Newly co-published by Furtherfield and The Hyperliterature Exchange: a review of The Path, a "short horror game" by Tale of Tales (Michael Samyn and Auriea Harvey), based on the story of Little Red Riding Hood.

"The two best-known versions of the tale are by Charles Perrault and the Grimm Brothers - but there are numerous others. Sometimes Red Riding Hood meets not a wolf but an ogre; sometimes, when she gets to the house, she is fed various parts of a dismembered grandmother. Samyn and Harvey retain the gruesomeness, the allusions to dismemberment, and the violent sexuality which feature in many earlier versions, and the symbolism which lurks beneath the surface of Red Riding Hood in all its various manifestations comes through particularly strongly."
