The phenomenal success of Tolkien and JK Rowling have restored magical folk to the adult world. The reader will discover that Hobbits hail from Tolkien's aunt's manor farm Bag-End and Harry Potter's Master Dobbs is part of ancient folklore. Fairies are often nothing like the ones conjured up by writers and Hollywood. Some are worse than soccer hooligans. They are irascible, blood-sucking, bed-hopping. A tidal-wave of new fairy sightings has been uncovered by the digitisation of British and Irish local newspapers and other local ephemera, and by the Fairy Census conducted by the authors.
