Happy Halloween

A spectral tale for Halloween, drawing on Irish folklore and revising one of Hans Christian Anderson's most nauseatingly twee stories. If I can string three brain cells together, I might record another tale on the day itself.

  1. Ooh most compelling and mysterious :) I think I prefer the old woman with her disintegrating jaw... has left me wondering and uncertain about whether the coachman is a relative or a psychopomp taking her to the otherside... I'm not familiar with the Irish folklore drawn on and haven't read the original Little Match Girl for years, will have to dig it out!

  2. The coachman is more a psychopomp, the Death Coach is a feature of Irish folklore. there are much more malevolent manifestations of it than feature in this tale though!
