Merry Christmas, everybody!



Only kidding! This is the Chrismologist's perect Christmas song!


Scrooge and Marley (Deceased)

Sunday, 24 December 2017

It's Christmas Eve, which is the perfect time to read a good, old-fashioned ghost story set in Old London Town...

"Before I begin my story, it must be distinctly understood that Marley was dead – to begin with – just as he had been the previous Christmas Eve, and the seven Christmas Eves before that. Old Marley was as dead as a door-nail."

Scrooge and Marley (Deceased): The Haunted Man is available now from Green Man Books.
