This should have been a 4 star book for me I picked it up trying to get some fables and ideas to work into my novel writing And the collection of tales here is fantastic based all round the Isles where I live and have lived But often the tale is not told particularly well coming across bland even thought the subject matter is terrific So a great reference book for me with great research but alas let down as the storytelling is just okay But still worth it for the tales

G the way they recount the stories that are an integral part of the coastal heritage such as the tale of Drake’s Drum said to be heard when England was in peril and the mythical island of Hy Brazil which for centuries appeared on sea charts and maps to the west of Ireland The result is an endlessly fascinating often surprising journey through Britain's island history. A richly researched compendium of folklore and tall tales from around the coast of the British Isles this volume is guaranteed to stimulate the imagination of ignorant landlubbers such as myself who know but little of the lore of the sea Rather like the ‘Folklore Myths and Legends of Britain’ published over forty years ago the stories and anecdotes contained in this book are divided up by region and then presented alphabetically in line with location but unlike the earlier publication also encompass rich material from the island of Ireland Dotted throughout the book are a number of inserts dealing with non regionally specific lore of the sea such as that connected with figureheads soul birds and mermaids Although a certain proportion of this material was already known to me the greater part of it was not By dint of being the type of book that this is it is perhaps a book for dipping into than reading from cover to cover which is why I awarded it – perhaps unfairly – with four rather than five stars If you have any interest in the folklore of Britain and Ireland I would warmly recommend that you read this book but if you simply wish to dip into its pages and bring a smile to your lips I would suggest that you read ‘The king of Ulster and the sea monster’ which is ludicrously entertaining
