From the vanishing hitchhiker to the hook-handed killer, from the vaginal serpent to Elvis Alive!, and from the "McWorm" burger to the mouse in the cola can, 23 essays examine this genre, and its effect on society. Explores interpretation, reactions, folklore and film, the social construction of urban legends, new legends, folklore in the black community, and legend, truth, and news. Fascinating reading.
