Was very chuffed to be invited to write a short story for The Obverse Book of Ghosts, out on Halloween!
Here's the blurb - and it's a great line up, Obverse are doing great things and I really enjoyed their Panda Book of Horror Stories last year.
THE OBVERSE BOOK OF GHOSTS
Edited by Cavan Scott
Published in hardback by Obverse Books in October 2010
Think ghosts just hang around spooky old houses or crumbling graveyards?
Obverse Books is proud to announce a new collection of contemporary ghost stories that will unnerve and terrify. The Obverse Book of Ghost collects 14 tales of spectral terror, guaranteed to leave you awake at night.
Editor Cavan Scott says: “The Obverse Book of Ghosts follows in the phantasmagorical footsteps of those classic supernatural anthologies of the past, but drags the unquiet dead screaming into the 21st Century. After all, isn’t it about time we were once again afraid of things that go bump in the night?”
Contributors to this exciting new anthology include:
George Mann (The Affinity Bridge, Ghosts of Manhattan)
Paul Magrs (Creator of Iris Wildthyme, The Brenda and Effie Series)
Tom Fletcher (The Leaping)
Guy Adams (The World House, Torchwood: The House That Jack Built)
Rebecca Levene (The Infernal Game series, Tomes of the Dead: Anno Mortis)
Johnny Mains (Back from the Dead: The Legacy of the Pan Book of Horror Stories)
Mark Michalowski (Being Human: Chasers, Doctor Who: Shining Darkness)
Mark Wright – (Doctor Who: Project Destiny, co-producer of Iris Wildthyme audios)
Nick Walters (Doctor Who: Reckless Engineering, Doctor Who: The Fall of Yquatine)
Scott Handcock (Doctor Who: The Rising Night, Doctor Who: The Phantom Planet)
Stuart Douglas (Iris Wildthyme and the Celestial Omnibus, Miss Wildthyme and Friends Investigate)
The Obverse Book of Ghosts also features short-story debuts from TV scriptwriter Philip Meeks and journalist Nick Peers.
