26 The Changing Mask of Krampus (cover story)
Mixing mediæval superstition with 19th century Catholicism, the devilish figure of Krampus has undergone a surprising revival in recent years. Al Ridenour reconnects with the dark side of Christmas, tracing Krampus's roots in Austro-German folklore and exploring the figure's growing popularity in the 21st century.

34 Out of the Shadows
In an extract from a new book celebrating the history of Boscastle's Museum of Witchcraft and Magic, Professor Ronald Hutton introduces the photographs of Sara Hannant, which aim to bring a range of enigmatic objects from the museum's unique collection to life.

40 The Face at the Window
One of the most fortean of lightning phenomena is the "lightning daguerreotype," where a face or figure, often recognised as a particular deceased person, is mysteriously etched upon a windowpane. Chris Woodyard traces some of the fenestral flaps of the 19th and early 20th centuries.
