    One thought on “The Fair Folk”

    1. UOUS by Tanith LeeRichly atmospheric but ultimately unsatisfactory story of Cinderella like Lois, whose labors for her abusive stepmother are interrupted by demands from supernatural creatures in the forest The fact that the family was in a dilapidated house in the forest in the first place was kind of a mental problem for me, since this was the modern day and they had a car and money and liked shopping and pubs, so it made no sense they would move out there But my main complaint is that the plo [...]

    2. This is a nice collection of tales that focus on fairies, and that would be your older and nastier fairies than Tinkerbell UOUS by Tanith Lee is, to my mind at least, the best in the collection Lee sets up the tale nicely, making it almost sound like we are going to get a classic Cinderella tale Then she gives it one of her Lee twists The tale is a wonderful twist on the three wishes theme It does make you wonder as it raises questions about fairy tales and life in general The Kelpie by Patricia [...]

    3. Very entertaining yet very weird The fifth story in the collection, published in 2005, An Embarrassment of Elves , is laugh out loud funny The half dozen stories, all good, range from dramatic to horrific to hilarious Good collection.

    4. Well, I said most of my comment in the status updates, so there s not much left to say UOUS by Tanith Lee This is a sort of twist on a Cinderella story It wasn t a bad story, but I found the writing a bit distracting This is the first thing I ve read by Tanith Lee, and it didn t make me want to run out and grab by her 2.5 3 stars Grace Notes by Megan Lindholm aka Robin Hobb This was a sort of cute story about a brownie with Martha Stewart taste It was also kind of annoying in parts The love sto [...]

    5. The Fair Folk was put together in 2005 by the Science Fiction Book Club, and consists of stories written about elves and their kin from some luminaries in the field I enjoyed each one immensely, differing as they do in style and tone UOUS by Tanith Lee takes the familiar three wishes story and turns it on its head An unhappy Cinderalla esque young woman calls out three wishes, conjuring a fairy who is than happy to comply with her request However, thanks the the usual caveat to be careful how y [...]

    6. I usually steer clear of collections of short stories I m guilty of wanting the story to last longer than that Right about the time you are committed to the characters, the story is over and you have a new set of voices to hear But this one I think I m going to have to own It s a wonderful collection and the stories sit well with one another Dark in some spots, light and fanciful in others a very good mix.

    7. This was a compilation of short stories which I generally am not fond of However, I found most of these stories entertaining and fun There were 6 stories of all kinds but with the theme of fairies elves The ones I really did not care for were The Kelpie and The Embarrassment of Elves otherwise the read was good however not great.

    8. As usual, the story by Jane Yolen and Midori Snyder was beautifully written, complex and pure urban faerie tale The main characters are actually women of an older age, not pubescent virgins Refreshing The next most memorable story was McKillip s Kelpie Also lovely and haunting I have to admit though, that just seeing the name Yolen in an anthology will sell me on the book.

    9. I thoroughly enjoyed this book, especially the stories by Tanith Lee, Kim Newman, Patricia A McKillip obviously , and Jane Yolen and Midori Snyder This book reminded me of how much I love faerie mythology and tales of the Middle Lands, and I am keen to find some and reread some of my favourites One funny thing I noticed was that after a year of reading a lot of Charles de Lint I think I ve read 15 or 16 of his books since January 2016 I kind of imagine all urban fantasy stories as being in the [...]

    10. This was a book of 6 short stories The first stories UOUS stared out slow but i liked it in the end Grace Notes was one of the two best of the six the gypsies in the woods was the one i didn t like out of the six The Kelpie and Except the queen were good reads an embarrassment of Elves was the other top story overall the book was worth reading where 5 out of 6 stories are enjoyable it is worth it

    11. I picked it up because it had a Craig Shaw Gardner story in it I wanted to read Honestly, the Gardner story is probably the low point of the anthology since it requires previous knowledge of his Ebenezum Wuntvor books, great for those who d read them, but probably not for anyone who wasn t already a fan All the rest of the novella length stories were at least good, with the ones by Megan Lindholm, Tanith Lee and Kim Newman being really great This probably the most consistently high quality, them [...]

    12. A collection of six long stories which makes it a bit hard to give an overall rating Definitely above average, though, with a few of my favorite authors in the mix Tanith Lee UOUSFull of elements of disparate fairy tales, but mainly a mix of Cinderella and Tam Lin maybe The girl with the nasty stepmother and awful stepsisters is in modern day Britain, and the fairy lover doesn t do quite what one might expect I enjoyed this one quite a lot.Megan Lindholm Grace NotesUnusually humorous and uplifti [...]

