"The Brídeog": a Short Story

I am preparing to review a number of Brigit books and it suddenly occurred to me that this past summer a short story concerning Brigit appeared in Escape Clause: A Speculative Fiction Annual, edited by Clélie Rich.

In the story, "The Brídeog" by Casey Wolf*, a young woman disenchanted with country life interferes with her mother's heartfelt traditional welcoming of Brigit--to the distress of the mother and the great irritation of the Brídeog herself.

* Author of Finding Creatures & Other Stories (as C. June Wolf). Wattle and Daub Books (2008).
