The Metaphysics of Faerie Trees - Dead But Dreaming

Neil Rushton takes us on a tour of stories from several countries which feature these trees in folklore and ponders the possibility of something beyond superstition to explain man's connection to these woody wonders. Meanwhile, Massimo Polidoro walks us through the forest of hoaxes and misunderstandings in The Return of the Fairies. And staying with misunderstandings, we learn that the Cambridge Ghost Girl is Alive and Well, which is no doubt a great relief to her grandfather, who has debunked the viral Facebook photo. (LP)
