An excellent, and clever, short fairy tale. 'Oberon Asked' is even more enjoyable if you're familiar with British and Irish fairy lore.
I found the author's use of parentheses and parenthetical clarifying statements a little perplexing and frequently unnecessary, as though Pellio dislikes commas and prefers to use parentheses for every subordinate clause. At times it bordered on irritating. Once I became accustomed to it, however, I could shrug it off as simply the author's style, and perhaps, in a way, it contributes to the atmosphere of the story.
It certainly wasn't enough to stop me re-reading the story. Twice.
