    1. Overall rating 3 stars, individual ratings below.--I was excited for this to download to my Kindle app short stories with different versions of Mrs Claus? Yes please! With a few exceptions, these stories were mostly just okay (only one I couldn't finish). When the writing was good, the writers rocked it. As for some of the others the writing wasn't terriblebut in these ones, I connect with the ideas they were going for and I was left feeling underwhelmed.A few were only loosely tied to Mrs. Clau [...]


    2. After a lifetime of images of a woman who didn’t do much but fatten up her husband and herself (must be the plate of cookies I always see her with), it was refreshing to read this Mrs. Claus anthology. Editor Rhonda Parrish performed well, giving readers many different types of females Clauses. These women are not merely takeoffs on the one we have always heard about, but imaginative stories that transform Mrs. Claus into someone else.As with any themed collection of stories, most are entertai [...]


    3. I'm generally not a big holiday story fan, but these stories were original and fun enough that I loved them. Each story develops a very different version of Mrs. Claus, from a bad-ass ice goddess protecting her dimension to a tough Latina just carrying on the family business. Some of these Mrs. Claus characters are supportive and in love with their Santa Claus, others are in direct conflict with him, or are quietly manipulating him. This anthology is a great exploration of a little-known side of [...]


    4. Publisher's Weekly says, "Parrish (Haunted Hospitals) delivers comfort, joy, and more than a little Christmas spice in this adorable anthology that explores the woman behind the Christmas mythos in various guises, drawing on mythological influences that span the globe."Full review here --> publishersweekly/978-


    5. What a delightful anthology that blends myth, magic and folklore with a healthy dose of reality. Each story is a good length for the busy holiday season. 14 tales, each with a unique perspective of what Mrs. Claus should be. All fourteen authors are new to me but they all write enjoyable stories. From aliens to witches there are many ideas to make any reader happy. A beautiful cover should make this a standout on the bookstore shelf. Featuring original short stories by Laura VanArendonk Baugh, C [...]


    6. I'm to the point where I should just find a way to subscribe to Rhonda Parrish's anthologies and give World Weaver Press money every month. This is not her first anthology that I've read and reviewed, and it almost certainly won't be the last.Like the title says, Mrs. Claus is not your typical Christmas anthology. All of the stories have a female lead (most a strong female lead), and a few make no mention at all of ol' Saint Nick. A couple of the stories felt like the connection to the theme was [...]


    7. Mrs. Claus: Not the Fairy Tale They Say is an Anthology full of very different stories about the mostly overlooked Mrs Claus. I must say I was impressed with this collection and now I rally what some full length stories about a bad-ass Mrs Claus. I devoured this book like a Christmas turkey. What a perfect read for the holidays, and more so when you are looking for something different then the cheesy hallmark movies that take over TV. Now I will say that I wasn't a fan of all the stories, as wit [...]


    8. Mrs. Claus: Not The Fairy Tale They Say – Anthology5-star reviewThis Anthology was honestly such an exciting and entertaining read! Each short story is unbelievably creative, some were dark and twisted and others were sweet and filled with love. These stories are nothing like the tales we’ve heard all of our lives. Mrs. Claus is often forgotten or is only pictured one way, well not anymore. Now’s her time to shine in an anthology all about her! Most of these stories are wicked and dark, no [...]


    9. An excellent collection of holiday tales that put Mrs.Claus in the spotlight.lly. She's been an afterthought, a woman in the shadows too long.These wide range of tales blend myth, magic, and folklore then twist them with a new take on the woman behind the man in red. Most of them showcase that she's the one in charge or even that there is no "man", that it was her the entire time.Paranormal, sci-fi, fantasy, horror- there's a bit of everything in this fantastic collection.The opening story, "Wig [...]


    10. NOTE: I was provided with an e-ARC by the publisher in exchange for an honest review.Short review: Three and a half stars for the collection overall. A few good stories, with several that might have benefited from one more revision to tighten-up, clarify, and sand off the rough edges.This is a collection of short stories all focused on the character of Mrs. Claus, and specifically interested in subverting the “traditional” ideas of her as helpmeet, cookie baker, hot chocolate providing, seco [...]


    11. “Most humans are not capable of love in its purest sense—except at Christmas. That is when all the goodwill toward men peeks through.” A quote from “Moves Like Jagger” by Randi PerrinI enjoyed this anthology so so so much. “Mrs. Claus: Not the Fairy Tale They Say” is a fantastic collection of short stories about Mrs. Claus. It has something for everyone; humor, fantasy, sci fi, magic, dark stories of insanity and oh so much more.It was super easy and quick to read, the total book i [...]


    12. I received this book as a Library Thing Early Reviewer.I really liked the idea of stories about Mrs. Claus because, as the anthologist pointed out, we rarely get to see anything of Mrs. Claus other than the happy homemaker baking cookies taking care of Santa and the elves. The stories certainly run the gamut---Mrs. Claus as alien to Valkyrie to villain. Personally, I didn't enjoy Mrs. Claus as villain, but that's just me. Of the 14 stories there was only one that was so truly awful I couldn't fi [...]


    13. I'm a contributor to this, but I'm trying not to be biased.This is a really fun book. Mrs. Claus is anything but the frumpy old motherly type in the background. She's determined and scary and funny and sexy(I could do without the sex in one story, but that's my problem, not the story's.)From a really inventive take on a Council of Holidays to a terrifying fae, from a rock music-filled tale to a badass monster hunter, there's something for everyone.


    14. A nice collection of stories where the heroine is Mrs. Claus. A fast read with different settings and and plots but with the constant of a strong woman.


    15. Reivew originally published on my blog, Musings of a Bookish Kitty:literaryfeline/2017/12Mrs. Claus: Not the Fairy Tale They Say edited by Rhonda ParrishWorld Weaver Press, 2017 Fantasy/Science Fiction; 215 pgsSource: E-copy provided by publisher via NetGalley for an honest review.I could not pass up this anthology of short stories when I first came across it. Santa Claus is canon as is his wife, although she always gets the short straw when it comes to most stories about Christmas. In Mrs. Clau [...]


    16. Mrs. Claus: Not the Fairy Tale They Say Anthology is a wonderful anthology filled with stories about Mrs. Claus that isn’t your typical fairy tale. They are just the opposite in fact. The authors that have come together to write this anthology are some of the best at fairytales and making them the opposite of what they are. Step into a world where what you thought was normal isn’t and you will fall in love with the new twists and turns of every story you read. It’s Mrs. Claus’ turn to sh [...]


    17. Overall, I would say this was an interesting collection of stories, told from a unique perspective that we don’t usually get to see in the commercialized world of Christmas. It was nice to see a change from the usual alpha male or Santa Claus sweeping in to save the day and falling in love etc. My only complaint would be that this was a bit out there on some of them, like way, way out there, that I had some trouble finishing the short story. Otherwise it was a great concept and I appreciated t [...]


    18. This anthology caught my eye because there are just not that many stories about Mrs. Claus out there. I wanted to see how creative people are with her story. I found several of the stories in this collection humorous, a few of them bizarre, and a few of them enticing.Wight Christmas by Laura VanArendonk BaughThere is a war on Christmas and Mrs. Claus is on the trail of the suspects. With some unconventional help of the Skeleton King, they intend to put balance back to the holidays.Christmas Magi [...]

    20. Book Review: Mrs. Claus Not the Fairy Tale they SayAuthors: MultipleEdited By Rhonda ParrishFour StarsIn this Anthology there are 15 different authors with one common themeMrs. Claus. The authors are all writing about Mrs. Claus in the fantasy spectrum. These authors are sharing the love Christmas and the Lady behind the Jolly old St. Nick, Mrs. Claus. If you are a fantasy lover this anthology would be great for you. There are so many different ways that the authors have portrayed Mrs. Claus in [...]


    21. Mrs. Claus: Not the Fairy Tale They Say edited by Rhonda Parrish was a great anthology that really showcased how different our images of a certain lady in red can be when given the freedom to think beyond the fat guy in a red suit. Each of these stories were a unique interpretation of Mrs. Claus, making her into everything from a villain to an alien to even a member of the Valkyrie, and like most anthologies while the majority of the stories were good there were some that just needed a little so [...]


