A Ghost & Scholars Book of Folk Horror
Folk Horror is a very English strand of storytelling and heavily feature the English landscape. But it also embraces many differing aspects of this from nature, myths, ghosts and rituals amongst others. A quick scroll through on the Folk Horror facebook page will give you an idea of the breadth of what it can encompass and I have been introduced to several rituals, musicians and image-makers and books through it.
