This titles follows on from previously successful Tales of the Weird Christmas title Spirits of the Season, subverting ideas of traditionally comforting festive anthologies with dark stories of the eerie and uncanny. Exploring stories from beloved authors such as Charles Dickens alongside works by more unexpected names such as Elinor Glyn, plucked from the Library archives, Chill Tidings continues a long tradition of ghost stories for Christmas.
The gifts are unwrapped, the feast has been consumed and the fire is well fed – but the ghosts are still hungry. The ghosts are at the door.
Welcome to the second new collection of dark Christmas stories in the Tales of the Weird series, ushering in a fresh host of nightmarish phantoms and otherworldly intruders bent on joining or ruining the most wonderful time of the year. Featuring classic tales from Algernon Blackwood, Rosemary Timperley, Sheridan Le Fanu and Elinor Glyn alongside rare pieces from the sleeping periodicals and literary magazines of the Library collection, it’s time to open the door and let the real festivities begin.
