  1. Please let me know where to get a copy of “The Secret Commonwealth and the Fairy Belief Complex”. I’m hoping you bring it to London ON this weekend. Thanks!!

  2. Great stuff, keep going. I am doing a Masters in fine art painting, Liminality in Irish mythology is my chosen subject.

    • Thanks for the kind words.
      Do you have a website. That’s a hard subject to capture in a visual art, I’d love to see some of how you explore that. :/)
