Biblioasis is thrilled to continue this series of beautifully illustrated, collectible, classic Christmas ghost stories designed and illustrated by world-famous cartoonist Seth.

Aunt Julia, an elderly spinster with a mania for psychical research, has the keys to the haunted house on the square. She invites her nephew to accompany her on a midnight investigation into what really happened a hundred years ago when a servant girl fell to her death. But the house may not be as empty as it seems ...

Algernon Henry Blackwood (1869 – 1951) was a prolific English writer and broadcaster, best known for his chilling tales of the supernatural.

Seth is the cartoonist behind the comic-book series Palookaville. His comics have a appeared in the New York Times magazine, Best American Comics, and McSweeney's Quarterly. His illustrations have appeared on the cover of The New Yorker, The Walrus, and CNQ.
