|Plot Summary of Smith of Wootton Major|
|"The cook must prepare the traditional Great Cake for the village children's party, unbeknownst to him the star amongst the silver trinkets bestows a special gift on the one who finds it. The lad grows up to be the finest of iron smiths, but prone to disappear, wandering abroad in parts unknown - a land of strange magic, a privilege and gift of the few. A fable, a myth, and a parable at the edge of the worlds of mortal man and faery, it should be more widely known."
Michael JR Jose, Resident Scholar
