Product Description

The first in an annual series of seasonal anthologies edited by Simon Marshall-Jones, this is available in both limited hardback and paperback now.

We are also pleased to report that sales of the book are very steady, and has generated quite a bit of interest and buzz across the electronic universe. Copies are still available, but stocks are dwindling fast, so please get your orders in now as it’s sure to sell out, and we think it would be an absolute shame if you missed out on it. The limited, numbered hardback edition is available on pre-order now, wrapped in that gorgeous cover shown above, with gold foil stamped titles on front and spine. It also features an introduction by Johnny Mains, and there will also be red endpapers (suitably festive) and a silk ribbon bookmarker to set things off nicely.  Edition size: 100 numbered copies only – so get ordering now!

    There’s some original, chilling tales in here that will leave you thinking about them long after you’ve finished reading – great for any time of year, not just Christmas. I particularly remember loving a story about snow. I won’t spoil it, but it’s stayed with me since I read the book two years ago.

    As for the book itself – I bought the hardback – it lives up to Spectral’s reputation for quality. The book is well-presented, the pages are thick and pristine, and my copy still looks good after two years. And what a great cover!
