Folklore and Heritage contains translations and retellings of myths, legends and folk tales (including some modern urban legends) from different cultures. However, there may be a slight bias towards the Celtic and Germanic heritage. Both well-known, definitive versions and original retellings will be presented
Selected tales, episodes, or chapters will be free to download as pdf documents, and the complete works will be available for purchase a reasonable time after the initial publication. In addition to the pdf copies of the tales themselves, these pages will also include synopses, and author information.
