Fae culture has never been the same since humans took over the world. Fae have become experts at finding ways to survive. In order to blend in, they sneak around and hide who they really are. Editors Joshua Palmatier and Patricia Bray provide helpful tips for Fae living secret lives in their new book The Modern Fae’s Guide to Surviving Humanity. The book is a compilation of short stories. The featured tales demonstrate what Fae can do to survive in the mortal world. Some try to take over the economy by starting companies like Walmart. Others steal babies and raise them as their own. Fae who can control the weather can also control society. The stories cover a wide range of topics. Readers should be aware that some of the content is disturbing. But overall, this is a fun compilation which fans of the fantasy genre will enjoy reading.
