Firstly, just a quick heads-up that the Grail is understaffed for the next few days, so updates to the site may be a little sporadic until the weekend. If that leaves you a bit short on reading material, don’t fret: I’ve made three full sample articles from the newly released Volume 8 of our anthology series Darkloreavailable to download (as PDFs) from the Darklore website, absolutely free. Those three join 21 other sample articles available – so if you’re new to the Darklore series, you’ve got plenty of fascinating material to read through!
The three sample articles are:
Martin Shough’s fantastic article on the ball lightning enigma, with a discussion of the way science has approached the mystery, as compared to the UFO phenomenon
Cat Vincent’s intelligent examination of the rise of pop culture-based, hyper-real religions.
My piece on the phenomenon of the ‘dying light’ witnessed by some people at the time of a loved one’s passing.
Of course, if the articles whet your appetite, it helps us out a whole lot more if you purchase a copy of Darklore, allowing us to continue making new volumes. It’s available from any number of online book retailers, but for simplicity’s sake, here’s the links to Amazon:
