Description:
This is not your normal faerie tale.

Meet some modern day changelings: thieves, gamblers, surfers, artists, musicians, and even imaginary childhood friends who are bound together by their half-human half-fae blood.

An original anthology of short stories that exposes the hidden population of changelings who reside in the World of Darkness, a world very similar to our own. In order to maintain their faerie existence on earth, they must constantly struggle against Banality and hunt for Glamour, raw creative energy. If they are lucky, they may find a passageway back to their homeland, the Dreaming: the land of fae.

Qvamp says:

A World of Darkness novel dealing with changelings (faerie folk). If you enjoy novels about a role-playing game, this is a pretty good collection.

One story that deals with gays, 'The Stuff of Life to Knit You', is very strongly recommended, and shows the outcome we'd love to see befall every homophobe out there.
