The Folk of the Air - Peter S. Beagle

Mythopoeic Fantasy Award 1987.

When Farrell returned to Avicenna after years away, he found his oldest friend Ben living with an unattractive older woman named Sia. Ben and Farrell's girlfriend, Julie, were also mixed up with the League for Archaic Pleasures – a group that playacted the events and manners of medieval chivalry, sometimes too seriously.

Nothing was quite as it seemed. Sia's ancient house developed rooms that impossibly appeared and disappeared. Apparently helpless, Sia still had enormous powers that no human could defy when she chose to exert her will. And some members of the League were not playacting – they were the medieval characters they portrayed.
