Our spooktacular Halloween issue is out! We talk about plague in Venice, London, and in medieval music. We look at the mythical Wild Hunt, Viking revenants back from the dead, fantastical werewolves, witches, and vampires, and even divine horses. We also look at Gothic books inspired by the Middle Ages.
