This book, once found, can’t be ignored
Though it contains things once abhorred.
Just read it once, and you’ll agree,
Nereena’s one night creature spree
Is just the thing you’ve waited for
To make the autumn so much more,
Than just another season spent
Awaiting winter’s long descent.
Fairies have been resident in the human imagination for many centuries. In fact, their very existence relies on being imagined. The FantaFairies series of books, drawings and other artifacts exist to preserve and encourage that magical human energy that makes the existence of fairies possible, and makes our human lives more interesting and enjoyable.
Many know of the improbable city of Venice, Italy, perched off of the northeastern Italian coast, just barely keeping its head above the rising Adriatic Sea. This city, too, exists and survives (and some would say fully depends) on the imagination and dreams of mankind. This makes it the natural place of origin for an entire species of fairy, called FantaFairies, who issue forth from this improbable place to embrace and protect the far-flung cities, towns and hamlets, the holidays, the music, art and other yearnings most precious to the mortal humans chasing their dreams across the surface of the Earth.
This is the story of one FantaFairy in particular, who chose a different path from the rest; who chose to stay deep beneath the Venetian canals to embrace and protect and watch over the dark things that make Halloween what it is today. Meet Nereena, the Fairy Queen of Halloween. And on one night a year, you just might meet the oozing, slinking, creeping things in her care.
