The Christmas Ghost Stories of Lawrence Gordon Clark - New Book!

Well. the shops are filling up with selection boxes and cards featuring improbably well-fed robins. So we know what's bearing down on us like a tinselly Juggernaut of consumerism. Fortunately some people have good ideas for Christmas prezzies (though booze is always acceptable, hint hint). Those sons of fun at Spectral Press, for instance, are offering this. A hefty collector's item, indeed.
