Ealdwood is a fantasy novella by C. J. Cherryh. It is one of Cherryh's Ealdwood Stories and was first published in 1981 by Donald M. Grant in a limited edition of 1,050 copies. The edition was illustrated by the author's brother, David A. Cherry. The novella draws on Celtic mythology and is about Ealdwood, a forest at the edge of Faery, and Arafel, a Daoine Sidhe.
Ealdwood and the author's 1979 short story, "The Dreamstone" (published in Amazons!, edited by Jessica Amanda Salmonson) were combined and revised by Cherryh and published as a novel, The Dreamstone in 1983. Cherryh published a sequel to The Dreamstone later in 1983, The Tree of Swords and Jewels.
