Faerie Magazine #19 On Newstands

The latest issue of Faerie Magazine is now available on newstands. (You should be able to find it at Barnes and Noble or Borders as well as many indies or you can subscribe online.) The magazine has abandoned naming issues by seasons and is assuming a simple numbering system, thus this is issue 19.

Per usual, I have a fairy tale history column in this issue. This time it's "Who's the Fairest?: Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs." I really enjoyed writing this one and came to appreciate Snow White even more than ever. The article is also being adapted to appear in my next fairy tale anthology of Snow White and Sleeping Beauty tales from around the world.

But wait, I have not one, but two articles in this issue. I also wrote "Anne Isabella Thackeray Ritchie & Her Victorian Fairy Tales" for your reading enjoyment. There isn't much available to read about Thackeray Ritchie beyond two rare biographies and a few academic papers, but she is a fascinating author and literary figure from the Victorian era.

Of course, there are many more articles in the issues, too. There is a great one about illustrator Ruth Sanderson, a column by Brian Froud, and many more interesting bits and pieces.

You have about a month to find this since the next issue is slated to start appearing on newsstands on March 15.
