"A book for anyone who has heard the horns of Elfin in the distance at twilight." – Neil Gaiman

Originally published in The New Yorker, this evocative collection of adult fairytales consists of sixteen sly and enchanting stories. Warner explores the morals, domestic practices, politics, and passions of the kingdoms of Elfin by following their affairs with mortals, and their daring flights across the North Sea. Enter a world where the fairy ruling classes are charming and insolent, and all levels of fairy society are heartless, in human terms. But love and hate strike at fairies of all ranks, as do poverty, abandonment and the passions of the heart.

Kingdoms of Elfin show Warner's consummate mastery of realist fantasy. Endorsed by Neil Gaiman and Greer Gilman, this new edition of Sylvia Townsend Warner's final collection of short stories brings her fantasy writing to a new readership.
