Summary

What are faeries really like?Seducing virgins, abducting babies, luring mortals toward madness and death . . . Contrary to today's sanitized depictions, the pixies, elves, wood nymphs, selkies, and other magical creatures embodied in folklore can be quite nasty. Kenny Klein draws on folkloric record-legend, myth, song, and sagas-to reveal faeries' true nature: where they live; what they do; their sexuality, fears, and talents for disguise, enchantment, and prophecy. He also offers practical tips for those who dare to visit their world.Entertaining and enlightening, this unique guide examines human interactions with Mab the Faerie Queen, Puck the prankster, Jenny Green Teeth, and other legendary fey. Discover how these historic tales intersect with Pagan customs and Judeo-Christian mythology-and survive in today's faerie tales, music, and holiday traditions.
