Eight Ghosts: The English Heritage Book of New Ghost Stories

by Various authors
£12.99   paperback  September Publishing (2017)

Eight Ghosts: The English Heritage Book of New Ghost Stories by Various authors A rich, unnerving collection of ghosts stories from Jeanette Winterson, Max Porter, Mark Haddon, Sarah Perry, Kate Clanchy, Andrew Michael Hurley, Kamila Shamsie and Stuart Evers. Each story was inspired by an English Heritage site.
 
Rooted in place, slipping between worlds – a rich collection of unnerving ghosts and sinister histories.
 
Eight authors were given after hours freedom at their chosen English heritage site. Immersed in the history, atmosphere and rumours of hauntings, they channelled their darker imaginings into a series of extraordinary new ghost stories.
 
Sarah Perry’s intense tale of possession at the Jacobean country house Audley End is a work of psychological terror, while Andrew Michael Hurley’s story brings an unforgettably shocking slant to the history of Carlisle Castle. Within the walls of these historic buildings each author has found inspiration to deliver a new interpretation of the classic ghost story.
 
Relish the imagined terrors at these exhilarating locations:
 
Kate Clanchy, Housesteads Roman Fort
Stuart Evers, Dover Castle
Mark Haddon, York Cold War Bunker
Andrew Michael Hurley, Carlisle Castle
Sarah Perry, Audley End
Max Porter Eltham Palace
Kamila Shamsie, Kenilworth Castle
Jeanette Winterson, Pendennis Castle
