Well presented - much material available in other books but that's no problem - that is inevitable in covering this sort of subject which relies on testimonies from bygone ages when fairies were widely accepted and interpreted in various ways as being either dead people, interdimensional entities, devils etc etc fallen angels, etc - and in the a modern concept as being related to UFO phenomena. Somewhat in the vein of the Jacques Vallee books which were the best UFO books you could buy at the time since he does not go along with the 'outer space' theory as being the ONLY answer. Bord here does not have a final answer either, but the book is a really good read, even if the material is found elsewhere. Ideal for a newbie to occult or UFO phenomena.

This is a very interesting book. Obviously rational modern people do not usually believe in fairies. One can accept, as Katherine Briggs has suggested, that fairies always happened in the past, and so fairies seem to be (to me) something that people thought they experienced in 19thC Ireland or Scotland. It is therefore a shock to hear about sightings in the late 20thC, in places like London. There is also a small selection of photographs, taken well before the creation of Photoshop (the Cottingly fairies were of course a cut and paste job!). Since I have recently written a novel dealing with Irish fairies (who are descended from angels, human sized, and sexy) I was disappointed to find that most of the fairies sighted were short, ugly and wearing red coats. The striking thing was how similar the recent sightings were, and also how international these stumpy creatures, more gnome than fairy I'd say, were. However, when "The Malice of Fairies" is published people will be able to see which ones they prefer!

Meanwhile, I enjoyed the book because it also, by implication, deals with ideas about belief, evidence and what we are really seeing before us. Most of the encounters are very simple and consist mainly of simple sightings, with no real interactions, but it does make you wonder what exactly is going on in the world.

I found this to be a rather short book but not bad nonetheless.
It details first-hand accounts with faeries,offers information on explained events and has quite a few faerie pictures.
I own another book along the same lines as this and it seems to be a variation of the same theme,cute and pretty with some good informtion but nothing that id class as a 'non-put-downer'!!

Whoever wrote this book does! Fallen Angels, Sprites, Fairies; this book talks about many magical creatures and the encounters humans have served with them. It may not be photographic evidence, but it it very convincing and also brings out many strong points consisting whether these are mythical creatures or not. If you're a fairy lover like me then I guarantee you will love this book. It is a great introduction to the world of the "Little People".
