Once Upon a Time X is over!

I signed up for the Quest the First for five books and completed that. In fact, I ended up reading eleven books:

Anne Lyle: Merchant of Dreams (historical fantasy)
Anne Lyle: The Prince of Lies (historical fantasy)
Patricia C. Wrede: Snow White and Rose Red (fairy tale)
Catherynne M. Valente: the Folded World (fantastical history)
Jordanna Max Brodsky: The Immortals (urban fantay)

Sebastien de Castell: Traitor’s Blade (fantasy)
Joanna M. Harris: The Gospel of Loki (Norse fantasy)
Aliette de Bodard: Harbinger of the Storm (Aztec fantasy)
Aliette de Bodard: Master of the House of Darts (Aztec fantasy)
Tim Powers: The Drawing of the Dark (historical fantasy)

Fritz Leiber: The Swords of Lankhmar (sword and sorcery)

I also read seven collected editions of the Prince Valiant comic but reviewed only the first two. I also read a collection of fairy tale comics:
Prince Valiant vol. 1: 1937-1938
Prince Valiant vol. 2: 1939-1940
Fairy Tale Comics: Classic Tales Told by Extraordinary Cartoonists edited by Chris Duffy

I also read two short story collections:
Laura Resnick: Maybe You’ve Heard of Me?
Leslie Anderson ed.: Steampunk Fairy Tales

And one non-fiction about myths:
Elizabeth Wayland Barber and Paul T. Barber: When they severed Earth from the sky: How the human mind shapes myth

Most of the books were good, some of them great, and I had a blast with the Prince Valiant comics.
