"WELL, and so they are "Queer Folk," and I don't care who says the contrary. There is a Warlock – a Witch – a society of Pig-faced Ladies – a quantity of Elves, and several other things and persons which any unprejudiced individual will at once allow to be queer enough to justify the name I have chosen. In fact, I think they are altogether as queer a collection of creatures as ever came together in a story-book ; and if anyone objects to the title, I can only say that if he will write seven queerer stories, and find a better name for the book which contains them, I shall be very much obliged to him."--Queer Folk (1874) is a book by E. H. Knatchbull-Hugessen