    13. I ve liked those of the previous themed anthologies edited by Kaye that I ve read this one s a mixed bag, from the sublime Patricia McKillip s The Kelpie , set amid a group of Victorian artists and containing the least amount of magical trappings of the set to the ridiculous Craig Shaw Gardener s An Embarrassment of Elves , which I found so painful to read that I skipped to the next story about halfway through Liked Megan Lindholm s Grace Notes , Tanith Lee s UOUS , and Jane Yolen Midori Snyder [...]

    14. What a charming collection of short stories Each novella is startlingly different from the next and possesses its own voice, but still ties well into this elven themed collection My favourite tale of the bunch is UOUS by Tanith Lee, which turns the legends of faeries granting mortals three wishes on its head Its mythic tone suggests that this story is meant to directly mimic the sing song y tales of old, and Lee uses this much to her advantage as she develops an enticing but dangerous male elf l [...]

    15. I liked all the tales with the exception of the one by Mr Gardner which was a little too quirky for my tastes Though I think only a two of the tales showed the dark side of the Fey, the rest were not unusual for the genre.

    16. Like many short story novella collections, there are good ones and not so good ones I usually read these collections when a I m in between books and need something I can put down and pick up at my leisure and b when I m hunting for what new authors to check out In this case, I enjoyed the story by Megan Lindholm and will looking into of her stuff I also liked the story by Jane Yolen and Midori Snyder The one by Kim Newman was boring, and I didn t finish it Garnder s story was entertaining, but [...]

    17. Each of these short stories caught my interest although the 3rd took quite awhile to get it together.1 Uous A wonderful twist on the classic fey stories albeit not necessarily a happy ending2 Grace Notes A change of pace story where the protagonist actually grows up in the end.3 The Gypsies in the Wood Odd, very odd4 The Kelpie Probably my least favorite of the stories, but then I am not really into the Bohemian art scene.5 An Embarrassment of Elves Quirky and the writing reminds me of Robert As [...]

    18. A lovely collection of short stories, some darker than others All of them around Fairy myth and legend As with most short story collections I ended up skipping between stories Some I preferred than others Overall though, I really enjoyed this collection and it introduced me a couple of authors I hadn t read before I think UOUS was my favourite of them all and now I need to find of Tanith Lee s work.

    19. Decent collection of fantasy short fiction My favorites include Grace Notes by Megan Lindholm funny , The Gypsies in the Wood by Kim Newman stellar , and Except the Queen by Jane Yolen and Midori Snyder I detested An Embarrassment of Elves by Craig Shaw Gardner The Gardner story was poorly written and not in the least bit entertaining or funny It brought the entire collection down a notch.

    20. I am currently reading the third short story in this compilation The writing is above and beyond The first story is by Tanith Lee now I have to read all her other stories It is a spin on the traditional Cinderella story involving a teenager named Lois and the king of the fairies The seocnd follows a modern man, Jeffrey, and his mischievous brownie None of the tales so far feature happy rainbow fairies.

    21. I read this book when I was a good bit younger and I really loved the portrayal of fae folk as something other than frilly and pleasant However I did not love all the stories My favorites were Uous by Tanith Lee, Grace Notes by Megan Lindholm I totally want a house brownie and The Kelpie by Patricia A McKillip.

    22. Some really interesting takes on the Faerie legends in heree Tanith Lee story that starts off the album was particularly enjoyable, though I take a star off for the abject silliness that was An Embarrassment Of Elves Humourous fantasy has its place, but feels awkward next to serious fantasy.

    23. There are a few different stories in here from different authors They are all fun Each one is about a different kind of elf or elven creature Some are dark some are just different This is a book that I have read twice and will read again.

    24. Of the six stories in this little compendium, I recommend Gypsies in the Wood and Grace Notes especially, as well as UOUS, but definitely not The Kelpie An Embarassment of Elves was silly, and as for Except the Queen, meh read it if you want to

    25. The stories are a nice length I could usually get through one while waiting for a gymnastics class to end or any other short quiet time presented itself The one about the brownie was particularly good.

    26. Fantasy 2007 Six short stories about Elves and Fairies some funny, some extremely serious Authors included Tanith Lee, Kim Newman and Patricia McKillip Delightful, entrancing, and not for children, mostly This is a keeper.
