Dark Cheer: Cryptids Emerging (Volume Blue)
1 Dec. 2021
Paperback / softback
Here are stories for lovers of chupacabras and hulders, griffins and gargoyles. Here be darkly cheery tales of ancient creatures lurking beneath still waters, in the attic, or in those shadows right by the bed.
Herein an autistic hiker meets a cryptid who wants her camera; a Japanese tanuki seeks his fox daughter; and two women fall in love, never mind one's a swamp monster. Here be stories of changelings, nix, and demons adopted, of hungry kraken and cryptids we'd see if only, if only, if only we looked into treetops, behind doors, or in our own back gardens.
Here there be monsters. Thank all the gods. With 43 spine-tingly stories by writers from Australia, Canada, England, India, Japan, Ireland, Netherlands, Nigeria, Norway, Wales and Scotland, Dark Cheer Cryptids Emerging will be raising those goosebumps for many nights to come.
