Tales of fairies at the bottom of the garden are usually dismissed as fantasy, but many ordinary people claim to have encountered them. Fairy lore has a long history, deeply ingrained in the folk memory of many different peoples and cultures. Janet Bord's fascinating investigation of this unexplored aspect of the supernatural reveals where you might be expected to meet fairies, under what circumstances, and what they would look or sound like. The author investigates the strong links that exist between sightings of fairies and of creatures alighting from UFOs. Are fairies beings from other planets, fallen angels, or our primitive ancestors? Whatever the verdict, the evidence of fairies is surprisingly convincing.

While it’s true that fairy folk love a good garden and take great pleasure in a tulip, there are dozens of beasties who fall under the fairy domain that are not quite as delightful as the quintessential flower fairy. This book is an exploration of the many things that go bump in the night near the fairy mound. Along with an exploration of folklore and historical literature, readers will delight in fairy tales that demonstrate everything from striking a bargain with a fairy to staving off changelings to laughing with the dwarves. Included are fairy tales and myths from Wales, Scotland, Ireland, and Scandinavia plus classic stories by Thomas Crofton Croker, Joseph Jacobs, Clara Stroebe, the Brothers Grimm, Hans Christian Andersen, Yei Theodora Ozaki, and others on goblins, trolls, gnomes, pookas, changelings, banshees, and more! Chapters include: A Fear of Little Men: Elves, Trolls, Leprechauns, Tree Spirits, Brownies, Coblyns, Dwarves, Goblins, Bonga, Trolls and Other Fairy Folk of Glen, Forests and Hearth The Hand That Rocks the Cradle: Changelings and Other Greedy Kidnappers of the Fairy Kingdom I’m Not Drunk, It’s Just My Pooka: Tales of the Trickster Fairy and Its Wild Counterpart Is That All There Is? Faries Who Give, or The Barter System Whoops, There It Is: How to Enter the Fairy Kingdom (or How Not To) If you think fairies are merely delicate beings who follow you about on gossamer wings, you are in for quite a shock: the kingdom of the fairy is one of vengeance, thievery, trickery, and wild creatures. Consider yourself warned!

No other book can compare or yield the detailed information that we all seek from the time we are tiny children about the habits and habitats of those shy creatures with wings that leap from the pages of our childhood reading to populate our fleeting fantasmagorical and adult consciousness. On these haunting pages you will find depictions of 150 species of what we must categorise as 'faeries'. Seven (what other number could suffice?) chapters summon forth the Faeries of the Air and the Wind, the Faeries from the Fire, Worldly Faeries, Faeries of Sea and Spring, the Maidens from Green Kingdoms and the Airy-Faeries from the land of Dreams. The secrets of their habits and habitats, their riches and rags, their appearances and disappearances are uncovered and their sizes and shapes - never before revealed - are hinted at. This is a book for all the family to relish and read, a feast for the eyes, a fund of stories, facts and fiction, myths and mythology, full of fun and puns to captivate and enchant.

THIS IS NOT A CHILDREN'S BOOK. Its accounts of fairy experiences, mostly from the twentieth century, have come from business men and women, housewives, journalists, clergymen, bus drivers, anglers, gypsies, school teachers, university professors, soldiers, artists, authors, poets, musicians, sculptors, actresses, and many others who have seen fairies of various types in houses, churches, and sheds; in gardens, fields, woods, country lanes, and public parks; on moors, hills, and mountains; and even on sewing machines, typewriters, and kitchen stoves. In 1950 Marjorie T. Johnson became Honorary Secretary of a resurrected Fairy Investigation Society, which had been founded by Capt. Quentin C. A. Craufurd, and she collected accounts of fairies and also angelic beings from many of the members. In 1955 the Scottish author and folklorist Alasdair Alpin MacGregor collaborated with her in sending letters to the national press asking for further true experiences, and many more were received. The result is this book, published here in English for the first time. Marjorie Johnson's only request was that readers peruse the book with an open mind. "THIS BOOK IS SPECIAL because it brings together an unprecedented number of fairy sightings... There are here about four hundred sightings from around the world. In short, this is the biggest single collection of fairy experiences ever amassed... Whether fairies are out there (author points to wood, hedgerow, and waterfall) or in there (author points to balding head of middle-aged 'witness') then they need to be explained. Marjorie gave us, in these pages, the tools to do just that." - from the Introduction by Simon Young
