Reviews

JOANNE BURN, author of THE HEMLOCK CURE
An eerily macabre, hauntingly propulsive collection of ghostly tales
LAURA SHEPPERSON, author of THE HEROINES
I absolutely devoured The Winter Spirits - every story is a gem. This collection will form part of my Christmas reading tradition.
ROSIE ANDREWS, author of THE LEVIATHAN
Terrific - every bit as good as an MR James collection
WOMAN & HOME
This deliciously eerie follow-up to the bestselling ghost story collection The Haunting Season is the perfect bedfellow for these cold winter nights.
DAILY MIRROR
There are ghosts, monsters and things that go bump in the night in this cracking collection of supernatural stories . . . creepy and atmospheric
SUNDAY EXPRESS
A must for fans of The Haunting Season. Prepare to be spooked.
CARLY REAGON, author of THE TOLL HOUSE
A masterful collection of spooky tales. Each one is truly original. The Winter Spirits is a real treat for the autumn and winter.
AMANDA MASON, author of THE WAYWARD GIRLS
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.
