The selections in this book come from German and English sources. There is a mass of East Baltic folk-lore from which to choose which gives but a feeble idea of the extent of Baltic folk-lore. In this volume you will find tales of Enchantments, Wizards, Witches, Magic Spells, Nixy Queens, Giants, Fairy White Reindeer, and glittering Treasures from the Baltic Lands -- Lapland, Finland, Estonia, Latvia, and Lithuania. Their setting is the Long Winter Night with its brilliant play of Northern Lights over the snow-covered tundra; or the brief Arctic summer--its sun burning night and day--with its birds, flowers, insect-clouds, singing waters, and almost tropic heat; or the golden sunshine of the southern amber coast. But it is the Northern Lights themselves, flashing and flaming through the dark heavens, that cast their mystic weirdness over many of these tales moulded by the peculiar imagination of the Asiatic and European East Baltic folks. The farther our stories draw south from Lapland, the lower sink the Northern Lights and their influence on folk-tales, till at last they merge with the warmer lights of Lithuania - the amber-land. Wizards and wizardry abound in Lappish, Finnish, and Estonian tales, Witches appear more often in Latvian and Lithuanian ones. And in all these countries except Lapland, many European folk-tale themes, which we know in the Grimm collection, are found in new forms. 33% of the net profit from this book will be donated to charities.

An official guide to the most iconic legends and legendary creatures from the world of Magic: The Gathering The world of Magic: The Gathering is home to many fantastical characters and creatures, but perhaps none so intriguing as its legendary creature cards, which include dragons, demons, angels, goblins, vampires, merfolk, wizards, and more. These legendary cards harken back to Magic’s early history, having been introduced in one of the first sets of Magic cards (1994’s Legends) and in yearly expansions all the way through spring 2020’s most recent set. Magic: The Gathering: Legends showcases high-quality reproductions of the most iconic card art from across the game's history—in many instances for the first time outside of the card frame—along with accompanying creature and character histories written by Jay Annelli. This collection also offers exclusive insight into the art and mythology behind some of Magic: The Gathering’s most powerful, popular, and enduring legends and legendary creatures.

Discover weird and amazing tales about pirates, ghosts and witches in old New England while learning early American history! The rich and wonderful history of early New England isn’t just about pilgrims, the founding of the nation, and the American Revolution. It also includes incredible tales of shipwrecks and pirates, witches and Puritans, old mansions and terrifying ghosts, and dense forests and wind-swept beaches populated by strange and mysterious creatures. This classic collection of the legends and folklore of New England will not only take you back to colonial days, where you will rediscover Plymouth Rock, the courtship of Priscilla by Myles Standish, and Paul Revere’s ride, but will introduce you to exciting and bizarre events long obscured by the mists of time. Meet Molly Pitcher, the fortune-telling hag of Lynn, said to be descended from wizards; Agnes, maid of Marbleton’s Fountainhead Inn and a real-life Cinderella; Captain Teach, better known as the notorious pirate Blackbeard; and the wealthy widow Ann Hibbins, accused of being a witch and hanged from a tree in Boston. If these amazing tales of real-life historical figures aren’t exciting enough, weird old New England was also a paranormal wonderland. Discover the massive sea serpent of Gloucester Bay; the testimony of the man who was chased by the double-headed snake of Newbury; the skeleton in armor pulled from the Fall River said to date to 1000 A.D.; and the terrifying Marblehead legend of the shrieking woman. A classic of its kind, authored by a Civil War veteran who was closer in time to these stories than anyone living today can ever imagine, and illustrated with over 100 evocative period engravings, New England Legends & Folk Lore is a treasury of historical fact and literary flight of fancy.
