Tales of Bedlam

Mar 21, 2019

It’s a rare thing, indeed, to find a Fairy Tale Ogre that isn’t bent on having a human buffet or causing general mayhem. We were privileged to run across this story from a very talented Author on our quest to find nuggets of hidden wisdom in tales both old and new! We really do hope you enjoy this modern “coming of age” Fairy Tale as much as we did and please be sure to visit Ameilia’s Blog “Fairy Stories and Other Tales” for more amazing stories. 

Amelia Brown started writing officially as a humor columnist for her university's newspaper. In September of 2016, she won an honorable mention in the Writers of the Future contest for her short story “A Womb at the Edge of Space." She will be published in the 81words anthology sometime in the next two years.  And she is the author behind the blog Fairy Stories & Other Tales, recently featured in the Warren Stories section of Dead Rabbits Books literary press website. Amelia has just semi-retired at great risk and at far too young an age from academic life in Cambridge, UK, to write in the quantity her heart desires.

Wondering what Tales of Bedlam is all about?

Tales of Bedlam is a podcast started in July 2018 by two introverts looking to inject a little humor and hopefully a bit of education into the fairytales collected by the brothers Jakob and Wilhem Grimm in the early 1800s.

With some listener feedback, we have recently decided to expand beyond the just the Brothers Grimm tales and are incorporating worldwide fairytales and folklore.

These tales, that were originally passed down orally from generation to generation, imparting worldly morals, are a fascinating look at a bygone era.

From the Bedroom Studios of Bricklebrit Inc, Micah and Dustin dive into a different story every week, searching for nuggets of hidden wisdom with a healthy dose of comedic commentary.
