Reviews

A masterful collection of spooky tales. Each one is truly original. The Winter Spirits is a real treat for the autumn and winter.
CARLY REAGON, author of THE TOLL HOUSE
This deliciously eerie follow-up to the bestselling ghost story collection The Haunting Season is the perfect bedfellow for these cold winter nights.
WOMAN & HOME
This is another dazzling collection which bridges the gap between tradition and new writing quite brilliantly. Each author's voice is eerily distinct in stories that range from playful melancholy to outright terror. It's a wonderful anthology: chilling, moving, tremendously satisfying, and a joy to read.
AMANDA MASON, author of THE WAYWARD GIRLS
There are ghosts, monsters and things that go bump in the night in this cracking collection of supernatural stories . . . creepy and atmospheric
DAILY MIRROR
I absolutely devoured The Winter Spirits - every story is a gem. This collection will form part of my Christmas reading tradition.
LAURA SHEPPERSON, author of THE HEROINES
Terrific - every bit as good as an MR James collection
ROSIE ANDREWS, author of THE LEVIATHAN
A must for fans of The Haunting Season. Prepare to be spooked.
SUNDAY EXPRESS
An eerily macabre, hauntingly propulsive collection of ghostly tales
