The Fire Quest - Crackle Mountain update


Crackle Mountain, my Asian Folktale blog, has been updated with a new story - The Fire Quest.
A small story about the Firefly Queen, illustrated with some beautiful works of Chinese and Japanese art.

I've recently added a new feature to Crackle Mountain - the Crackle Mountain BookStore, its an Amazon astore that I've built to specially cater for all of our Japanese and Chinese book cravings. Look for the link in Crackle Mountain's sidebar :) But if you'd like to check it out while you're browsing at Windbag and T, click here.

Firefly - the Japanese woodblock print above is by Ito Shinsui (1898-1972), published 1934. Two other of his prints feature in the new story.

Love the woodblock print, Florence. She is so delicate-looking, and since I collect fans, it is interesting to me.
