Edited by Jeff Provine and Joe Sullivan
A Compendium of Creeps is a book for fans of folk horror and world folklore. Provine and Sullivan bring together nonfiction accounts of the creepiest locations around the world, contemporary essays on folklore, and original horror fiction inspired by urban legends and creepypasta.
Have you heard about the Man-Eating Tree of Nubia?
I’m sure you’ll want to visit the Dream Beach in Sao Paolo? Or will it be a crowded nightmare?
Is there something more sinister in the Masoala Forest of Madagascar than cute lemurs and fossas?
Even the most well-read of legend trippers will find new locales to investigate, creepy lakes of the dead, unheard of cryptids that will come as a most pleasant surprise.
And once you’ve perused our extensive list of supernatural sites, there are essays on the variety of Romanian creatures from Transylvanian writer Alex Woodroe, the true mystery of New Orleans’ own Voodoo legend Marie Laveau as told by a local expert, an exploration of Black American folklore told through the lens of the 1995 movie Tales from the Hood by horror writer R.J. Joseph.
Includes Lindy's award-winning essay "The Unapology of Baba Yaga"
