Fairy-Tale Files, published once weekly, feature three variations of a fairy tale chosen by one of Fairy Tale Review’s Assistant Editors.
A student must stand guard in a church and watch over a witch’s corpse for three nights in Viy, a 1967 Russian horror film based on the Gogol folk tale of the same name.
South-soaked indie band Futurebirds titles their new album Baba Yaga, a record the band describes as “some mythical creature out in the woods that only exists in our imaginations.”
As part of the installation for her MFA thesis, essayist/visual artist Sarah Minor creates a tunnel book fusing together Baba Yaga with the story of Old Believer Agafia Lykova.
This edition of Fairy-Tale Files is brought to you by Fairy Tale Review Assistant Editor Tommy Mira y Lopez.
