Title: Monkey King, Faerie Queen

Author: Zen Cho

Published in: Kaleidotrope, Spring 2015

Description, by Lois Tilton [Locus]: "Monkey, the Chinese trickster god, finds himself in a foreign realm. Cultural dissonance ensues."

In foreign countries people don’t do things the way we do them. Instead of calling nice nice and not nice not nice, they like to say that what is bad is good and what is good is bad. So this benighted ragtag group of unreverenced lesser godlings were known as the Fair Folk, despite their pinched unpleasant faces. They were the Good Neighbors, even though they soured their human neighbors’ milk and stole the occasional baby. They were called the People of Peace, even though their favorite past-time was declaring war and perpetrating grotesque crimes upon each other.
