Three Free Fortean Articles For Freaky Friends

Darklore 7 - Mushrooms in Wonderland

If you're looking for some Fortean reading this weekend, make sure you check out the three free sample articles from Darklore Volume 7* that I've added to the Darklore website. The first is "Mushrooms in Wonderland", in which Mike Jay asks whether Victorian fairy art and lore were inspired by experiences with mind-altering fungi. The second sample article is a fascinating exploration of the strange, Discordian-influenced history behind the work of the cult British band The KLF by J.M.R. Higgs. And lastly we have my own recounting of the turbulent and rather frightening seances held by the Icelandic medium Indridi Indridason in the early years of the 20th century. Close to 20,000 words of fun!'

If you like what you read, fill your boots by grabbing the complete book from Amazon and getting access to all 12 articles:

And if you're not caught up, there's another 18 free articles from previous releases to keep you busy too, all in printer-friendly page layouts.

That was fabulous. I love reading about mushrooms even though I have never ingested the fly agaric. I used to babysit some of my friends who would pick them off of cow pats after warm rains down in Houston, TX and eat them with wine. They laughed a whole heck of a lot.

I've brought up the possibility of Kindle editions before, and I know you've said it would be prohibitively expensive to make them, but is there any way you can make a standard DRM-free ebook version of the series? I want to buy them all, but I honestly just don't have the shelf space. Please see if you can make this happen!
