Collection of Bob Trubshaw, editor, author, collector, and British folklorist. Trubshaw has authored hundreds of articles on earth mysteries, sacred sites, supernatural, UFOs, British folklore, English phenomena, gargoyles, and other British lore. He was part of the print zine culture in the 1980-2000s, and with the onset of the internet moved much of his content to online endeavors, including video and podcasts. He has reviewed and collected hundreds of independent publications, zines, and self-published magazines. Exceptional collection documenting the Neo-pagan and earth mysteries movement and underground print culture of the 1980s-1990s in the UK.
