We craft and tell stories because we’ve stood on the uncertain edge between the waking world and our imagination, between enchantment and fear. And we remember other stories that help us build our own stories, scraps of lumber and fragments of narrative we gather together to make stories for ourselves.

How a Grapefruit made its Way in the World

Newsflash: We’re happy to announce that Johnny Wink’s poetry collection Seven Ways to Prune a Grapefruit has been shipped. If you ordered a copy or two, well, it’s on its way to you right now. We estimate 2-4 weeks shipping time, all being well. Happy reading to you all. It’s a beautiful book.

To keep you occupied while you wait by the mailbox, you might like to read this warm-hearted interview with Dr Wink.

And the ordering window is still open for Sister Fox’s Field Guide to the Writing Life, by Jane Yolen. So if you’ve not already ordered your copy, why not grab five minutes and do it now?

And lest this post be wholly irrelevant for some of you, here is an illustration by Willy Pogany, of the King of Ireland’s Son giving back Fedelma the Enchanter’s Daughter her swanskin.
