Folktales, Faeries, and Spirits – a review

One of the major perks that comes with being me, is that I get to read some books long before they are released. That was the case with this new book from Halo Quin, and I had the honour of being asked to write an endorsement. Halo is a writer whose warmth and generosity of spirit runs through everything she does. Her work is always cheering. I make no claims for objectivity, I’m a huge fan of this particular entity (fairy? goblin? I’m not always entirely sure…)

So, this is the blurb I wrote, which is in the front of the book (I will never get tired of getting to do this, although this isn’t one of my better bits of writing, I’m pretty sure I was ill at the time and there are word repeats and frankly Halo deserved better but here we are.)

“This book will be of particular interest to students of Druidry interested in working with folklore, landscape and spirits of place. There are many interesting fairy insights here, and the author provides a valuable map for engaging with stories and spirits in your landscape.”

I’ll add here that if you are starting out on any kind of exploration around folklore, fairy, stories in the land or spirits of place then this is a good book to pick up. If you’ve been poking around in this sort of thing for longer, you might still want it for the sheer charm.
