Episode 200: The F-word Revisited - Faeries in Urban Fantasy

 

Yes. The Moment has come. In concession to the dragons 200th episode, Jules is allowing Madeleine to talk about faeries again. This time, instead of focusing on the folklore, the dragons are looking at how faeries are used in urban fantasy; how that vast body of lore adapts so easily to a modern fantasy setting. From Red Caps to Tuatha de Dannan, faeries are ubiquitous in urban fantasy and the dragons have theories as to why. Under the microscope this week - The Dresden Files by Jim Butcher, The Weirdstone of Brizengamon by Alan Garner, The Folk of the Air by Holly Black, and many more. Join us for an otherworldly celebration of our 200th episode.
