With Winter 2017 comes 3 new ghost stories! You can grab the complete line-up at a great price before the holidays.
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 Christmas Ghost Stories. If you order all eight titles—Charles Dickens’ The Signalman, A.M. Burrage’s One Who Saw, Marjorie Bowen’s The Crown Derby Plate, Edith Wharton’s Afterward, M.R. James’s The Diary of Mr. Poynter, E. F. Benson’s How Fear Departed the Long Gallery, W. W. Jacobs’ The Toll House, and Algernon Blackwood’s The Empty House—before Christmas, we’ll send them all to you for $60.00, 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!
PRAISE FOR THE CHRISTMAS GHOST STORIES SERIES
“I just bought my set of these and they … are … PERFECT. I hope they do these every year.”—Patton Oswalt
“[This] series of Christmas ghost stories, miniature books chosen and illustrated by the cartoonist Seth … [offers] chills—and charm.”—John Williams, New York Times Book Review
“I perused—nay, let me say devoured—four of the booklets in a night, and although I was in the security of my own domicile, ensconced in a favorite chair, these ‘ghost stories for Christmas,’ as they are advertised, left me in quite the state of perturbation. Had I any hair remaining upon my pate, I daresay it would have been standing on end.” … “A bit of the old eldritch in each hearth-warmed stocking.” —Robert Faires & Wayne Alan Brenner, Austin Chronicle
“These are beautiful little books … [My family’s] been reading them at home, and we’ve actually put them away so we can re-read them on Christmas Eve.”—Matt Galloway, CBC’S Metro Morning
“For Seth, this is really a labour of love.”—Peter Robb, Ottawa Citizen
“Nifty packaging, striking design—so Seth.”—Ben McNally, Ben McNally Books, Toronto, ON
“Seth’s Christmas Ghost Stories series resurrects the legacy of fireside tales at Christmas with these beautifully illustrated editions.”—John Toews, McNally Robinson Booksellers, Winnipeg, MB
