News week of 30 November 2016

Reading a ghost story on Christmas Eve was once as much a part of traditional Christmas celebrations as turkey, eggnog, and Santa Claus.


Halloween might seem like the scariest time of year – but Charles Dickens, M.R. James, Edith Wharton, Marjorie Brown and A.M. Burrage felt otherwise. They were among the many authors who set their most bone-chilling stories during the dark and shivering days of – yes, Christmas.

World famous cartoonist Seth has selected and illustrated these stories. They are beautiful little books just the right size for Christmas stockings and sure to be a hit on Christmas Day.
