On the Importance of Fairy Tales Published in the Kyanite Press Journal of Speculative Fiction Fairy Tales and Fables Winter Digest

Thrilled that my article, On the Importance of Fairy Tales, was used as the guest foreword in the Kyanite Press Journal of Speculative Fiction Fables and Fairy Tales Winter Digest. In this short foreword I look briefly at the roots of traditional story telling and their inherent shared authorship; at how they act as societal mirrors; and at their role in child development. Accompanying this, my fairy tale, Baba Yaga and the Ailing Child, has also been included in the volume, an original story with its roots in Slavic folklore. More information on this to follow…

Do you have a favourite traditional tale or one that holds significant importance to you / your culture? Would love to hear any thoughts in the comments box below.
