Goblin Market

Have you ever wondered what happened to the faeries you used to believe in? Back then, they lived at the bottom of the garden, and left rings in the grass, and sparkling glamour in the air, to remind you where they were.

But that was then – now you might find them in places you might not think to look. They might be stacking shelves, delivering milk, or weighing babies at the clinic. Open your eyes and keep your wits about you, and you might just see them.

But no one is looking any more, and that is hard for a Faerie Queen to bear: Titania has had enough. And when Titania stamps her foot, everyone in Faerieland jumps. Publicity is what they need: television and magazines, but that sort of thing is much more the remit of the bad boys of the Unseelie Court, the ones who weave a new kind of magic: the World Wide Web.

Here you’ll find Puck relearning how to fly; Leanne the agent who really is a vampire; Oberon’s Boys playing cards behind the wainscoting; Black Annis, the bag-lady from Hainault; all gathered in a Restoration comedy that is strictly 21st century.
