Waterstones Says

A deliciously wintry collection of ghostly and gothic tales, The Haunting Season boasts spine-chilling stories from eight bestselling authors including Bridget Collins, Kiran Millwood Hargrave and Elizabeth Macneal.

Winter, with its unsettling blend of the cosy and the sinister, has long been a popular time for gathering by the bright flame of a candle, or the warm crackling of a fire, and swapping stories of ghosts and strange happenings.

Now eight bestselling, award-winning authors - master storytellers of the sinister and the macabre - bring this time-honoured tradition to vivid life in a spellbinding collection of new and original haunted tales.

From a bustling Covent Garden Christmas market to the frosty moors of Yorkshire, from a country estate with a dreadful secret, to a London mansion where a beautiful girl lies frozen in death, these are stories to make your hair stand on end, send shivers down your spine and to serve as your indispensable companion to the long nights of winter.

So curl up, light a candle, and fall under the spell of The Haunting Season...

MEDIA REVIEWS

The chilling tales of The Haunting Season will make you feel oddly cosy, in the way that only the best ghost stories can. Exquisitely crafted from some of the finest British writers, I enjoyed every word.

-- Francine Toon, Sunday Times bestselling author of 'Pine'
Gorgeous, macabre, beautifully crafted . . .a brilliant re-making of an old tradition, and this is a book destined to be read and re-read through many a long winter night -- Amanda Mason, author of 'The Wayward Girls'

You won't a more thrilling winter read this year, or a better line up of writers who have mastered the gothic and ghostly.

-- Sara Collins, Costa Award-winning author of 'The Confessions of Frannie Langton'

It lured me in, then held me fast. A gut-wrenching collection of ghostly tales, at once sumptuous and thrilling, rich and raw. Powerful, original and beautifully written, I didn't want them to end.

-- Joanne Burn, author of 'The Hemlock Cure'
The Haunting Season contains stories by some of our finest contemporary writers - between them, they revitalize the traditional winter's tale with vibrant, tense writing that will haunt you long after you finish reading -- Jenn Ashworth, author of 'A Kind of Intimacy'
