Black Shuck Books is proud to present REMEMBER THE DEAD, two complete anthologies of Halloween and Christmas ghost stories in one volume. British Fantasy Award-winning editor J.A. Mains has once again curated a collection of outstanding stories – including a previously unknown tale by E. Nesbit – originally published throughout the 19th and early-20th centuries, and rarely-seen since. With an introduction by Mike Ashley and notes on the authors by the editor, REMEMBER THE DEAD is another important volume for those interested in the Victorian era of supernatural tales.
The hardback edition will be strictly limited to 50 copies worldwide, individually numbered and signed by the editor.
