Mark, a lifelong horror fan and champion of the short story, had this to say of his new project: “I grew up reading and loving the Pan and Fontana Books of Horror and Ghost Stories, and have always harboured an ambition to edit an annual non-themed horror anthology of my own. I would love it if The Spectral Book of Horror Stories became a long and fondly-regarded series. My aim is for each volume to showcase the very best that the genre has to offer.”
