Not trolls this time - although the proper trolls are, I'm told rather put out by being associated with spotty teenagers. Nor is it gnomes, which will disappoint Steiner-watchers.
It is firstly unicorns:
"Archaeologists of the History Institute of the DPRK Academy of Social Sciences have recently reconfirmed a lair of the unicorn rode by King Tongmyong, founder of the Koguryo Kingdom,"
This is wonderful news. Although it all seems wrong. We all know that unicorns live in enchanted woods and have a thing for virginal girls (or something like that). So I wonder whether we've been told the full story of King Tongmyong? Could this legendary king have really been a girl?
And then we have vampires:
The story of Sava Savanovic is a legend, but strange things did occur in these parts back in the old days," said 55-year-old housewife Mil-ka Prokic, holding a string of garlic in one hand and a large wooden stake in another, as an appropriately moody mist rose above the surrounding hills.
Indeed, the local council in this remote part of Serbia has even advised the pocketing of garlic and the waving of crosses!
In other news there are still fairies at the bottom of my garden. ....
