In the winter of 2016, English Heritage sent some of the UK’s finest contemporary writers to stay at different historical sites across the UK. From Max Porter at Eltham Palace to Mark Haddon deep in York’s Cold War Bunker, their experiences informed their chilling creations. Eight authors, eight ghost stories, eight unsettling, supernatural creations set loose in time for Halloween. With a foreword by Andrew Martin and fascinating background detail on English Heritage sites and their supernatural legacies, this is a book to be savoured - and read aloud - as the winter nights draw in.

This book is also available in hardback here.
