Changeling lore and the little folk

I’ve been chatting to the wonderful Phil Rickman over at Phil the Shelf on BBC Radio Wales, about the more wicked incarnations of the fairies.┬áTheir Producer, Geoff Ballinger, lent his talents as a voice artist to create some audio extracts from The Hidden People to accompany the programme.

I also have an article called ‘The Unchanging Appeal of Changelings’ up now at #FolkloreThursday. I’ve been fascinated with changeling lore for a long time, and this explores some of the reasons why as well as some of the background to changeling beliefs and what happened to them in the Victorian era. The #FolkloreThursday Twitter feed is well worth a follow, if you have an interest in anything folkloric.
