An Old Man's Winter Night is the most recent gathering of ghost tales by Tom Dawe, one of Newfoundland and Labrador's most distinguished writers. It includes tales of visitations both malevolent and benign. There are stories of ghostly galleons, of unsettling graves, of strange omens and fetches; an eerie tale of a notoriously haunted house, and another of a ghostly sled dog that returns to save its master when he is lost in a blizzard. All the stories are based on ones that Dawe himself has collected over the years. Veselina Tomova's haunting woodcut illustrations capture perfectly the book's dark moodiness.

Tom Dawe is an award-winning poet, as well as a painter, editor, and educator, who lives in Conception Bay South, NL. He is always on the lookout for good ghost stories and bits of folklore; several of the stories he has collected are adapted in An Old Man?s Winter Night and Spirited Away: Fairy stories of old Newfoundland. He is a member of the Order of Canada, and the Order of Newfoundland and Labrador.

Born in Sofia, Bulgaria, Veselina Tomova graduated from Leipzig's School of Graphic Art and Book Design before moving to Newfoundland. She has illustrated books in Germany, Bulgaria and Canada. She divides her time between St. John's, Newfoundland, where she lives in a small house overlooking the harbour, and Rusalya, Bulgaria, where she tends her family?s vegetable garden and enjoys the antics of Bucky the dog and Ginger the cat.
