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 and other creatures of lore! For each Faerie Tales Podcast, we will spin a classic or original tale, and share in a brief conversation about the history, the lore, the mystery – and very often, the terror.

For this episode of our Faerie Tales Podcast, we are privileged to share a story titled “The Moor”, written by Icy Sedgwick, a friend we’ve met through the vibrant online community known as Folklore Thursday (#folklorethursday & @FolkloreThurs every Thursday on Twitter) that we are a part of.

This spooky ghost story is a tale that combines the lore of witches, trees, and the consequences of our decisions with regards to nature.

About Icy Sedgwick

I’m a creative storyteller, based in Newcastle upon Tyne. I blog about weird myths and folklore, and all things curious or bizarre. The odder the better!

But I primarily write fiction. I’ve written stories for as long as I can remember, and learned to type on my mum’s old manual typewriter…yet I still can’t master typing on a tablet. Go figure!

I’ve been writing for around 18 years now, and I’ve had several stories included in a range of anthologies, including Suspended in Dusk, European MonstersShort Stack, Masks and Bloody Parchment: The Root Cellar & Other Stories. Huzzah!

My main genres are dark fantasy, Gothic horror, and Westerns.
