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 V1:3

Unsettling Wonder V1.3Volume 1, Issue 3: Fairy Brides. 
Print edition. 64 pages, A5 booklet.

Folktales, stories, images, and essays all jostle together, old and new, in this issue, trying somehow to understand one of the most haunting, unsettling motifs of fairy lore. The Fairy Bride is beautiful but perilous; she is vulnerable but strong. She is stolen from her home by whim, or lust, a promise, or a bribe. She is patient, and she is cunning. And at the last, she is forever unattainable, the unfathomable, bewildering grief of loss. Featuring works by Fionnuala Cook, Lafciado Hearn, A. L. Loveday, Matthew Arnold, Katherine Langrish, W. Traill Dennison, Lisa Tuttle, Eleanor Bennett, and Laura Rae.
