Podcast–Reading from Beneath the Hallowed Hill

Listen to Megan’s trip to visit the fae in Beneath the Hallowed Hill with a couple of new paragraphs not in the current edition.

The latest Broad Pod, September 2011: Fairy Tales for Grown-Ups, is available for you to enjoy!


Thank you, L.C. Hu, writer, artist, and all around geek, for hosting and assembling this episode.  Dragons and magical beasts, peasants and princesses, heroes and tricksters­—fairy tales are some of the first stories many of us hear as children; is it any surprise that they continue to inspire us into adulthood? This month brings us five new interpretations of the fairy story, as varied and wonderful as the tales that enchanted us as children.

Catherine Lundoff  tells us of Vadija the Merry, whose laugh inspires a talespinner to begin a life-changing journey.  Shauna Roberts gives us a
science fiction retelling of the old tale Maid on the Shore.  Theresa Crater leads us down beneath the Tor to meet the fae, as we follow a young woman’s initiation to become a priestess. Vonnie Winslow Crist spins us a tale about a young man who makes a deal involving death, deceit, and
devotion with a swan maiden. And Trisha Woolridge enchants us with the story of  a young woman wandering her uncle’s manor, who discovers a curious portrait in a dusty side room.

So sit back, and let yourself be swept away by these five fantastic fairy stories.
