YULETIDE FRIGHTS: VICTORIAN GHOST STORIES FOR CHRISTMAS
Edited and Introduced by William P. Simmons

This year, Christmas belongs to the dead. Shadow House Publishing gives you tidings of terror with YULETIDE FRIGHTS: VICTORIAN GHOST STORIES FOR CHRISTMAS.

The Winter Solstice. Yule. Christmas. The Holiday season has always hid horror beneath the holly and shadows behind the merriment. Long before Christianity, Christmas Eve was a night of Pagan mystery, when humanity prayed for the sun’s return, and spirits wandered snowy midnight lanes. The Victorians popularized the tradition of telling ghost stories at this festive time of year, savoring tales of specters and otherworldly beings amidst the warmth of Holiday joy. Best-selling editor William P. Simmons invites readers to continue this shivery tradition with a collection of the genre’s most terrifying Christmas stories.

See why the Holiday season is the most frightening time of the year with 20 rare and classic supernatural stories collected from various sources, featuring a diverse array of authors, some well-known, others unjustly forgotten. This is the dark gift you’ve been waiting for–a fearful feast of Yule stories that merge the Christmas traditions of years past with timeless nightmares…and visitations that could happen to you.

Bone-chilling classics from Charles Dickens, Sir Walter Scott, J.S. Le Fanu, and M.R. James appear alongside rare terror tales from forgotten authors who make their first appearance here in decades, including James Hain Friswell, F. Frankfurt Moore, Ernest R. Suffling, Dick Donovan, Bernard Capes, and Grant Allen. Christmas wouldn’t be complete without a visit from the genre’s Macabre Mistresses. Mary E. Braddon,Charlotte Riddell, Elizabeth Gaskell, and Louisa Baldwin fill your stockings with tales of dread and dismay for the merriest time of the year.

Spend this Christmas with graveyard visitants and fearsome night creatures from legend and lore. Celebrate with a spectral spectacle of goblins and sprites, family curses and pagan sacrifices, doomed houses and haunted minds. Wraiths, psychopomps, demons, and the Devil himself appear to share a cup of cheer…and make you look uneasily into the shadows.
