Rooted in place, slipping between worlds – a rich collection of unnerving ghosts and sinister histories.

Eight authors were given the freedom of their chosen English Heritage site, from medieval castles to a Cold War nuclear bunker. Immersed in the past and chilled by rumours of hauntings, they channelled their darker imaginings into a series of extraordinary new ghost stories.
