Weird Walk, a brand new fanzine with a very old school sensibility but produced with all the magic of the digital age. It's a proper old fashioned print publication filled with articles of a highly individual and idiosyncratic nature, and takes a stroll through folklore, geography and history in search of the intriguing and the unusual.
Issue 5: The nights are drawing in and stories are told around the fire… At this time of year, as thoughts turn to winter, stories would have been especially important to our ancestors. It is in sympathy with this telling of tales that we offer you issue five of our irregular periodical. We see the shadowy reverse of the British countryside revealed for younger readers in our exploration of folk horror in children’s literature, while Stewart Lee digs into the travels and tales of the mysterious writer Blanche E. Ward. Elsewhere, ritual animal disguise, water worship and the gothic tones of the pipe organ spin their own cultural narratives.
