Fairies are the subject of author Ronald Murphy Jr.’s new book, which he will sign and discuss at an upcoming Craftique Collections event.

Ronald Murphy Jr., who has penned books on the paranormal and strange creatures, will discuss and sign his new book, “On Faeries,” at Craftique Collections, 770 E. Pittsburgh St., Greensburg.

The 1-3:30 p.m. July 13 event is free and open to the public.

A regional author, Murphy will address fairies, the stuff of legend and many countries’ folklore, whether they are good or bad and where they come from, according to sponsoring Ligonier Valley Writers.

Refreshments will be served.

An author of paranormal and horror stories, Murphy’s fiction, essays and poetry have been published in many editions of the Ligonier Valley Writer’s annual literary magazine, “The Loyalhanna Review.”

The book signing is part of the long-running series “Meet Your Local Authors,” presented by Ligonier Valley Writers and Craftique in the Café at Craftique.

Murphy’s books, along with those of other local authors, are sold in the Craftique Book Nook.

The event may spark story ideas for the Ligonier Valley Writers’ Flash Fiction Contest, planners state, noting this year’s topic is elves and fairies. Submission deadline is Aug. 15.

The top three winners receive cash prizes; three honorable mentions receive professional editing and publication.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
