"Lewis Carroll explored childlike wonder and the bewildering realm of adult rules and status, which clashed in bizarre ways. And although it seems we all know something about Alice and Wonderland, we - like Alice herself upon her first reading of Jabberwocky - find "It fills my head with ideas, but I don't know what they are." So as each new generation falls under Carroll's word spells, each in turn must attempt to understand what Alice and Wonderland might mean in the context of their world and in their time. This collection of twenty-first century speculative fiction stories is inspired by Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, Alice Through the Looking Glass, The Hunting of the Snark, and to some degree, aspects of the life of the author, Charles Dodgson, and the real-life Alice (Liddell). Enjoy this wild ride down into and back up out of the rabbit hole!"-- Provided by publisher.
