Folklore Mondays: Slender Edition

Remember ages ago when I babbled about a Slender Man article I wanted to write? You probably thought I forgot about it, what with all the other important stuff I’ve been doing.

Well, I didn’t forget, these things just take a long time. It’s finally done, so for this week’s Folklore Mondays post, I give you my own take on a pretty interesting folkloric phenomenon. It was published in the Semiotic Review, an open-access journal that deals with a lot of topics readers of this blog might find interesting. If you’re interested, you can read the article in its entirety here.
