Hellebore No. 1 | The Sacrifice Issue

Human sacrifice is perhaps the most recurring trope in folk horror, whether it’s practiced by rural communities, as seen in The Wicker Man, or part of a Dark Arts ritual, such as that of The Blood on Satan’s Claw. We’re exploring its role in some of our favorite works of fiction, its associations with megaliths and ancient pagan cults in popular culture, its power in magical thinking, and some possible archaeological evidence for it.

Delve into a world of witchcraft, megalithic monuments, and pagan survivals in hidden rural areas.

Featuring words by Ronald Hutton, Katy Soar, Verity Holloway, David Southwell (Hookland), Dee Dee Chainey, Mercedes Miller, John Reppion, and Maria J. Pérez Cuervo. Artwork by Paul Watson and Eli John. Edited by Maria J. Pérez Cuervo.
68 pages.
