Looking for books.
« on: July 11, 2006, 06:41:10 AM »
I'm going to Barnes and Nobles today to pick my Doctor Who novel book. I also want to find a book or two on Faeries. I've heard of the book "Good Faeries and Bad Faeries" But I see them as and books similiar to them a possibely fake. I'm looking for things like field guides and encyclopedias. So anyone got any suggestions? I'm looking for Irish faeries or just Celtic. I don't want to get too deep on the Norse faeries and no American, African, or Asian Faeries. I don't feel as if they are as special.

~Thanks!

The best thing about the Amazon viewer is that you can take a look at some of the contents to get a feel for the book before parting with cash!

The Faeryland Companion
Don't let the price fool you, i got this on a bargain bookshelf a few years back. :wink:

Good Fairies/Bad Fairies is a good book, as well as the 'Pressed Fairy Book'.

A Complete Guide to Faeries & Magical Beings[/url]

The Great Encyclopedia of Faeries[/url]

Take them both, Michael. As well as Fairy Tradition in Britain by Lewis Spence. From there you'll find many other reference books you might want to buy.
