The Elfin Diary has ceased publication

To all my readers and customers – I will no longer be publishing the Elfin Diary. Please see this blog post

This site will remain as an archive of articles published in the Diary over its long history. If you are the author of any of these, please get in touch so that I can credit you (or remove your article, if you wish).

If you want to be kept informed about progress on this site, and about my other ongoing projects, you can sign up to my quarterly (approx) newsletter here: Elfins News

This site is being revamped and redesigned. For all queries, email