    22. This Anthology was extremely well developed. I really enjoyed every word. It began with a unique tale by Laura Van Arendonk Baugh. Greed, capitalism, and commercialisation are exposed for the war starters they are. But Mrs. Clause still has a few tricks up her sleeve.Good Morning.Lovely tale of reclamation of old love, Good Morning, by Kirsten Lee is a really wonderful tale of courage and change.Miss Lil Toe Head by Michael LeonbergerWow, can this guy wright! His descriptions are so meticulous, [...]

    24. I read Mrs. Claus: Not the Fairytale They Say Anthology and I give it a 5/5.This anthology is full of short fun stories about the infamous Mrs. Claus. The interesting thing about this anthology is it shows Mrs. Claus in a completely new light. In the story “The Asylum Musicale” by C. B. Calsing the author writes Mrs. Claus as a fae who comes and steals new born babies leaving in dolls in their place. Another story, “The True Story of Christina and Kristopher Kringle” by Ross Van Dusen, M [...]


    25. Mrs. Claus: Not the Fairy Tale They SayAnthology4 StarsMrs. Claus is an assortment of 4-star stories. These stories give a whole new definition of Mrs. Claus. So many great authors such as Laura VanArendok Baugh, C. B. Calsing, DJ Tyrer, Jennifer Lee Rossman, Kristen Lee, Randi Perrin, Michael Leonbarger, Andrew Wilson, Ross Van Dusen, MLD Curelas, Maren Matthias, Anne Luebke, Jeff Kuykendall and Hayley Stone.My favorite was The Asylum Musicale by C.B. Calsing, this story has Mrs. Claus’s as a [...]


    26. “Mrs Claus – Not the Fairy tale they say” is a collection of stories collated by Rhonda Parrish. The concept behind it was so creative. Take a person/legend that everyone knows – i.e Mrs Claus – and imagine her in different scenarios. The result is a lot of different short stories about Mrs Claus depicting her in many different ways- as good, evil, nice and naughty. It really was a fascinating read. I enjoyed the fact that the stories were all short and I could pick up the book and put [...]


    27. 4 StarsMrs. Claus: Not the Fairy Tale they say is an Anthology of stories all centred around Mrs. Claus. We all know and love the traditional depiction of Santa’s wife. The cheerful, sweet, cookie baking, caregiver from the North Pole. But, what if there was more to Mrs. Claus? What if this image we’ve been given wasn’t accurate? What if there was a whole lot more to her than we’ve been led to believe, or could ever imagine? Well, that’s exactly what this anthology is all about- each a [...]


    28. Who knew that Mrs. Claus was so dimensional and isn’t just the wife of Santa Claus. The authors of Mrs. Claus: Not the Fairy Tale They Say did. These authors capture her in a whole new light and give her some much deserved time center stage.I loved how Mrs. Claus was depicted in more ways than one, dark and twisty in one story and hard working family lady in another. Plus, she is not 100% team Santa in some of the stories. If you are looking to get away from the “normal” holiday stories th [...]


    29. Mrs. Claus: Not the Fairy Tale They SayEdited by Rhonda Parish5 starsI always look forward to the anthologies that are edited by Rhonda Parish! They always contain brilliant short stories that are so well written – Mrs Claus was no exception! It was fabulous collection of short stories. I am starting to recognise many of the authors now that are included in these anthologies and I love that I am able to read more of their work. Each story had its own unique Christmas twist to it. It’s not ve [...]


    30. Mrs. Claus: Not the Fairy Tale They Say is an anthology by ten great authors coming together with their stories about a side of Mrs. Claus we are not use to seeing. Some of these authors are new and some I have read before. There is something for every paranormal story lover in this anthology. These stories will take you on a journey of witches, Valkyries, goblins, goddesses and so much more. Most of these stories are easy flowing and you will be at the end before you realize it. I loved how eac [...]
