The Heart of Faerie Oracle  by Brian & Wendy Froud

Reviewed by Dave Truesdale

Fans of Brian Froud will be pleased to see The Heart of Faerie Oracle, a 160 page hardcover book, and its 68 companion oracle card deck, each card featuring one of Froud's beautiful color illustrations. This is the companion volume to both his 2000 "The Faeries' Oracle" card deck and (in part) his 2007 book World of Faerie. Along with interior (two-tone) reproductions of each card, Wendy provides the accompanying text, explaining the meaning and import of each of the cards. The book is divided into nine chapters with titles such as:  How to Use the Cards, About the Cards, The Faerie Queens, The Archetypes, Sprites, and The Ladies.

Reviewing stuff by people you know can be hard, because you don’t want to hurt or offend your friends even unintentionally. But part of being a writer is learning how to take criticism; if your friends object to your honest opinion about their work, then it’s their problem, not yours. That said, I had no qualms about reviewing Derryl Murphy and William Shunn’s Cast a Cold Eye because although I don’t know William Shunn, I used to know Derryl Murphy quite well, and he’s a professional. He was a professional photographer at one time; and he’s striving to be a professional writer—and part of being a professional writer is growing a thick skin. Because, face it—even criticism from friends and relatives can get under your skin.
