We like to think that we live in an age of reason and rationality, that uncertainty and the unknown have largely been eliminated by technology and science. But it seems that we have nagging doubts. Continually, we tell each other of tales about ankle slashers and hairy-armed wome...n in the shopping mall. We hear about phantom hitchikers and headless bikers on the highways. Dreadful things are reportedly done to small pets at home. Tummies explode at work, garden gnomes take international holidays, and what certain celebrities do with gerbils is nobody's business. Given their macabre subjects, most of us hope that they are just myths, but whether we beileve them or not, these stories are constantly spread around the world by people who apparently believe them to be true. In this revised edition, author Graham Seal tracks down over 100 contemporary Australian legends guaranteed to fascinate readers with their gruesomeness and their absurdity.
