Coming in June 2017
The Commuter Myths is a book of short stories and imaginary folklore. Commuters have been travelling on the line between London and Brighton since it was founded in 1841. Strange stories pass among these travellers, and it is said that this narrow strip of track is one of the most haunted pieces of land in the world.
James Burt has collected the myths and legends of the commuters and presents some of them in this book. Learn the secrets of Tubomancy and the dangers of becoming lost on the line. Discover the traditions and superstitions that the commuters follow.
James has spoken about topics including Sussex Death Folklore and the history of Sussex hauntings. While researching folklore is fun, it’s even more exciting to invent your own. The Commuter Myths comes out in June 2017, but you can pre-order it now for £4.99 (+£1 postage and packing). There will also be an ebook version too, as well as a couple of special edition packages.
