Coming winter 2011: Two Chilling Books by Lawrence Gordon Clark

Two Chilling Collections From Avalard Publishing

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.
