    A complete short story, a bit exciting being about crime and murder, but still boringly told so sleep won’t be a problem





    A story from G. K. Chesterton about a group of English Police officers trying to hunt a dangerous, wanted Irish man. Tragedy strikes and all is not as it seems.

    Bedtime Tales of Fairies

    Bedtime Tales of Fairies

    The bedtime story selected for your sleep is a Sleepy Time Tales original but followed up with a scholarly dissertation on the fae folk of Wales.  
    We return to the enchanted forest of some of our earlier original tales in the first story for tonight. A gentle musing on the nature of fae folk at midwinter.
     
    And this is too short, so we learn a bit about the traditional beliefs of Welsh folks in olden times. Apologies for terrible Welsh/Celtic pronunciations.
