A Most Wonderful Book

September 8, 2014

sfThe response to the publication of Seeing Fairies: From the Lost Archives of the Fairy Investigation Society, Authentic Reports of Fairies in Modern Times by Marjorie T. Jonhson has been swift and overwhelmingly positive. Fortean researcher Theo Paijmans kicked it off with a Tweet: “I think this is the most wonderful book published so far this year.” Author and fortean Janet Bord, writing in Magonia,  found the experience of reading this book “a disturbing experience. [The stories in this book] give the impression that the countryside is heavily populated with little people who live alongside us but are never seen by most of us. Can this really be true?…Wherever the truth is to be found, this book is essential reading for anyone with the slightest interest in fairies and the Little People.” Chris Woodyard of Haunted Ohio added: “Whatever we call them, and whatever guise they wear, it is fascinating to see the points at which the worlds of the fairies and other supernatural entities intersect.” The Fairy Folklorist commented: “This book truly does open a great many new and exciting doors into fairy research…An essential read for all dedicated fairy folklorists!” And Fred Lobb of Chinese Folktales summed it all up, saying “Seeing Fairies is a boon to the scholarship on folklore. I highly recommend it for anyone interested in psychology, anthropology and parapsychology.”
