“Forget everything you heard about little creatures with butterfly wings. That is the product of Victorian storybook illustrators. Long ago fairies were real people. Even the word fairy is wrong. It means enchantment, describing what they do, not who they are. They call themselves Elfin.”


from Chapter 12    The Book of Adam and Eve
