Overview

If you are looking for a serious tale with a redeeming moral, find another book. This is a foible, not a fable, thus it has no intrinsic value whatsoever, save to make you smile. These stories should be used with caution, not taken internally, and avoided by those who have a congenital lack of humor, who take themselves and the world too seriously, and those looking for something serious to read. So take a detour through the fickle world of Foible, where a sense of humor is your only weapon against incomprehension. These stories are a silly (and hopefully entertaining) romp through the land of Faerie, poking fun at everything you love about fairy tales, geek culture, and very possibly things that have very little to do with either. Finally available as a complete (albeit short) collection!

On Princesses: Yes, the world needs another fairytale, just like your grandmother needs a Dwarf Grunge Band. Of course this is not just another fairy tale, it is a completely irreverent celebration of geeks, fairy goth-mothers, small annoying dogs, and yes, princesses.

On Heroes: This little saga pokes fun at bureaucracy, paperwork, heroes, and the latest fad in looming environmental crises. Find out how to save the world in six easy lessons, or not.

On Sleeping Beauties: Just when you thought you knew everything about a certain fairy tale, here comes a take on the story fit to baffle even renowned scholars in the genre, along with most everyone else. Take another jaunt into the land of Foible where most anything can happen, and often does, but be warned, this tale should not be read by those who take themselves, or their literature, too seriously.

On Dragons: Of course we can't leave such topics as lawyers and a college education alone, here's another tale from the land of Foible!

About the Author

Once upon a time there was a sensible young lady who pursued a practical career, but finding it far less fulfilling than the proponents of the modern fairytale promulgate, she then married a clergyman, much to everyone’s astonishment, including her own, and in proper fairytale fashion keeps house for the mysterious gentleman in a far away land, spending most of her time in company with a very short, whimsical person who can almost speak English. She enjoys fantasy, fairy tales, and adventure stories and her writing reflects this quaint affectation. She considers Happy Endings (more or less) a requisite to good literature and sanity, though real stories never, truly end.
