Terrific - every bit as good as an MR James collection - ROSIE ANDREWS, author of THE LEVIATHAN
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

It's a wonderful anthology: chilling, moving, tremendously satisfying, and a joy to read. - AMANDA MASON, author of THE WAYWARD GIRLS
An eerily macabre, hauntingly propulsive collection of ghostly tales - JOANNE BURN, author of THE HEMLOCK CURE
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
