Overview

The Fey have been with us since the beginning, sometimes to our great joy but often to our detriment. Usually divided (at least by us silly humans) into two courts, the first volume of A Chimerical World focuses on the Seelie Court: the court we humans seem to view as the "good" faeries. But "good" and "evil" are human concepts and as alien to the Fey as their mindsets are to us.

Inside you will find 19 stories that delve into the world of the faeries of the Seelie Court, from authors both established and new, including George S. Walker, Eric Garrison, and Alexandra Christian.

But be warned: these faeries are nothing like Tinker Bell.

I read and enjoyed the Unseelie companion collection to this some while ago. But I must admit there’s something refreshingly different in this Seelie volume, with its unobtrusive emphasis on light over dark. Sure, these fae aren’t all sweetness and laughter, but the stories leave you comfortably satisfied without weighing down mind and heart. Enticing rather than enthralling perhaps, this is a thoroughly enjoyable read – just watch out if you have a cat. Dead fairies on the doormat are not good for you. From a fantastically fun and Extra-Ordinary opening tale by B.C. Brown, through my favorite cat-tale, Dead Fairy Doormat by George S. Walker… to an extraordinary take on good old-fashioned fairy-tales with The Beggar-Knight & the Lady Perilous by Matthew A. Timmins, through to… well, through to the end; all the tales in this collection are smoothly written and satisfying to read, sometimes edgy, sometimes sweet, sometimes scary, always neat. I really enjoyed this book, kept on reading from one story to the next, and wished it didn’t have to end. Disclosure: I can’t remember how I got this one, but I loved it.
