As well as the collections already mentioned, there are two in
_Firebirds_. One a Tam Lin retelling ('Cotillion by Delia Sherman)
and Kara Dalkey's retelling of 'The Snow Queen'.
There's also a collection called _Once Upon a Galaxy_ which is fairy
tales retold as science fiction instead of fantasy. (Thanks,
Dorian!) Not all of the stories grabbed me that much, but it's such
a great idea.
I think some of the stories in Patricia Wrede's _Book of
Enchantments_ are also retellings, but can't remember that well.
Also it's YA, and I'm not sure that would do for this?
