    Inside the box:

Expect stories from beloved authors like Charles Dickens alongside works by more unexpected names, plucked from the Library archives, Chill Tidings continues a long tradition of ghost stories for Christmas.

    Crawling Horrors: Creeping Tales of the Insect Weird

    Killer hornets, strange moths and supernatural bees. This anthology offers a broad range of stories from the long history of insect literature, where six-legged beasts play many roles from lethal enemies to ethereal messengers.

    Immerse yourself in the whispering voices between the branches in Wistman’s Wood on Dartmoor, witness an inexplicable death in Yorkshire’s Strid Wood and prepare yourself for an encounter with malignant pagan powers in the dark of the New Forest. This edition also includes notes on the real locations and folklore which inspired these deliciously sinister stories.
