Martha Pym said that she has never seen a ghost and that she would very much like to do so, "particularly at Christmas, for you can laugh as you like, that is the correct time to see a ghost."
So begins Marjorie Bowen's story, The Crown Derby Plate, which is guaranteed to send shivers down your spine.  Martha Pym is right, Christmas is the time to curl up by the fire with a collection of stories designed to make your flesh creep.
Some are new stories, specially commissioned for this volume, such as Basil Copper's chilling Wish You Were Here, in which the postman delivers messages from beyond the grave.
The author of Psycho, Robert Bloch, contributes The Night Before Christmas, a powerful tale not to be read by those of a nervous disposition.
Others are by firm favourites such as Nigel Kneale, author of the classic Quatermass.  His story, The Stocking, tells of a Christmas visit from the furry, green-eyed, slithery Minkeys.
W.W. Jacobs, the master of the hair-raising short story, is represented by Jerry Bundler, one of his most compelling tales of terror.
From another time and another place comes Sabine Baring Gould's Mustapha, set in Egypt, which tells of a man tricked into damnation.
A wide range of stories are included in Mistletoe & Mayhem, from the cosily creepy to the truly horrific to make a treat for Christmas no-one will want to miss.
