Do you have a good book referral for fairy-lore? I like all lores. :)


In the U.S., Barnes & Noble published a decent compendium of (mostly) 19th-century folk tales by Yeats, Lady Wilde, and their like. I was given a copy as a gift, and was pleasantly surprised at the quality and original sources (as much as possible).

I always thought of Hag as a woman of a certain age. i.e. myself these days. But I guess the dictionary does confirm witch and imply ugly. Hmmm.

The Wailing Banshee or the Lilting Banshee could come in handy. Though I'm responding too late to be much help this year.

We hags do take our time.

I'll do a bookish recommendation:

Tunes and songs around the theme of the supernatural (although not particularly Halloween-ish themed), from the folklore collection. Book and 2 CDs ISBN 978-0-9565628-3-8

See here

Tried to go to the "here" and was told that the checkout was disabled. Discouraging.

Amazon knows naught of it.

Best wishes.

Strange. I just gave it a go and stopping short of making the payment it worked for me. A location restriction?

The book is also widely available elsewhere , including on Amazon (sent links in PM)

Worked for me too. (But, like you, I stopped short of paying ...)
