There is a lot of talk about resistance on the interwebs right now.

Strange Charms – Themes in 2017

Strange Charms – Themes in 2017

In the words of my favorite movie Labyrinth, “Through dangers untold and hardships unnumbered [the Gnomies] have fought [our] way here to”… bring you Quantum Fairy Tales 17th issue! But really, we’ve fought through high winds, flooding, power outages, and giant falling trees to bring you our fall issue. Hurricane Matthew has not been kind to those of us on the east coast, but now the worst is over and the time has come to celebrate! As part of the…

Strange Charms: The Rebirthiness of Spring

Strange Charms: The Rebirthiness of Spring

Here we are, another spring has arrived in our hemisphere. That means all kinds of pollen and bugs and green things sprouting all over. Baby birds squawk and the naked trees grow new green clothes. Quantum Fairy Tales has grown a bit as well. We have a lovely new website, a couple of new members, and new plans for 2016.

Brrr, Baby, It’s Cold Outside (Yup. We’re talking about the weather. Sort of.) Okay, winter’s kind of sucked, hasn’t it? Storms like Goliath and Jonas did their mean, stormy things, and we’ve been clobbered by snow, tornadoes, and an omnipresent, “let’s just hide under the covers until it all goes away” gross.

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…

Strange Charms

Spring is here once again. Outside everything is changing, waking up, warming up, and getting ready to bloom. People are walking around red-eyed (not because they are cyborgs) and sneezing. Little animals are being born, gardens are being planted, and the gnomies are dusting off their winter chops; editing, sorting, sniffing and changing things up. First of all, this is our last issue with the incomparable Seaside Sprite. She leaves a hole in our hearts, but she is off to…
