I thought we could do with a thread which mentions, and celebrates, hard copy newsletters or magazines - apart from Fortean Times, of course -which are concerned with the unexplained and paranormal and so forth.

Bonus points if they are from non-English speaking countries or regional. Bigger bonus points if they are still being published.

So here is a review of Russia's `Anomalous News` - Anomalny Novosti which continues to come out twice a month:

The Folklore Society publishes a quarterly newsletter

https://folklore-society.com/

Some of the names will be familiar as they have also written for, or in one case founded, FT.

The latest issue which dropped though my letter box a couple of days ago is now in A5 format.

If a group or organisation changes their publication to online only I am usually inclined to cease membership I’m afraid so I welcome this thread about hard copy newsletters.

I'm a fan of Time and Mind; one of the editors is Paul Deveraux. More a journal than a magazine or newsletter I think? I'm not sure how much of the site is visible without an academic licence?

The Ghastling. Fiction rather than analysis. Which is valuable if, like me, one of your interests is seeing what people come up with creatively, using fortean themes as a seed crystal.

Got the first two of these, didn't realise there had been a third and fourth one!
snap! I've just caught up and have now subscribed to the Tiny Newsletter to be notified properly in the future.

Fate has more tarot and psychics. Plus Fate kinda gets the people in in an easy way into the subject by putting it in a girly mag then introduce them to the more serious Spirit and Destiny.
