Album artwork for Haunters at the Hearth: Eerie Tales for Christmas Nights by Lucy Evans and Tanya Kirk

In the comfortable coffee-room of the old Boar’s Head, half a dozen guests, principally commercial travellers, sat talking by the light of the fire. The talk had drifted from trade to politics, from politics to religion, and so by easy stages to the supernatural...

In the winter months, the cosiness of the hearth and armchair – or reading nook of choice – comes together with tales of creeping horror to form an enduring irresistible tradition of supernatural tales told – and read – in the long hours of darkness.

Pairing up once again, Lucy Evans and Tanya Kirk present a new selection of vintage hearthside chillers, including strange tales of souls on the boundaries of life from W F Harvey and A M Burrage, a piece in which Christmas tree shopping leads to dire misfortune from Mildred Clingerman and a tale of jolly carolling gone sinister by L P Hartley.
