An illuminating exploration of Ireland’s ancient dark goddess—the beloved “phantom queen” of the Celtic world—with practices for modern-day devotees. The Morrigan is one of Pagan Ireland’s most famous--and notorious--goddesses. Her name translated as “phantom queen” or “great queen,” the Morrigan is famous for being a goddess of war, witchcraft and death, protection and retribution. This book also explores her patronage of motherhood, healing, shapeshifting, and the land. Classified among the Sidhe (fairies), the Morrigan dates back at least to Ireland’s Iron Age, but she is as modern as she is ancient―enjoying a growing contemporary and global following. Author Courtney Weber provides a guide for the modern devotee of this complex, mysterious goddess that encompasses practical veneration with modern devotionals, entwined with traditional lore and Irish-Celtic history.

An NYRB Classics Original Set just after World War I, An Ermine in Czernopol centers on the tragicomic fate of Tildy, an erstwhile officer in the army of the now-defunct Austro-Hungarian Empire, determined to defend the virtue of his cheating sister-in-law at any cost. Rezzori surrounds Tildy with a host of fantastic characters, engaging us in a kaleidoscopic experience of a city where nothing is as it appears—a city of discordant voices, of wild ugliness and heartbreaking disappointment, in which, however, “laughter was everywhere, part of the air we breathed, a crackling tension in the atmosphere, always ready to erupt in showers of sparks or discharge itself in thunderous peals.”

Twisted Fairy Tells the Untold Truths

Twisted Fairy Tells  the Untold Truths

If the original stories were leaked for profit, but the Wellingtons feel now is the time to expose the untold truths behind the Twisted Fairy Tells.

Every story. Every tale has a history. A background that differs from the narrative that has been shared with the world. But every story has some basis in truth created from the mind of someone with a purpose--a motive. Many millennia ago, the Wellington family was blessed with the curse being the keeper of the stories. Blessed to know the truth and dissimilarly cursed to live in solitude to safe keep a history that the world was not ready to acknowledge indeed existed beyond their imaginations. History is a butterfly effect of events intertwined between the lives of many prominent figures and people. What you know is not necessarily the truth? And what you are not aware of does not prove that it is not so. Behind our reality's veil is a world of mystery and lessons that a higher being hopes to learn from us as much as they attempt to teach us. Where old Saint Nick may not be as jolly, and Pinocchio just wants to be as Real as any other boy. The Yellow Brick Road is not only laid with gold and hopes and dreams, and the Easter Bunny only wanted to enjoy the peaceful serenity of his family. What if fairy tales and children's stories were equally part happy endings and part tastes of hell. If the original stories were leaked for profit, but the Wellingtons feel now is the time to expose the untold truths behind the Twisted Fairy Tells.
