‘And so the Shortest Day came and the year died
And everywhere down the centuries of the snow-white world
Came people singing, dancing,
To drive the dark away.’
Strange things happen on the dark wintry nights of December. Welcome to a new collection of terrifying Christmas tales, and prepare to plunge into the unforgiving snow outside. In this new anthology we go beyond the cosiness of the hearth and embark on journeys to the pine forests of Canada and the frozen peaks of the Alps and the Himalayas to experience a fresh selection of ghostly tales, perfect for the yuletide season.
Delve within for a unique selection ranging from the macabre folklore of Christmas in Finland to tales of mountain-climbers beset by malignant forces and ice skaters skirting the line between the mortal and spiritual realms. Wrap up warm, and prepare for the longest nights of all.
