Book Reviews

We have a dedicated team of volunteers who write book reviews on Once Upon a Blog. Please follow our Review Request Guidelines for full details.

All our staff are loyal volunteers who receive a tiny monthly stipend that doesn't come close to reflecting their worth. Without them, our magazine wouldn't be possible. If you're interested in funding our work and keeping the lights on, please visit our Patreon page.

Tahlia broke into the world of fairy tale retelling as a short story writer and intern for Enchanted Conversation Magazine.


After graduating from Westmont College, she created a webzine of her own, expanding it to include classic mythology, a personal passion of hers.


To read her random musings, you can check out her personal blog:

Tahlia (Merrill) Kirk

Founder & Chief Editor

Carina scours the internet for tasty content to feed to our ravenous Facebook page.

When she's not taming the dragon of social media, she spends her time crafting twisted fairy tales and cross-pollinated mythic fiction (she's had several published in TT, in fact). For links to stories and poems, stop by

Geoffrey styles every detail of our magazine, from the cover art to the interior layout.

He has written for History Today, Modus, Super Jump Magazine, Bridge Eight, and a number of others. He can tie his shoelaces really well, does not like moths, and has a Star Trek novel getting in the way of real work.

        Editorial Assistant

Laura works behind the scenes to sort through our initial submissions.

She studied at Queens College where she won a Silverstein-Peiser award in Fiction. Now, she writes fantasy and horror from Queens, New York.  When she’s not writing she can be found curled up with a book and a cat, hoping that something magical will happen.
