All-singin’, all-dancin’, super fandango ghosts and ghoulies


Well, the moment is almost upon us. Ladies and gentlemen, I refer to the glorious deluxe edition of The Christmas Ghost Stories of Lawrence Gordon Clark. Published by Spectral Press, this beautiful anthology of stories by M.R. James and Charles Dickens has in common the hand of British TV director Lawrence Gordon Clark, who made them for television in the 1970s. The deluxe edition contains seven James stories – The Stalls of Barchester Cathedral, A Warning to the Curious, The Treasure of Abbot Thomas, The Ash Tree, Lost Hearts, Casting the Runes and Count Magnus – plus The Signalman by Dickens along with an unfilmed script for Count Magnus by the great Basil Copper. Clark introduces each story, plus the script, there is a lengthy Q&A (by myself) with the great man along with a short stage version of Lost Hearts and a foreword by Mark Gatiss. Illustrations are by the wonderful Nick Gucker and most of the photographs by Mark Davis. This is a limited edition and most copies have been sold. Order yours now direct from Spectral Press.
