Celtic Weird: Tales of Wicked Folklore and Dark Mythology (Ed. Johnny Mains) (HC) (British Library)

From the shorelines, hills and crags of ancient lands, tales of twisted creatures, sins against nature and pagan revenants have been passed down from generation to generation. In the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, folklore from Wales, Scotland, Ireland, Cornwall, Brittany and the Isle of Man inspired a new strain of strange short stories, running alongside the Celtic Revival movement of art, craft and poetry. In this new volume, Johnny Mains dives into the archives of the forgotten to unearth an array of uneasy stories with Celtic folklore at their heart - tales which resonate with our fascination for the traditions and fears of the people that came before.
