With the exception of monthly subscription despatch, all has been curiously quiet on the Enchanted front for the last couple of months. So it was with interest that we investigated a mysterious missive that made its way to us all the way from the Real World. The only name provided for the sender was simply Snout. We are suspicious. Surely not correspondence from one of the notorious Pygg Brothers (Pygg the Elder, Pygg the Younger and Pygg in the Middle, proprieters of the dubious property rental outfit Pygg Lets, recently seen in court pitted against none other than Mr. B. B. Wolf)? If so, why the pseudonym – ‘snout’ surely being somewhat ‘on the nose’, so to speak? Or perhaps it is an elaborate double bluff – but in any case, why?

Ever in search of the very latest news from the Enchanted Realms, an undercover researcher has provided this link to an original version of The Emperor’s New Clothes by author Dylan Evans found in the Entelechy Journal (from Fall 2007 – time travels differently within the Enchanted Realms). A key element to this traditional tale is the inability of the title character to see that he has been fooled. Evans takes this element of willful blindness to create a new short tale that almost drips with irony.
