Speculative Fiction...in Song

One of my fave Loreena songs:

Loreena McKennit sings "The Bonny Swans" live

To find out more about the ballad that Loreena used for her version, go here.

Patricia Wrede, fantasy author, was inspired by Loreena's "The Bonny Swans" to write "The Cruel Sisters", telling the story from the POV of the third sister, which the song alludes to in "he had daughters-one, two, three."
