Hellebore - Highly Recommended

I've only just started reading this (relatively) new magazine and I'm already rather pleased that I took a friend's advice and bought it. Or rather, two copies of it.
HELLEBORE is a collection of writings and essays devoted to British folk horror and the themes that inspire it: folklore, myth, history, archaeology, psychogeography, witches, and the occult.
If none of those things float your boat, reading a blog entitled Supernatural Tales is a rather odd thing for you to be doing. There are two issues so far. They are both spiffing.


The Sacrifice Issue contains, among other things, stone circles, crop sacrifices, folk magic, bog bodies, Medieval dooms, lost hearts, re-enchantment, and Ronald Hutton on folk horror.



 
The Wild Gods Issue contains, among other things, secret cults, ancient rituals, demonic processions, nocturnal bacchanals, dark faeries, and Cornish zombies. 
Featuring Alan Moore on folk horror, the visionary experience, and the wild gods of England.
