Victorian ghost stories? Sure, why not? But Victorian CHRISTMAS ghost stories? That’s next level shit right there. Valancourt, the little press that could, brings to life those forgotten pages for the modern society to enjoy and this first book of (3) Christmas collections is the handbook on how to have a very scary holiday. Each story has a brief intro/author biography prefacing it for extra bits of sacred knowledge. All these were gathered from 19th century periodicals that circulated around December for their readers to witness under candle or fire light. It’s not a chunky book, clocking in at 13 tales, so you very well could conquer it in a week or two. Keep in mind, these are old-timey stories and there won’t be guts and such decking the halls. It’s a traditional, classy, and grounded collection of supernatural stories for the ghouls of Yule (11/25).
