Ghostly Tales


A vengeful phantom lurks in a country graveyard.

A whaling crew becomes trapped on a haunted ship.

A human skull is kept locked in a cupboard, but sometimes at night, it screams...

Ghostly Tales transports the reader to a time when staircases creaked in old manor houses, and a candle could be blown out by a gust of wind, or by a passing ghost. Penned by some of the greatest Victorian novelists and masters of the ghost story genre, each story is illustrated with exquisitely eerie artwork in this special gift edition featuring an embossed textured case and a ribbon marker.

Illustrated by Bill Brag, an internationally exhibited artist whose work appears regularly in the Guardian and the New York Times. In 2016, he received the V&A Editorial Illustration Award. He lives in London.
