    In the, admittedly very unlikely, event that I should win this, I am in no doubt what quotation to choose: “The love of Faery is the love of love: a relationship towards all things, animate and inanimate, which includes love and respect, and removes or modifies the spirit of possession and domination. Without it even plain ’Utility’ will in fact become less useful; or will turn to ruthlessness and lead only to power, ultimately destructive.” (From the essay on “Smith of Wootton Major”)

    I cannot think of a more appropriate quotation to put on a series of books that are, after all, the finest example of the love of Faery.
