Item Description

The definitive word on the subject from the dean of urban legend studies.

We all know those stories that are too bizarre to be true―roasted babies, vanishing hitchhikers, scuba divers in trees―but have you heard about the ice man or the bullet baby? This comprehensive and compellingly readable reference work will answer all your urban legend questions, offering alphabetical entries on every aspect of the subject, including descriptions of hundreds of individual legends and their variations, legend themes, and scholarly approaches to the genre. Other entries discuss the relationship of urban legends to literature, film, comic books, music, and many other areas of popular culture. A Booklist Editors' Choice 2001 Reference Book. "Unlike most encyclopedias, this one may be read cover to cover."―Choice "Compiled by the foremost authority on this form of contemporary folklore....Superb."―Library Journal 60 black and white illustrations
