Elf Magic Mail: Book 1, The Original Letters of
Elf Queens Daughters
Commentary by The Silver Elves
1974, a pair of sistersArwen and Elanorcalling themselves
the Elf Queens Daughters (EQD) emerged upon the Pagan/Wiccan
scene. They wrote fascinating esoteric letters of elven lore and philosophy
that, when they really got going, were sent out in groups of three
every week. Within months of their first publication, many other kindred
joined the sisters and established vortexes around the U.S. (and some
outside of the US) where those interested, who had heard the Call,
could write to awakened Elves.
these vortexes was the Elves of the Southern Woodlands in Carbondale,
Illinois, established by Zardoa who would, some years later after
the sisters ceased writing them, take on the Dharma of creating the
elf letters, first in Florida under the name the Sylvan Elves and
later in California as the Silver Elves. Silver Flame, his faithful
sister-lover companion, soon joined him and theyve been pursuing
the Dharma ever since.
book is the first volume containing the original letters of the EQD
a Frasority of Elves and were contributed by the founders of
the EQD, Arwen and Elanor, and the commentaries on each letter are
written by the Silver Elves. We know you will enjoy reading these
magical letters as much as we do and find the path of the Elven Way
beautiful and enchanting.
book is dedicated to Arwen and Elanor,
Founders of the Elf Queen's Daughters,
to all our sisters of the EQD.
and Elanor, founders of The Elf Queen's Daughters, have enjoyed a
life enriched by their continued efforts in communal, collaborative,
cooperative works of art forms including music, writing, and film-making.
These days, Arwen (Susie) and Elanor write, direct, and produce independent
full-length feature films as The La Honda Film company. La Honda Films
has produced two full-length films: "Buffalo Hearts" (now
available on both Netflix and Amazon) and their newest film release,
"California Tango". They also have a number of films in
the works including: "The Sorcerer", "Pacal Voltan",
and "The Aenid". For more information on their films, enjoy

thank you, dear H M J Van Geel for your review on Amazon:
This book is a document of wisdom and insight in all things
magical, mystic and Elvish. And it is a document of time, the 70-ties,
and now, these days, where ever more people relate to Otherkin. Thoughts
taken from long traditions of wisdom, but also of all day's experiences,
as well as from pop songs, put down in letters for everyone to enjoy
and learn from. The Elf Queens Daughters created them, and the Silver
Elves put them in their justified time frame and add helpful, loving
comments. A joy, a joy, a joy...

The Primordial Egg
ARE TENS OF THOUSANDS OF MATTERS, SISTERS
. to hold opinions
about, and ten thousand more to express our attitudes about, and more
and more to ponder about in the future as well as millions of lost
opinions and view-points to recollect and dwell upon relating to our
pasts. They weave about us, and we learn to call them ourselves. Astute
politicians and the genius-executives that manipulate most of what
we once held sacred wield mental power over the people of our disenchanted
America that dwarfs the physical power once held by Kings and emotional
power held by their courtesans.
It is foolish to believe that youve escaped enculturation. It
is even more foolish to seriously attempt to do any thing about it.
We are programmed sisters, and almost all of us can only re-program
ourselves with bizarre programming seemingly our own,
yet mostly borrowed from India or China or even Romantic-Western-America.
It appears to the elven sisters, that its only the seriousness
that really endangers both our security and our freedom. If we can
singularly and mutually face the utter ridiculousness
of our real predicament and almost eternal bondage to the illusions
so artfully created for endless distraction, we may begin the long
and perilous journey into and out-of fear.
And yet, sisters, we pass through normal and elven America and find
so very much opinion about everything imaginable. The warm smiles
are what counts, sisters; it is the elven smile that makes for a new
day, and the elven chatter as well as the elven letters we all have
grown to love are not a real part of our mutual liberation. Only a
real human smile has the magic and true enchantment necessary to attack
with love (in elven style) the almost ageless human preoccupation
with deception. Would that people only attempted to deceive folk other
We find sisters everywhere that would learn the magic. They find their
elven natures to be more than just surface qualities;
they feel theyve found something recognizable in their real
kinship with the elven sisterhood. We pray and call upon She Who Dreams
to guide them past all of this and into and out-of what men call real.
There is no substitute for self knowledge. So very few spend the time
to find out who they really are. The unseen realms of mind and reality
are so very devastating to those who know so little about themselves,
their motives, their sexual needs and desires, the nitty-gritty
stuff that wizzards [sic] expose to the light of day on only one or
two days in a single year. And Alchemy, and astrology, and all the
heavy stuff, what is it all about, beloved .. what is
it all about?
Let us firstly make arrangements for our mutual evolution and growth
from a disenchanted folk alienated primarily from ourselves .. into
a real people who not only know themselves but know themselves relative
to their real environment.
Its the Space that Counts"
of actually letter from which the above is transcribed, on page 227:
BY THE SILVER ELVES on page 230:
the sisters make very clear that our true elven magic is not ceremonial
magic or the waving of wands, nor even attempts to manipulate the
world but the magic of a simple smile, a bit of kindness in a world
that very much needs it. This goes along with Tolkiens idea,
as expressed in his article On Fairy-Stories found in Tree and Leaf,
that faerie magic is not the labored magic of worldly magicians. While
this magic may be less demonstrative and flashy than the magic of
movies and books, it is far more powerful really for all its subtlety
and far more enduring. It helped change our lives and endures still
in the hearts of these elves."
