The Return of the Pixie (detail)
At first there were rumours: murmerings of fear in the frontier provinces. There were a series of strange incidents and a sensation of dread was everywhere. The authorites were dismissive at first: these incidents were sporadic: mere coincidence or happenstance, they said.
But eventually it became obvious, even to them: the pixie had returned. A state of emergency was declared.
