In November 2015 we released the book Folk Horror Revival: Field Studies – a collection of essays and interviews by a wealth of talents with the mission of donating 100% of all book sales profits to different Wildlife Trusts conservation, countryside and community projects.
We gave members of the Folk Horror Revival facebook group the chance to vote on which projects they would like to help first.
The 2 Wildlife Trust Projects to equally split the donation of £1803.38 (receiving £901.69 each) are – Cheshire Wildlife Trust – Barn Owl project and Warwickshire Wildlife Trust – Hedgehog project.More info can be found here.

Further sales profits from the book and future FHR titles will be donated to other voted for Wildlife Trust environmental, community and countryside projects. The book is still available from here.
The next donation handover will be Summer Solstice 2016.
Thank you very much to everyone who contributed to and / or bought the book.
Stay tuned to this blog for forthcoming news of new Folk Horror Revival books.
