The German term "Nebelhexe" (Mist Witch) is no longer an unknown word, you can find it in many places: In ghost stories, in books for children and grown-ups, it is used in comics and plays, as well as in poetry, as picture descriptions, and in fantasy- and role-playing games. A musician used it as her artist name, and as a pseudonym it is also used more and more often on the Internet. It is even used in recipes, as a type of beer, and as the name of a well-known tourist destination.
The underlying customs and folk knowledge, including many folk tales from past centuries about the fog creatures from mainly the German-Dutch border area is presented here. In the book the dialect term "Witte Wieven" in this or similar spellings is often used for these supernatural mist women, who often have their dwellings in small hills or waters. By means of background information, collected customs and folk knowledge, more than 80 folk tales, some fictional but exciting stories and many decorative illustrations in color these fog creatures are presented here, but in a chapter of its own it also gives due attention to similar beings from other parts of the world.
Gunivortus Goos

Gunivortus Goos

Gunivortus Goos previously published quite a few books and articles under his meanwhile given-up pseudonym GardenStone, but some years ago he started publishing under his legal name. Born in the city of Groningen, he is a Dutch, who some decades ago left his hometown and country and moved to Germany, where he, after several stations, now lives in a small town in the beautiful Taunus Hills in the German state of Hesse. Guus' (that's how his friends call him) 'addiction' is the research of specific historical topics of his personal interest, within which he is always eagerly looking for primary sources and related views and experiences of scholarly or practicing people, which he also uses to develop his own opinions.
In his publications his concern is not to only reproduce current views and his own ones, but also to stimulate the reader to form his or her own opinion. For the same reason, where possible, he also includes controversial representations.
