The Wild Hunt, a name that captures the spirit of this magazine in so many facets. It comes directly from the old Germanic folklore stories speaking of a "spectral, nocturnal horde" and the huntsmen could have been supernatural beings, like fairies or the dead.
In regards to this magazine, The Wild Hunt is searching for stories, articles, and artwork that delve into the fantastic, dig up monsters and creatures, or simply have an eerie, uncanny quality. In short, we are the wild hunt. It was difficult, at first, to come to a name that would suitably and imaginatively capture the vast types of content we are looking for.
The folkloric wild hunt came in the middle of winter, when silence spread across the land; it shook up the villagers and brought gods, the dead, and other fantastical creatures. This magazine hopes to do the same.
