FIVE HORROR SHORT STORIES THAT WILL CREEP YOU OUT
Written by William Meikle
Author and editor William (Willie) Meikle shares with us this great list of terrifying short stories. His newest anthology, The Ghost Club: Newly Found Tales of Victorian Terror, is out this week. You can pick it up with one of the links below!
The Ghost Club, a new collection of supernatural stories, is coming from me at Crystal Lake Publising on 8th December 2017.
It's a simple premise.
In Victorian London, a select group of writers, led by Arthur Conan Doyle, Bram Stoker and Henry James held an informal dining club, the price of entry to which was the telling of a story by each invited guest.
These are their stories, containing tales of revenant loved ones, lost cities, weird science, spectral appearances and mysteries in the fog of the old city, all told by some of the foremost writers of the day. In here you'll find Verne and Wells, Tolstoy and Checkov, Stevenson and Oliphant, Kipling, Twain, Haggard, Wilde and Blavatsky alongside their hosts.
Come, join us for dinner and a story.
Here's the TOC, which may have a different running order in the final book.
