Faerie Familiars and Zoomorphic Witches - deadbutdreaming

A witch's ability to shapeshift into critters or having an intelligent familiar may seem to be the stuff of fairy tales, but Neil Rushton isn't so quick to discount these memes. These stories have deep roots in our culture and Neil Rushton peels away the layers to reveal their origin, and enduring importance in the 21st century. If you're still hung up on the fairy aspect, John Rimmer's found two books after wandering Up The Airy Mountain And Down The Rushy Glen. More like Everything You Wanted To Know About Leprechauns (but were afraid to ask). Find out why John's pushing Bob Curran's treatise on The Truth About Leprechauns and Varla Ventura's Fairies, Pookas, and Changelings as essential summer reading. (CS)
