All of the stories share a common theme of being closely based upon fairy tales or folk tales. However, shes stated: My intention was not to do versions or, as the American edition of the book said, horribly, adult fairy tales, but to extract the latent content from the traditional stories.The anthology contains ten stories: The Bloody Chamber, The Courtship of Mr Lyon, The Tigers Bride, Puss-in-Boots, The Erl-King, The Snow Child, The Lady of the House of Love, The Werewolf, The Company of Wolves, and Wolf-Alice. The tales vary greatly in length, with the novelette The Bloody Chamber being more than twice the length of any of the other stories & more than 30 times the length of the short The Snow Child.
