Fairfielder's fairy tale picked for anthology

A story by Fairfield author Edward Ahearn is included in an anthology of 18 fairy tales produced by a British publisher and released this month.

Ahearn's "The Good Fairy" was selected for the collection "Thrice Upon A Time," published by Alfie Dog Fiction. It became available in paperback and for download on Aug. 21, the publisher said.

The anthology includes tales by authors from around the globe, Alfie Dog said in a news release.

Ahearn is a retired paper company executive and one-time government intelligence officer who has lived in Fairfield for 35 years. He has published 46 stories and a novella, according to the release.

In his profile at the literary newsletter Poets&Writers, Ahearn said, "I normally write sardonic to dark fantasy and horror stories, but do stray into children's fairy tales."

"Thrice Upon A Time" is available from www.alfiedog.com or through Amazon and other online retailers and bookstores.
