Who doesn’t love surveys of folklore and ancient beliefs? I had no idea of my love for the survey until I read Sir James Frazer’s The Golden Bough. It was like my brain was eating too many potato chips and not minding it in the least. In fact, I am so excited about some books I am in the midst of munching that I have to blog about them before I am even finished. Werewolves by Konstantinos and Fairies: A Dangerous History by Richard Sugg and Magical Folk by Simon Young and Ceri Houlbrook.
But, what am I learning? Well, it would be a disservice to the research if I just gave you the cliff notes. So, you’re just going to have to wait for my next novel – BUT – I will tell you that you absolutely should read one or all of these books if you are even the least bit interested in these subjects. Also, fairyist.com has an amazing and recently released digital archive of fairy sightings, that you can submit your own experience to!
Obviously, my next book will have something to do with the good people and with the were-people, but just how that will play out is something that we will have to think about. The new book is like nothing I’ve ever written.
In the meantime, I will leave you to puzzle out hammrammar and collepex.
