Eight Ghosts: The English Heritage Book of Ghost Stories
Rooted in place, slipping between worlds - a rich collection of unnerving ghosts and sinister histories. Eight authors were given after hours freedom at their chosen English heritage site. Immersed in the history, atmosphere and rumours of hauntings, they channelled their darker imaginings into a series of extraordinary new ghost stories. Sarah Perry's intense tale of possession at the Jacobean country house Audley End is a work of psychological terror, while Andrew Michael Hurley's story brings an unforgettably shocking slant to the history of Carlisle Castle. Within the walls of these historic buildings each author has found inspiration to deliver a new interpretation of the classic ghost story. Relish the imagined terrors at these exhilarating locations: Kate Clanchy, Housesteads Roman Fort Stuart Evers, Dover Castle Mark Haddon, York Cold War Bunker Andrew Michael Hurley, Carlisle Castle Sarah Perry, Audley End Max Porter Eltham Palace Kamila Shamsie, Kenilworth Castle Jeanette Winterson, Pendennis Castle
