Fairy-Tale Files, published once weekly, feature three variations of a fairy tale chosen by one of Fairy Tale Review’s Assistant Editors.

In the debut episode of this 1905 comic strip by Winsor McCay, King Morpheus commands his minion to visit Little Nemo’s dreams.

Project Morpheus—an autonomous spacecraft developed by NASA—identifies debris-free sites for vertical takeoff and landing.

The extinct Majorcan giant dormouse carries the Latin name Hypnomys morphaeus due to its reputation for prolonged hibernation.
