The Monster Guys present: Faerie Tales – A Monster Guys Podcast Presentation!

Join us as we travel to the Old Country and far away lands in search of some of the world’s greatest legends and monsters. Journey with us to the land of Faeries! For each Faerie Tales Podcast, we will spin a classic or original tale from the land of the Fae Folk, and share in a brief conversation about the history, the lore, the mystery – and very often, the terror –  of the featured faerie.


D.C. & C. Michael McGannon share and discuss the classic story, “The Horned Women” by Lady Wilde, as collected by W.B. Yeats.

Witches, magic, spells, and hints back to the old gods of Ireland, before they diminished in size to become what many today consider the faerie folk.

It’s a short story, filled with many fine and interesting details, mystery, and wonder. It’s a story worth listening to, or reading, a couple of times, at least, in order to fully capture these details and the wonderful storytelling of a time-gone-by.

As always, we invite you to join the discussion in this week’s Faerie Tale!
