The Ghosts & Scholars Book of Follies and Grottoes

Sarob Press have announced publication in mid-September of The Ghosts & Scholars Book of Follies And Grottoes, the latest in the series of Jamesian anthologies edited and introduced by Rosemary Pardoe. The architectural features of the title are among the most pleasing monuments in the English landscape, and sufficiently enigmatic in their history and traditions to offer themes for the antiquarian ghost story, as well as more contemporary approaches. 

The book includes thirteen stories, eight of them new, with five reprints, which 'range widely, from mysterious towers and classical temples to hidden grottoes; from revivals of the worship of ancient gods to unexpected distortions of space and time'.

This is a limited, hand-numbered edition with cover art by Paul Lowe. Previous Ghosts & Scholars anthologies have not remained in print for very long!
