A rich collection of Greek folklore, Fairy Tales of Modern Greece, was published in 1930 and authored by Theodore P. Gianakoulis and Georgia H. MacPherson. Gianakoulis collected the tales from those around him, including those told to him in his youth. His own saga of fairies is included in the story “The Fairy Hunter,” and the fairies in the stories are borne of nature. The authors’ tales of fairies have them as supernatural beings who have a love of the beautiful. In the foreword, Gianakoulis shares how the tales can be found in any part of Greece, with variants of the names and details; he himself had to piece them together.
