Fairies at the bottom of your garden?

You all know I believe in fairies and I’m not the only one, but it seems that one believer wanted to see how much remains on fairy folklore in the UK today. Even though the whole thing was later admitted as a hoax, the creator of this had interesting reasons for doing so and ones that made me smile.

Do check out the hoax reveal story, for his reasons and pictures of his fake dead fairy.

and then if you haven’t already, perhaps have a look at the blurb on my novel Away With The Fairies also available in the US

 

Even though this was a hoax to me it does cheer me that there are still a great deal of people who want to believe in fairies.

  1. I was interested to read about the “dead fairy” hoax and the hoaxer’s reasons for doing this. I wrote a blog post about the Cottingley fairy photographs. http://scskillman.com/2012/08/06/mystical-experiences-and-glimpses-of-eternity-mini-series-part-4-cottingley-fairy-photographs-and-esoteric-teachings/. I believed in these fairies for a quite a long time, myself, from the moment I first found a book about them in the Theosophical Society HQ in London. This is a fascinating subject; Sir Arthur Conan Doyle was a champion of this belief for many years. I think there is an archetypal truth behind such beliefs.
