We here at Spectral Towers have been feverishly discussing the format of the first ever Spectral Christmas Ghost Story Annual, The Thirteen Ghosts of Christmas, in an effort to bring you people something *really* special, and we think we’ve done it. So, here’s what to look forward to:
HARDBACK EDITION: Limited, numbered edition, with an introduction on the ghost story by Johnny Mains, followed by the thirteen stories, each of which will have a brief intro written by Simon Marshall-Jones. Cover image will feature artwork by Vincent Shaw-Morton, framed by a silver foiled design, making it somewhat reminiscent of the Victorian/Edwardian Annuals which provided the inspiration for the anthology (along with Scott Harrison’s Twitter remark which sparked things off!). There will also be coloured endpapers and a silk ribbon bookmarker to set things off nicely, plus some exclusive bonus material will also be included – more details soon on that! Edition size TBD.
PAPERBACK EDITION: As above, but without the silver-foiling and bonus material.
The HB will retail at £25, which includes postage and packing UK – other prices will be forthcoming soon. If you would like to put your name down on the reservation list to ensure you get hold of a copy then please let us know on spectralpress[AT]gmail[DOT]com today – by all accounts this will be a popular book, so get your reservation in as soon as possible!
Look forward to hearing from you!
