Faerie Tales 4: A Murder of Souls (The Sluagh) – A Monster Guys Podcast Presentation
Show Notes & Summary:
The Monster Guys present: Faerie Tales – A Monster Guys Podcast Presentation!
Join us as we travel to the Old Country and far away lands in search of some of the world’s greatest legends and monsters. Journey with us to the land of Faeries! For each Faerie Tales Podcast, we will spin a classic or original tale from the land of the Fae Folk, and share in a brief conversation about the history, the lore, the mystery – and very often, the terror – of the featured faerie.
Flying zombies? Fairy darts? Rotting crops? The Wild Hunt? Fallen angels, or sinners that neither Heaven nor Hell wanted? Seeking the souls of the dying, or pursuing the living?
What does all this have to do with this week’s Faerie?
D.C. & C. Michael McGannon tune in to one of the more vicious creatures in the faerie world, the Sluagh. This “restless undead” monster is also one that doesn’t receive as much credit as perhaps it should, especially given the translation of their name.
The Sluagh have a rich and terrifying history. In an *original tale titled, “A Murder of Souls”, The Monster Guys paint a broad picture, followed by a brief discussion, about these lost souls.
Join in the discussion in this week’s Faerie Tale!
