The Elfin Diary has ceased publication

Sorry folks, but personal circumstances mean that the Elfin Diary - first published 1990 - is, after 33 years, no longer "far out and still going strong". :(
This site will evenutally become an archive of articles published in the Diary's long history along with tributes to Elfin's founder Caroline Heaney and various Elfin-related ephemera. If that sounds interesting, follow Elfin Diaries on Twitter for updates, or subscribe to my mailing list:
