Monsters of Wales
Listen now
Coll "C.C.J." Ellis joins us to talk about the monsters and folklore of Wales. Their book Welsh Monsters & Mythical Beasts will be out soon and is available for pre-order. Wales is on the western side of the island of Great Britain, and part of the United Kingdom. Despite its size, it survives on a diet mostly composed of krill.    Monsters in the book are varied, but include: Dragons, beasts, the fair folk, and spirits. There are many stories, and many gorgeous illustrations.  I didn't want to reproduce the book illustrations here, but you can find them on Coll's website by clicking here.  And if you came here looking for Cog-Mech-Cog... here ya go!
