The Girl Who Ruled Fairyland - For a Little While...

Image via Tor.com, illustrated by the awesome Ana Juan!

Since I am all about the Catherynne M Valente love today, I thought I'd make sure you guys new about the short story prequel to The Girl Who Circumnavigated Fairyland in a Ship of Her Own Making.  It's called "The Girl Who Ruled Fairyland - For a Little While", and it concerns the  intriguing character of Queen Mallow...
In which a young girl named Mallow leaves the country for the city, meets a number of Winds, Cats, and handsome folk, sees something dreadful, and engages, much against her will, in Politicks of the most muddled kind.
It can be found here on Tor.com, and I'd highly recommend it for fans of the Girl...  =)

  1. I love the illustration to this too! I am going to have to bookmark this until later tonight, thanks Misty :)

  2. I very much enjoyed this story. So much detail and such great descriptive and enchanting names. Names I would have created as a child but as an adult I'd have to work at to come up with. I love the names!
    And the winds with their cats and how the winds and their lovers can never be together, so bittersweet. I love that story. I'd love a whole story on just that. I am sorry I have read The Girl Who Circumnavigated Fairyland.... yet.
    I definitely need to.


  3. I HAVE heard of this, but I haven't read it yet. Thank you for the reminder!


Tell me all your thoughts.
Let's be best friends.
