won't go into too much detail, I don't want to give spoilers, but I do recommend looking at this story. It's very touching and you get an idea of the choices the Huntsman made when he took the job, and also let Snow White go so she could meet the Seven Dwarves.

It's almost Christmas and to those who celebrate I wish you a good one. Monday will be an off day so I will be posting again next Wednesday. For those who are doing some last minute shopping, "Hunters Heart" is free on Smashwords, and using the previous coupon code "The Light Rises" can be too. I wish you all a good weekend, happy holidays, and a happy new year!
