The Elves and the Shoemaker Article

Every week the Faerie Magazine website features an archived article from back issues. This week's article happens to be one of mine from Autumn 2008. It's about The Elves and the Shoemaker. To be honest, it's not one of my best articles, but it is about a very short, not much discussed fairy tale that yet remains part of our pop culture reference. Just a few months ago it was reference on The Big Bang Theory and I lose count of the other times it is alluded to. I didn't have much to work with but was determined to write about this little tale taht isn't even packaged by itself by the Grimms; it's combined with two other tales.

Here's a link to the article. It will only be around for a week or so...

You can also read the annotated tale on SurLaLune.
