Ghosts from the Library : Lost Tales of Terror and the Supernatural, Paperback / softback Book

Ghosts from the Library : Lost Tales of Terror and the Supernatural Paperback / softback

Edited by Tony Medawar

Part of the A Bodies from the Library special series

Paperback / softback


A brand new anthology of previously unpublished and uncollected supernatural mysteries by some of the masters of the Golden Age – thrills, spills and chills perfect for Halloween. It is said that books are written to bring sunshine into our dull, grey lives – to show us places we want to escape to, lives we want to live, people we want to love.

But there are also stories that can only be found in the deepest, darkest corners of the library.

Stories about the unexplained, of lost souls, of things that go bump before the silence.

Before the screaming. And some stories just disappear. Stories printed in old newspapers, broadcast live on the wireless, sometimes not even published at all – these are the stories you cannot find on even the dustiest of library shelves. Ghosts from the Library resurrects forgotten tales of the supernatural by some of the most acclaimed mystery authors of all time.

From Arthur Conan Doyle and John Dickson Carr to Agatha Christie and Daphne du Maurier, this spine-chilling anthology brings together thirteen uncollected tales of terror, plus some additional surprises. Close the windows. Draw the curtains. Just don’t let the lights go out…
