A Small But Dedicated Growing Library Of Albionic Undercurrents & Folk Horror: Ether Signposts #11/52a - A Year In The Country
When I first started researching what would become A Year In The Country there were only two contemporary books that I knew of which explored the undercurrents and flipside of folk and related/interconnected culture. They were Rob Young's Electric Eden: Unearthing Britain's Visionary Music and Jeanette Leech's Seasons They Change: The Story of Acid and Psychedelic Folk, published in 2011 and 2010 respectively. So, alongside the two above books I would also probably include as a companion work to Seasons They Change: Witches Hats & Painted Chariots: The Incredible String Band and the 5,000 Layers of Psychedelic Folk Music by Jon 'Mojo' Mills and Andy Morten. More specifically along the lines of folk horror there have been two books published in the last couple of years: Folk Horror: Hours Dreadful and Things Strange by Adam Scovel and Folk Horror Revival: Field Studies which is an anthology collection of essays that explores various areas of folk horror related work by a number of different writers including Kim Newman, Robin Hardy, Thomas Ligotti, Philip Pullman, Gary Lachman, John Coulthart, Grey Malkin (The Hare And The Moon), Sharron Kraus, Andy Paciorek and Chris Lambert.
