The fabulous MOOF magazine issue 8, Summer 2020 arrived over the weekend. The magazine is packed with psychedelia and strangeness. Contents include interviews with Maxine Sanders, Zandra Rhodes and the latest incarnation of Gong, plus fab articles on John Michell and the Earth Mysteries movement, new music reviews and a recommended list of British counterculture literature. Also included is my own homage to the folklore and psychogeography of the Uffington white horse and the surrounding vale, with a wonderful accompanying illustration of the White Horse by Paul Atlas-Saunders.

I recently had the pleasure of visiting Kresen Kernow, the brand new Cornish archive centre in Redruth, where I donated a copy of my Cornish folklore title, From Granite to Sea, which explores the folklore and traditions of Bodmin Moor and East Cornwall. It will now proudly sit amongst their other Cornish folklore titles which came before to inspire me.
On Sunday 26th May, I will be presenting material from my recent book From Granite to Sea as part of the Pathways to the Past 2019 event. £5 entry, (CASPN members free). 8pm in the Mayor's Parlour, Old Town Hall, St Just, Penzance, Cornwall. I will have signed copies of the book for sale.
