The Christmas Ghost Story Annual is coming along very nicely, and the final selection has almost been made. There’ll be some familiar names and some less well-known, but all the stories are excellent examples of modern interpretations (and reinterpretations) of the classic ghost story. The selection spans all styles, from grim to blackly comedic, and so there should be something for everyone in there.

We here at Spectral were impressed by the quality of submissions – in fact, there were enough to nearly fill next year’s annual in addition to this year’s. Authors will be contacted very soon as to whether they were successful or not – so keep looking in your inbox over the next few days!

There was one surprise: Simon Bestwick’s tale ‘The Judgement Call’ so impressed us that it’s going to replace the originally planned chapbook of his which was due to be published in June next year. Now, we are looking to publish ‘The Judgement Call’ in either September 2013 (as a taster for the Ghost Story Annual) or December 2013. Keep checking back here as more details become available.

Onwards and upwards!
