Our Haunted Shores: Tales from the Coasts of the British Isles, edited by Jimmy Packham, Emily Napier, and Joan Passey / From the British Library's "Tales of the Weird" series / ISBN 9780712354219 / 318-page paperback published in 2022


From the unsettling expanses of mud flats to foreboding cliffs and treacherous reefs, the coasts of the British Isles have provided inspiration for storytellers for millennia, creating a rich literary and cultural significance to these spaces in between the land and sea.

The shoreline can be a destination for pleasure, but it is also the rife with peril. In this new collection, the founders of the Haunted Shores Research Network have curated a chilling literary tour of the coasts of England, Ireland, Scotland and Wales, including tales of woeful shipwreck, lighthouse terrors and uncanny revenants amid the bustle of the harborside.
