[a fairy!] This section is not very extensive yet, but I am hoping to expand it. I have only included collections that are either only stories about faeries, or have a substantial number of stories about faeries. The folklore collections containing a few faery stories are almost infinite, so I have chosen not to list them (yet, anyway). Please note that this list is of folklore collections; for fiction, please see the Novels and Short Story Collections section.
