Many of us have little statues, or even toys, made in the form of a fairy or an elf. They are� some of my favorite collectibles along with dragons.
Most of the fairies and elves we see in artwork, posters, t-shirts and sculpted into figurines appear to be very friendly and often beautiful. In reality, that is at least in the legends and lore, elves and fairies are rarely harmless or cute.
Paul D Roberts, a True Ghost Tales guest writer, has written a very interesting article about these wee folk of legend and lore.
Roberts tells us about the history and background of mankind’s beliefs in fairies and elves.
You may be very surprised to find out how similar these creatures are to aliens. Is it possible that the truth behind the legends of fairies and elves actually originated from encounters with aliens?
Roberts also outlines the major types of fairies and elves with descriptions for most of them. Be sure to read A Look at Elves and Fairies and post your comments and ideas here.
