“But something odd does happen here at Christmas time. When I first heard the story, I thought it was an old wives’ tale, but—well, these old houses—you hear strange things—” He lifted his shoulders and stared into the fire…

From the troves of the British Library collections comes a new volume for Christmas nights—when the boundary between the mundane and the unearthly is ever so thin—ushering in a new throng of revenants, demons, spectres and shades drawn to the glow of the hearth.

Included within are eighteen classic stories ranging from 1864 to 1974, with vintage Victorian chillers nestled alongside unsettling modern pieces from L. P. Hartley and Mildred Clingerman; lost tales from rare anthologies and periodicals; weird episodes from unexpected authors such as Winston Graham and D. H. Lawrence; stories simmering with a twisted humour from Elizabeth Bowen and Celia Fremlin and many more haunting seasonal treats.
