Scary Reality: Fear in Narrative Cultures: 

The upcoming issue of Journal of Folklore and Popular Culture is devoted to critical presentation, interpretation, and case studies of narratives (digital or otherwise) which reflect, tame or fuel societal fears. We are particularly interested in analyzing the diversity, plurality, and abundance of genres and types of narratives concerning fear. The fear – or fears – in question can be related to threatening events of past or present – such as wartime, political and economic crises, epidemics, natural catastrophes, the climate crisis, global migration – as well as abstract fears – e. g. those concerning death and dying, end times, supernatural and extraterrestrial entities, and paranormal phenomena.
