[Christine’s Halloween Monster and Faery List]

Hob-Goblins 3

Lobs (Puddle) Lubberkin, Jan Lubber Fiend, Lurdane, Lob-Lie-By-The-Fire
Lobs are larger than ordinary hob-goblins. (About a foot taller). In the Red Axe by S.R. Crockett of 1900, Jan Lubber Fiend is seen shelling peas in the yard cross-legged for the young mistress. He is described as growing as much as a foot at night. King Lobais is a Fomorian giant who was called to Balor’s Council at the Cath Mag Tuireadh na b-Fomorach: Second Grain Harvest Plain of Frost.
