Strange Charms: Change Ever Present

Strange Charms: Change Ever Present

As is the way of things, more changes are coming to Quantum Fairy Tales. We will no longer be featuring quarterly issues, but will convert to a semi-annual format publishing twice a year, Spring/Summer (right now…hooray!) and Fall/Winter (sometime in October). The Gnomies  travel the world, write relentlessly, work like dogs, create art and baby gnomies, and change the world in a lot of other ways that take time away from our caverns full of your emails. But no matter where…

Totally depressing, yes, but now is not the time to be depressed. 2016’s finally here, and with the new year comes new resolutions, hope, and an entire year…

Strange Charms: Superstitious

Strange Charms: Superstitious

Today is our birthday! The Gnomies turn three years old today, and it’s extra special because it’s also our Lucky Issue Number 13. Some of you just visibly shuddered (we know, we are watching you) and a few of you bounced in place at the excellent coincidence that our 3rd anniversary issue, also our 13th issue, fell on Halloween. What makes a person superstitious? Why do we believe the stories we are told by childhood friends and cranky old grannies? If salt burns a…

Strange Charms: Happy Birthday, Harry Potter!

Strange Charms: Happy Birthday, Harry Potter!

This is a great day for speculative fiction lovers everywhere. Today marks what would be Harry Potter’s 35th birthday if he were walking among us muggles somehow other than in cosplay. Why would we take the time to celebrate such a moment as this at Quantum Fairy Tales? First of all, we need very little excuse to make a cake and eat the whole thing around here. Second, it is pretty unanimously agreed that the Harry Potter rage started a…
