"This promises to be the fairy book of the year."—Simon Young, secretary of the Fairy Investigation Society
"A comprehensive assessment of the attributes of faerie folklore, which will provide an indispensable guide for many years. ... The book takes a sectionalized, thematic approach, dealing with the phenomena of (primarily) British faerie folklore in a far-reaching and exhaustive format. ... For anyone interested in how the concept of the faeries has infiltrated our culture through centuries of folklore, John Kruse's encyclopedic treatment of the subject matter is essential reading. He treats the diverse source material with great sensitivity, and the effect is that of wanting to investigate further the vast body of lore that he has so ably marshalled into this wonderful book."—Dr. Neil Rushton, archaeologist and freelance writer on mythology and fairy lore
