#1 – The Faerie Summer
Enter the world of Faerie!
The summer sun bathes the earth in warmth and light,
Faeries dance under the moon at night.
Cross through the portal into a land ancient, beautiful, and wild.
See the wonders that enticed the stolen child.
Come away, O reader! To the Realm of Faerie.
But if you want to make it back home, you had better be wary…
Can music overcome fey magic? What do flower fairies do when they get angry? What do you do when the woman you love is trapped in the belly of a brass pig? How do you fight a faerie curse?
This collection includes twenty tales of faeries and magic set in our world–and in others.
#2 – Midwinter Fae
Dance with the Fae on the shortest day of the year!
On the day of the shortened sun
A battle between two kings has begun.
The old year dies, and the Oak King rules
We celebrate with logs of Yule!
But the Holly King is defeated, not dead
To Caer Arianrhod he heads.
Until Midsummer, when they battle again
And the Holly King will once again reign…
Ride along with a motorcycle gang of people who were stolen by the Fae as children. Dance with an ice-skating fairy who can fly through the air, try to outrun the Wild Hunt on a dog sled, and watch out for those who slip into our world from the sideways places. And if you hold a seance on the solstice, be very, very careful what you ask for…
Enter the realm of Faerie at Midwinter in these nineteen tales of enchantment!
#3 – Doorway into Faerie
Step through the portal and enter the world of Faerie.
What if you followed a path through a city park, and found yourself in another land? What if the archway you just passed is really a portal to Faerie? What if the guardian of an opening into our world has perished, and left the doorway unattended?
If you catch a glimpse of the Faery Queen
Consider whether you should remain unseen
If you come across a faery ring
Listen to the wind laugh, and murmur and sing
But beware, for if you enter the world of the Fae
You may have no choice but to stay…
Walk through the doorway and into sixteen different worlds of magic and enchantment.
#4 – Water Faeries
Jump into the waves, and enter the world of Faerie!
On a rock by the shore sits a mermaid fair
Dreaming of her lost lover as she combs her hair
Kelpies, and selkies, and the great snakes of the sea
All stop and listen as she sings of a love never to be
For the sailor she saved from those dark, storm-tossed waves
Got back on his ship, and sailed away
Now the mermaid’s alone, with broken-hearted dreams
And far, far away the sailor stares out at the sea
Fifteen stories about mermaids, kelpies, and other magical water creatures.
What if the Loch Ness monster is more than a myth?
Where did the Lady of the Lake go after leaving Avalon?
Can a mermaid ever truly leave the sea, and follow her lover to land?
This collection includes fifteen tales about sirens, kelpies, mermaids, sea monsters, naiads, and other enchanted creatures of the water.
Enjoy the magic and wonder of these watery tales of Faerie!
#5 – The Wild Hunt
Ride through the sky with the Wild Hunt!
A fierce host rides across the winter sky at night
In wild pursuit of whoever crosses their path
Peals of thunder follow the horses as they gallop through the clouds
Fire flashing from their hooves
The baying of the hounds echoes across the sky
Their sharp teeth glinting in the light of the moon
The Huntsman blows his horn, and the Fae ride behind him
Their faces both beautiful and terrible to behold
When the nights are long and the winter winds howl, stay inside
Lest you cross the path of the Hunt…and become their prey
The Wild Hunt contains thirteen stories based on the wide and varied folklore of the Wild Hunt. In some tales, the leader of the hunt is Odin; in others it’s King Arthur, Herodias, or Herne the Hunter. Sometimes the riders are Fae; sometimes they are specters, or skeletons, or strange beasts never before seen by mortal eyes.
But no matter who the hunters are, you definitely don’t want to be the one they’re after…
Let the Wild Hunt begin!
#6 – Stolen by the Fae
Steal away to the wild world of the Fae!
In the darkest dark of night
The faeries come to see the sight
A sleeping child, sweet as can be
Its cheeks red as stolen cherries
They whisper, then sing the child a song
It stirs, and smiles, and slumbers along
Faster than the eye can see
They swap it with a sickly Fae baby
In the morn, the parents find the sight
Of a babe who looks like their own…but not quite
Stolen by the Fae contains sixteen stories based on the mythology of the changeling, in which fairies steal a human and replace it with one of their own kind. Sometimes their motivations are good…and sometimes they are not good at all.
Enjoy the magic and excitement of these sixteen tales of Faerie!
