Winter is here and Christmas is around the corner, calling for a spectacular date with haunted Christmas tales. The Winter Spirits: Ghostly Tales for Frosty Nights anthology publishes today in the UK with Hachette / Sphere Books, featuring twelve short stories by some of the most lauded gothic and historical fiction authors. From haunted houses to wild Scottish islands, these tales are a deliciously spooky and absorbing follow up to The Haunting Season (2021). We’re beyond delighted that our author – Elizabeth Macneal, #1 Times bestseller and Waterstones Paperback of the Year award winner, has another short story, Banished, published in this collection.

You can find new and original stories in this collection featuring authors Bridget Collins, Imogen Hermes Gowar, Kiran Millwood Hargrave, Andrew Michael Hurley, Jess Kidd, Natasha Pulley, Elizabeth Macneal, Laura Purcell, Susan Stokes Chapman, Laura Shepherd-Robinson, Stuart Turton and Catriona Ward.

Congratulations, Elizabeth, on another brilliant and exquisitely written short story! Get your copy here.
