So, you’ve already listened to the podcast from this morning, and you want more stories. Well… I’m here to tell ya, you’re in luck. I recently heard a rumour that there are people out there who have not only never seen the excellent UK stop-motion animation version of The Fool of the World and the Flying Ship, there are even people who are actually not familiar with this story, a shocker to me since I like this one so much I’m writing a serial based on it. Since witches have been known to curse people for lesser offenses, I’m here to remedy the situation. Below, I’ve left handy-dandy links to all five parts (about 60 minutes) of Cosgrove Hall’s production of this most excellent fairy tale.
Anyway, it might not be the usual surreal horror that I like to recommend, but it’s still one of my earliest influences. Russian and East European folktales captured my muse back when I was un piccolo bambino and I don’t ever plan on growing out of them.
