  1. Nice blog, good info! Thank you for sharing! I know most of these, but not all… Will be glad to find some, they sound really interesting. And the titles of a few show their authors support my opinion that there should be more new fairy-tales, with new, unseen characters (the classical, old like vampires, elves, dwarfs, wizards with sharp hats, fairies, etc. are too ordinary already?). That’s why I try some new in some of my books: weightless korks, glowing, living balls, Brown faces, fiery men, one-eyeds, night fruit, rock pieces, fish-keepers, etc sound more interesting and intriguing I guess?. Keep up the good work!
