Sarob Press is pleased to present a bumper first hardcover collection of ghostly stories by Michael Chislett. These thirteen stories are mostly set in or around the author’s fictional London borough of Milford and the suburb of Mabbs End (possibly some of the most haunted of London locations). Although Mr Chislett’s very original voice shines brightly in every story, a few also subtly (or not so) reveal his influences … especially Angela Carter, MR James & Arthur Machen. Some of the stories have previously appeared in the excellent Supernatural Tales magazine (edited by David Longhorn) and some in Rosemary Pardoe’s superb Ghosts & Scholars journal. “The Old Geezers” previously appeared in The Silent Companion (the fiction journal of “A Ghostly Company”). The novelette “The Changelings” and the story “Held in Common” are both original to this volume.
These are not your usual hauntings … in the city of ghosts there are no rules. And not everything is as it might, at first, appear.
There is darkness … and there is light … and, often, it’s not easy to spot the difference!
