This winter Avalard Publishing invites you to settle down by the fire, and snuggle into your favourite armchair with two chilling anthologies from acclaimed writer/director Lawrence Gordon Clark.
Lawrence Gordon Clark’s Ghost Stories For Christmas is a collection of classic M.R. James tales of the supernatural, selected and introduced by Lawrence Gordon Clark. Gordon Clark’s introductions reflect on his own lengthy association with James’ work and draw upon his experience adapting many of the stories for television.
The volume will be a fitting introduction to new readers of James’ work, and a unique addition to any M.R. James library, while at the same time rekindling memories of Christmases past.
Telling Stories is the first printed collection of Lawrence Gordon Clark’s own short stories, many of which deal with supernatural themes familiar from his television work.
Both books will be available in print and electronic formats. Further details on contents and ordering details will be posted on the Avalard Publishing site in due course.
