Subject: RE: The Fey: stories and lore, sources pleas
For a modern take on it, I enjoyed the first three books of the Fey series by Kristine Kathryn Rusch Here
And thanks for starting this discussion. It's brought my attention to the fact that the series has continued. I hadn't spotted there were later books.
I'll also echo the recommendation for "Puck of Pook's Hill" & "Rewards and Fairies"
Mustn't forget the obligatory plug for Terry Pratchett: "Lords & Ladies" :
"Elves are wonderful. They provoke wonder.
Elves are marvellous. They cause marvels.
Elves are fantastic. They create fantasies.
Elves are glamorous. They project glamour.
Elves are enchanting. They weave enchantment.
Elves are terrific. They beget terror.
The thing about words is that meanings can twist just like a snake, and if you want to find snakes look for them behind words that have changed their meaning.
No one ever said elves are nice.
Elves are bad."
