Once Upon a Blog . . .

Hello everyone, this is Adam Hoffman.  For those who don't know, I'm a library science student, amateur storyteller and lifelong comic book geek.  Since the age of 12 I've loved comic books and superheroes and have also had an appreciation for other different science fiction and fantasy properties.  Over time, my love of super-heroes led me to the folk and tall tale heroes of the American West as well as to mythology and storytelling.  When I got into storytelling, I started to gravitate more and more to traditional folk tales and what most would call fairy tales.  It wasn't until I found myself sporting a "Jack and the Beanstalk" tee-shirt and dropping references to stories like "The Brave Little Tailor" at my job that I realized that I wasn't just a fairy tale fan.  I was a straight-up fairy tale geek!  So, that brings me to the purpose of this blog.  My aim is to fuse fable and fandom in one place.  To post about folk tales and fairy tales with all the dorky enthusiasm of (and a few references to) science fiction and fantasy fandom. 

A few ground rules for any fellow fairy tale fans that choose to comment on my posts: 1) Keep it polite and 2) keep any swearing to a minimum.  There's no reason not to keep this site nice.  I hope to have some new content up at least once a week.  So, stay tuned.

Until the story continues, I remain . . .

Adam Hoffman,
Fairy Tale Geek
