…the meeting place of the Sidhe

“ Avery performs a arresting accomplishment of linguistic and cultural detective work, an arcane high-wire act, as she channels the Fair Folk, with affluent imagery.”
~Creative Writing and Translation
It really was a lovely evening of storytelling, music making and conversation. The messages of your story were thought-provoking, but it was also engaging on a purely sonic level. Listening to the quality and rhythms of your voice felt sort of like getting a verbal massage, an easing of tension that allowed everyone to relax and center, intellectually and spiritually. Your whole presentation struck me as a perfect integration of the intellectual, spiritual, emotional and sensual.
~Tom Robotham, VEER Magazine
This book of poems and stories by Shannon Avery is a marriage of poetry, fiction, anthropology and ancient folklore that promises to amaze and mystify. ~Gotpoetry.com
For Avery, keeping the tradition of the Sidhe alive is a sacred calling.
~Elizabeth Kirwin, Fairies in America
Not since Simon Wagstaff, known to many as the
Space Wanderer, first tripped to the planet Shaltoon
to confront his mortality has a more gripping and
concise tale defining the fall of humanity been
penned. No surprise that this modern day Iliad is
presented by Shannon Avery, now unchallenged
as the only legitimate scribe of the Sidhe Universe.
From the mystery of the Garden of Eden to the battle
chronicles of the war for decency, the poetry flows
forth in a hypnotic, noir dream daring the reader
to try and put this one down for even a minute.
