Praise for the Lore podcast
“Truth can often be much scarier than fiction—something [Aaron] Mahnke proves as he dives deep into the world of folklore and the darker side of history in a quest to root out the fragment of truth at the bottom of our fears.”—Entertainment Weekly
“Unlike so much horror that needs over-the-top viscera to scare you, this podcast leans on history—folklore, myth, the stuff people once thought was true—to tell its tales.”—The Atlantic
“Narrated by Mahnke in a style that evokes spooky campfire stories, Lore is a history lesson like no other.”—Esquire
About the Author
Aaron Mahnke is the writer, host, and producer of Lore, as well as the author of a number of supernatural thrillers. He has a deep love of the mysterious and frightening that began with Unsolved Mysteries and The X-Files—a love that continues to this day. Basically, he’s a nerd for anything inexplicable or supernatural. Mahnke lives with his family in the historic North Shore area of Boston, the very heart of Lovecraft Country and the Salem witch trials.

Oh well - at least I could enjoy all the gorgeous illustrations, right? Wrong. While the pictures are beautiful and well done they are few and far between. The hype around this book (from Aaron himself) made it sound like there would be drawings abound!
I love Aaron’s work, his original novels, and the podcast. I want to support him by buying his work because of the joy his podcasts bring. That said - I feel like I was tricked and fooled. I will not be preordering his items in the future. I will be sure to read the reviews and make sure I’m not fooled again.
If you’re familiar with the podcasts - save your money. It’s nothing you haven’t heard before.
Love the podcast. Wish the book had new stuff in it.
