THE GHOSTS AND SCHOLARS BOOK OF SHADOWS VOLUME 2 edited by Rosemary Pardoe. Neuilly-Le-Vendin, France; Sarob Press; 2014. 1st edition hardcover. LIMITED to 325 NUMBERED COPIES.
The first “Book of Shadows”, published in 2012, was a resounding success and SOLD OUT very quickly. This success encouraged editor Rosemary Pardoe and publisher Robert Morgan to invite submissions for a follow-up. Sarob Press is now pleased to present a terrific line up of a further twelve stories (prequels & sequels to eleven of the classic ghost stories of Montague Rhodes James not covered in volume one) for the chilling pleasure of the discerning enthusiast of the supernatural tale.
