kahoku Wrote:- "der schamanische weg des träumens" ("the shamanic way of dreaming") by carlo zumstein (terrible writing style. you cannot wait for him to get to the point. he keeps saying: "blah blah, but we'll get to that later. blah blah blah, but more about that later..." and then, when you finally get to the exercises, they are half a page long and then he starts babbling about something else again. really annoying.)
still reading some more, and my wish list is looooong.
I hate when books do that.
Back on topic, about the Fae I recommed most of what Brian Froud has written -- I second what other people have told me in the past; although I have not managed to get a copy of "Faeries" yet, I have been hooked on his work since I was around 10.
Any book on mythology, legends, etc can be helpful if you check the POVs, etc... which is usually "different perspectives are always welcome".
I also recommend the book on Irish legends, "Ancient Legends, Mystic Charms and Superstitions of Ireland" by Lady Wilde.
ETA: I do not recommend any "dream interpretation" guides; as most of it present a bit dogmatic vision of possible symbols... which do not always mean the same for everybody, they are highly subjective.
