More tales of the wicked bandit ‘King’ of the mountain. A lot of parochial attitudes to women, and a lot of unlikeable people abound in this episode. But will you still be awake when we reach the moment the narrator is struck by a beautiful woman? probably not. Story (07:31) New Merch Store!!

The bedtime story selected for your sleep is a Sleepy Time Tales original but followed up with a scholarly dissertation on the fae folk of Wales.   We return to the enchanted forest of some of our earlier original tales in the first story for tonight. A gentle musing on the nature of fae folk at midwinter.   And this is too short, so we learn a bit about the traditional beliefs of Welsh folks in olden times.

The time travelling classic sci fi is both interesting and a bit dry, so basically perfect for your bedtime needs.
