First, let me say I found this book to be enlightening as well as entertaining. Maybe because I have been a Rennie for 28 years, and have attended over 30 different faires in that time. Or, maybe since I have seen or dealt with many strange and different happenings such as they address in the stories from these many different faires. It seems to me that some of the stories bring a realism or have been taken in part from real events. Now, I don't know for sure if any or all of these examples written in each story of this book were taken from some true accounts, but they are well put together and thought out. What I do know is the feel and atmosphere, when included with some people we happen to know, or that come to mind as a different name in the book, brings home parts of a reality. It isn't often that there is a book written about our hobby, so to have read this new addition was a pleasure. Knowing one of the authors (Jean), helps a lot to. I think anyone who attends faires, reenactment groups or are just Medievalists would like this. It brings the world of the Renaissance Faire with an added twist to light for everyone.
