Ghost Stories For Christmas, Volume One

Embrace the spirits of Christmases past with this anthology of thirty seasonal tales from the golden age of the Christmas ghost story. Spanning the years 1820-1929, many of the thirty stories contained in this anthology were originally published in the Christmas editions of Victorian and Edwardian magazines and newspapers. Although some were later revised or retitled by their authors for publication in book form, Andi Brooks has gone back to those original versions to present the stories as they first appeared. In this first volume of an annual series, you will find stories which may amuse you and stories which may move you, but mostly you will find stories which still retain the power to send a chill of festive fear coursing through your veins. So turn the lights down low and snuggle up in your favourite corner to read these ghostly stories of Christmas long ago, but don’t forget to keep one eye on the shadows closing in around you!
