Good things come to those who wait, the old saying goes. And I’ve definitely made you wait for this one – it’s almost a year overdue – but we finally made it: I’m happy to announce the eighth instalment of our anthology series covering hidden history, fringe science and general Forteana, Darklore Volume VIII, is now available for sale! You can pick up your copy from any number of online retailers through a simple search. But for simplicity’s sake, here’s the links to Amazon:
Here’s a quick listing of what you’ll find within:

Thanks for everyone’s support of the Darklore series – it helps to fund this website, and also provides financial support for contributors so that they can continue researching and writing about the stranger side of life.
I’m sure y’all will enjoy this latest instalment in the series. For those of you who remain unconvinced, I’ll publish some sample articles at the Darklore website (and here at TDG as well) in the coming week.
(Note: Leaving this up on the front page for a few days, regular daily updates can still be accessed via the ‘river of news‘ page view.)
