The Grateful Dead Tales from Around the World

The Grateful Dead Tales from Around the World by Heidi Anne Heiner

Fairy tales about the grateful dead figure, and some plays and a literary work on it. Includes a study of the trope.

Some repetition from the Twelve Dancing Princesses. Also, I thought the plays rather weak, since they only have a small portion of the traditional tales. But a larger number of variations, since the grateful dead can feature as a helper in just about any story.
