Three new Christmas Ghost Stories for 2021!
Reading a ghost story on Christmas Eve was once as much a part of traditional Christmas celebrations as turkey, eggnog, and Santa Claus. Biblioasis is thrilled to offer this series of beautifully illustrated, collectible books that share these classic Christmas ghost stories with readers across North America. Seth, our world-famous and beloved cartoonist, designs and illustrates each book in his own inimitable way. Trimmed to fit the coziest stocking, they’re perfect gifts for those who want a bit of extra Christmas chill.
To help make this holiday season the spookiest in centuries, Biblioasis is excited to present a special deal on our newest Christmas Ghost Stories. If you order all three new titles before Christmas, we’ll send them to you for $25.00, plus shipping.
These collectible books are ideal stocking stuffers, and make perfect gifts for the literary elves in your life. With three to four new books in the series scheduled for publication each year, the early first editions will sell out soon — so get yours today!
The Doll’s Ghost
When the Lady Gwendolen, age six, drops her doll down a staircase, her ladyship solemnly digs her fractured companion a grave. Luckily Mr Puckler, renowned doll doctor, thinks he can help—but when his daughter Else goes missing, he’s not sure whose voice he hears calling to him in the night.
When Lady Jane Lynke unexpectedly inherits Bells, a beautiful country estate, she declares she’ll never leave the peaceful grounds and sets about making the house her home. But she hasn’t reckoned on the obstinate Mr Jones, the caretaker she’s told dislikes her changes, yet never seems able to be found.
An Eddy on the Floor
After attending a séance at an acquaintance’s home, a man receives an unexpected job offer from another guest: resident doctor at the prison he directs. But when a prisoner begs to have his cell moved, terrified of what’s behind the next door, the young doctor starts to question his luck.
About Seth’s Christmas Ghost Stories
Halloween might seem like the spookiest time of year, but F. Marion Crawford, Edith Wharton, and Bernard Capes felt otherwise. They were among the many authors who set their scariest stories during the dark and shivering days of—yes, Christmas.
Biblioasis is thrilled to announce three new books in this series of beautifully illustrated collectibles that share these classic Christmas ghost stories with readers across North America. Seth, our world-famous and beloved cartoonist, has designed and illustrated each book in his own inimitable way. Trimmed to fit the coziest stocking, they’re specifically made for placement beside the registers of the finest bookstores.
