Thoughts and Articles on the Fey Folk
note that these articles are copyrighted. You are welcome

Almost every culture has its version of fairy folk, who
may also be known as fay, fae, elves, brownies, gnomes,
goblins, kobolds, kelpies, nixies, peris, pixies, sylphs,
trolls, leprechauns, and by many other names. As well,
they have tended to be referred to, by those fearing to
provoke them, with euphemisms such as The Good Folk,
The Fair Folk, or simply The Folk.
This growing body of articles will explore fairies in
their wide divergence of manifestions, in different traditions
and cultures, though the emphasis will likely remain on
European folklore, as that is my personal focus of interest
(at least at this time).
