Christmas on the Black Meadow

A perfect Christmas gift to satisfy all of your Folk Horror Christmas cravings…

Do you see shadows in the mist? Are you stalked by meadow hags? Do you long to play with black stars? Do you crave a darker yule? Then this book could be for you!

It is Christmas on the North York Moors.

The snow sits upon the heather and bramble. The fences around RAF Fylingdales are silent and still. A dense mist grows in the distance. If you listen closely you can hear strange Yuletide chants, the hum of a land sphere and the cackle of a meadow hag.

This collection of Christmas tales from the Black Meadow contains three new Yuletide stories. Experience a beautiful inversion of The Nativity in A Black Meadow Christmas, warm your toes in a tale of matriarchal terror in The Meadow Tree and marvel at the delightful wonders of The Black Star. You will also find details of ideal gifts you could give and games that you can play when visiting the Black Meadow.

With beautiful illustrations by Andy Paciorek and Nigel Wilson, this is a festive treat that will bring joy and fear in equal measure to your Christmas celebrations.

All profits from the sale of this book go to Worldwide Cancer Research.

The first year’s Folk Horror Revival donations to the Wildlife Trust

100% of the profits from the sale of Folk Horror Revival/ Wyrd Harvest Press books are donated to the Wildlife Trust special appeals. The money is allocated based on votes cast by members of the FHR Facebook group, with the top two projects each time receiving the money raised split equally between them. There have been four donations to date, all made on the quarter year days of the equinoxes or solstices.

So far, in the first year, the members of FHR have raised the fantastic amount of £6121.28 for the Wildlife Trusts, all from the sale of the three books published so far. There are many more titles planned for the future, and all profits from their sale will continue to be donated to Wildlife Trust special appeals.

Further details of all the projects supported so far can be found at the links below.

The first donation of the sales profits was made on the Winter Solstice of 2015, with a total donation of £1803.38,with each charity receiving £901.69, to the Cheshire Wildlife Trust – Barn Owl project (OvO) and the Warwickshire Wildlife Trust – Hedgehog project.

On the 2016 Spring Equinox the two appeals that received money both happened to be run by the Northumberland Wildlife Trust – the Living Seas project, to improve the quality of the marine environment in the North Sea, and safeguarding the counties Red Squirrels. The amount donated was £771.92 each (£1543.84 in total).

The Summer 2016 Solstice donation was made to a single project run by the Hampshire & Isle of Wight Wildlife Trust – Protect the Pollinators appeal to help bees, which received a donation of £687.98.

The most recent donation, of £1046.31 made on the Autumn 2016 Equinox, with £629.10 each to Staffordshire’s Badger Vaccination programme (to prevent culling them for TB control), and Avon Wildlife Trust’s Threatened Butterflies habitat appeal.
