The cast is great, with David McCallum, John Gielgud, Ralph Richardson, and Agnes Moorehead in addition to Mason. Short Stories: "Wolfland" by Tanith Lee, first published in her fine story collection Red as Blood (1983), is a deliciously gothic tale set in 19th century Scandinavia. "I Shall Do Thee Mischief in the Woods" by Kathe Koja, from Snow White, Blood Red (1993), is a dark, sharp story that forces us to re-examine the roles of predator and prey. "Little Red" by Wendy Wheeler, from Snow White, Blood Red (1993), is a disturbing contemporary tale about wolves whose skin is on the inside, and the ways that young girls can be preyed on. "The Apprentice" by Miriam Grace Monfredo, from Ellery Queen's Mystery Magazine (November, 1993), mixes fantasy, mystery, and fairy tales in a poignant exploration of the subject of child abuse. "The Good Mother" by Patricia Galloway, from Truly Grim Tales (1995), reworks the fairy tale into a post-nuclear-disaster science fiction story. "Riding the Red" by Nalo Hopkinson, first published in Black Swan, White Raven (1997), is an extraordinary story about sex and female power, influenced — at least in the rhythm of the language — by the author's Caribbean background. "Wolf" by Francesca La Block, from her urban fairy tale collection The Rose and the Beast (2000), is another story using the fairy tale to explore the subject of childhood sexual abuse. "Little Red and the Big Bad" by Will Shetterly, from Swan Sister (2003), is a sly urban version of the story, street-wise and sassy.

But that is not the tale as it developed through oral retellings, over centuries and was made famous by being recorded in the Nursery Rhymes of England, collected by James Orchard Halliwell (1886.) In that version—incidentally, also the one that I first heard as a child—the wolf huffs and puffs, blows down the straw house of the first little pig and proceeds to eat the owner, as he does when he blows down the wooden house of the second; only the third pig survives, it actually eating the wolf, when he falls straight into his cauldron, coming down the chimney of the brick house.
