‘The Forgotten and the Fantastical 2’ stories – ‘Rêve/Revival’. For centuries human invention has been advancing, harnessing and exploiting the environment, explaining and disproving legends and eradicating our relationship with the natural world. Elizabeth Hopkinson’s tale explores, through a retelling of ‘Sleeping Beauty’, how industry and political feuding affects the land and its people and how rekindling our relationship with nature and myth might help us build a better future.
Elizabeth Hopkinson is a fantasy author and writer of the novel ‘Silver Hands’. ‘Rêve/Revival’ sits alongside 16 other short stories in ‘The Forgotten and the Fantastical 2’, published by Mother’s Milk Books. Copies are available from their website.
