About this title

Synopsis:

Every gravedigger has a story to tell. Some are humorous, some poignant. But most gravediggers' tales have to be placed firmly in the category of Horror. When a young man is called upon to visit a cemetery, the old gravedigger's yarns chill his blood and invoke the darkest of nightmares, especially when the gravedigger hints at the terrible circumstances of Rose Burswick's death six decades ago. Her tale is so shocking and so terrifying that it cannot be fully revealed. But the gravedigger still can't resist giving this impressionable youth the scare of his life...Little does he know that the biggest scare is still to come. For Rose Burswick has become the most terrifying example of...ah, but the gravedigger must tell his own tale. He does it so well. "The Gravedigger's Tale" is the first journey into this volume's heart of darkness. Join award-winning writer Simon Clark as he presents an array of ghosts, eerie encounters and haunted landscapes to astonish the imagination - and invoke shivers aplenty...
