"Barney Doyle at at his cluttered workbench, attempting to fix Olaf Andersen's ancient power mower for the fourth time in seven years."
"When successful screenwriter Phil Hastings decided to move his family from sunny California to ramshackle farmhouse in New York state, the old Kessler place seemed like an ideal base from which to pick up the threads of his career as a novelist. But the Kessler place was originally known as Erl King Hill - 'Hill of the Elf King'. Soon Phil's wife and daughter, and their two mischievous eight-year-old boys, began to sense that strange presences were moving in the centuries-old wood that tangled around their new home like the enchanted web of a huge, malignant spider...
Faerie Tale is a major work of the imagination in which a master of modern fantasy turns his pen to the timeless worlds of ancient Celtic myth - and the unspeakable terror that lurks beneath the ordered surface of modern everyday life." -- from the back cover
