Forthcoming 4 x 6 x 0.23 in 52 pages B&W illustrations Biblioasis

Biblioasis is thrilled to continue this series of beautifully illustrated, collectible, classic Christmas ghost stories designed and illustrated by world-famous cartoonist Seth. In How Fear Departed the Long Gallery, for the Peverils, the appearance of a ghost is no more upsetting than the appearance of the mailman at an ordinary house. Except for the twin toddlers in the Long Gallery. No one would dare be caught in the Long Gallery after dark. But upon this quiet and cloudy afternoon, Madge Peveril is feeling rather drowsy ...

Edward Frederic "E. F." Benson (1867 – 1940) was a prolific English writer, most well-known for his series of Mapp & Lucia books and his ghost stories.

Seth is the cartoonist behind the comic-book series Palookaville. His comics have a appeared in the New York Times magazine, Best American Comics, and McSweeney's Quarterly. His illustrations have appeared on the cover of The New Yorker, The Walrus, and CNQ.
