Three new Christmas Ghost Stories for 2020!
Reading a ghost story on Christmas Eve was once as much a part of traditional Christmas celebrations as turkey, eggnog, and Santa Claus. Biblioasis is thrilled to offer this series of beautifully illustrated, collectible books that share these classic Christmas ghost stories with readers across North America. Seth, our world-famous and beloved cartoonist, designs and illustrates each book in his own inimitable way. Trimmed to fit the coziest stocking, they’re perfect gifts for those who want a bit of extra Christmas chill.
To help make this holiday season the spookiest in centuries, Biblioasis is excited to present a special deal on our newest Christmas Ghost Stories. If you order all three new titles before Christmas, we’ll send them to you for $25.00, plus shipping.
These collectible books are ideal stocking stuffers, and make perfect gifts for the literary elves in your life. With three to four new books in the series scheduled for publication each year, the early first editions will sell out soon — so get yours today!
The Morgan Trust
Intrigued by a travel guide’s mention of tales of hauntings, Selby Pyle, an “Amateur Psychic Investigator,” sets out for a village deep in the Welsh mountains—where the moss-covered walls of an unfinished Shangri La left behind by a deceased entrepreneur are far from the strangest things he encounters.
The Story of a Disappearance and an Appearance
After receiving word that his Uncle Henry has gone missing, W.R. travels to his town to join in the search, but soon suspects his uncle is already dead. After an unusual encounter with a traveling salesman, W.R. has a nightmare about a terrifying puppet show—and a ghostly clergyman
The Open Door
Retired officer Colonel Mortimer takes a lease on Brentwood, a mansion that shares grounds with the ruins of an older house—including a strange, vacant doorway. When his son falls ill and eerie events begin to unfold, Mortimer must face his fears in order to save his son.
About Seth’s Christmas Ghost Stories
Halloween might seem like the spookiest time of year, but H.R. Wakefield, Walter de la Mare, and Daphne du Maurier felt otherwise. They were among the many authors who set their scariest stories during the dark and shivering days of—yes, Christmas.
Biblioasis is thrilled to announce three new books in this series of beautifully illustrated collectibles that share these classic Christmas ghost stories with readers across North America. Seth, our world-famous and beloved cartoonist, has designed and illustrated each book in his own inimitable way. Trimmed to fit the coziest stocking, they’re specifically made for placement beside the registers of the finest bookstores.
Praise for Seth’s Christmas Ghost Stories
“[This] series of Christmas ghost stories, miniature books chosen and illustrated by the cartoonist Seth … [offers] chills—and charm.”
—John Williams, New York Times Book Review
“I just bought my set of these and they … are … PERFECT. I hope they do these every year.”
“The tension and dread creep through each story like an unseen monster, gaining in size and with each page and readying to pounce. Seth’s monochromatic and stark illustrations throughout add an extra dose of spooky to these stories of the supernatural.”
—Lindsey Childs, Prairie Fire
“These are beautiful little books … [My family’s] been reading them at home, and we’ve actually put them away so we can re-read them on Christmas Eve.”
—Matt Galloway, CBC’s Metro Morning
“For Seth, this is really a labour of love.”
—Peter Robb, Ottawa Citizen
“The two classic Christmas ghost stories that Seth and Biblioasis fashioned last year were a huge success for us. Nifty packaging, striking design—so Seth.”
—Ben McNally, Ben McNally Books, Toronto, ON
“Seth’s Christmas Ghost Stories series resurrects the legacy of fireside tales at Christmas with these beautifully illustrated editions.”
—John Toews, McNally Robinson Booksellers, Winnipeg, MB
