These four stories of spirits from beyond are guaranteed to add extra chill to your winter nights! In the never-before-published "Silver Nitrate Blues", a photographer with a secret has a frightening encounter with a woman who is homeless in every sense; "The Haunted House" introduces a house that doesn't take kindly to invading ghost hunters; in "Blind-Stamped", a bookseller receives a surprising and terrifying gift from a recently-deceased customer; and "The Christmas Spirit" takes the Victorian idea of telling ghost stories at Christmas and gives it a disturbing contemporary spin. -Lisa Morton
