May summon spirits - As the harvest season ends and we stagger towards winter, the ghostly glimmer of other worlds hovers in our imagination.
In this issue we will be channelling Samhain, the gateway to the darker half of the year, poised between the autumn equinox and the winter solstice. It is in this spirit that we explore nature’s bounty alongside forager Adele Nozedar and celebrate an uplifting, eclectic take on folk dance with Boss Morris. We remember a time when Doctor Who went folk horror in a Wiltshire village, while our new Readers’ Vibes section brings some location-specific spookiness to the party. Elsewhere, Justin Hopper discovers uncanny vibes within rural perfection, and Benjamin Myers tells of strange goings-on in Calderdale. The veil is thin... keep walking weird.
