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.

Unsettling Wonder V1:2

UnsettlingWonder1.2Volume 1, Issue 2: Wise Fools.
Print edition. 80 pages, A5 booklet.

In this issue, we have any number of wise fools for you to meet. To start us off, Zoe McAuley introduces us to a very silly sort of cat. Then Defne Çizakça tells us three old stories about that sagest of fools, Nasreddin Hoca. Peter J. Herron makes a fool of time, and John Grey knows better than to blame the sky. in her folklore column, Katherine Langrish explains the function of fools in politics, religion, and fairy tales. Patricia S. Bowne recounts how a lazy boy meets an idle Rascal, and the adventures that befell them. Then Debby Harris gives us a map of a fool’s journey (who knows which way that fool will go?), while Austin Hackney spins a tale of a boy and a dragon and a drainpipe. And last, Ken Altabef brings us the story of a piper whose song tells of a far country where everyone is happy as a fool. Cover illustration by Laura Anderson.
