April Comment Giveaway: And the Winner Is…

Michael!  He left a great comment on Fantasy’s Grimm Ancestor:

“I’ve heard tell of some truly terrible things that happen in some of these stories. The Grimm’s Little Red Riding Hood, for instance, is one that my friends told me about in high school. I don’t know if the censorship by Disney is a particularly bad thing, because honestly, when these stories were written down, scary things weren’t nearly as well covered up as they are now, so children had to be exposed to ugliness early on in order to better deal with it as they grew older. However, in our pampered culture, getting eaten by wolves no longer applies.”

He wins a copy of Pride and Prejudice and Zombies by Jane Austen and Seth Grahame-Smith!
