About

I’ve used North American folklore for the title of this anthology, as I grew up with 20th century American legends: Bloody Mary appearing in the mirror when you’ve said her name enough times, the escaped killer who leaves his hook hanging on the car door of a ‘courting couple’ – but we want to read your legends too. The lore your work is based around can be as well known or obscure as you like, urban, rural or suburban, and from any country in the world, but we’d give the 20th and 21st centuries as a rough guide to what ‘modern’ in origin means – nothing much older than 1900.
