The Obverse Book of Ghosts (ed Cavan Scott)


Editor Cavan Scott says: “The Obverse Book of Ghosts follows in the phantasmagorical footsteps of those classic supernatural anthologies of the past, but drags the unquiet dead screaming into the 21st Century. After all, isn’t it about time we were once again afraid of things that go bump in the night?”

  1. Richard Wright, Goodreads

    “This (beautifully produced) little hardback was a delight, and if you’ve any urge at all to delve into a book of spooky yarns, I suggest you make it this one.”

  2. Black Abyss

    “There is also a lot of originality on display here and for once it’s a collection that doesn’t take itself too seriously with several tales showing that humour can be used successfully in a horror story without lessening its impact. An enjoyable and wide ranging collection with something for every palette.”
