An Old Man's Winter Night: Ghostly Tales " is the newest collection of ghost stories by Tom Dawe, one of Newfoundland and Labrador's most distinguished writers. The stories, all based on ones Dawe himself has collected across the province over the years, include 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 haunted, or built on a fairy path; and another of a ghostly sled dog that returns to save its master lost in a blizzard. Targeted to middle readers, the book includes original, deeply atmospheric illustrations by acclaimed artist Veselina Tomova. The images, as powerful as the stories themselves, fuse word and image, hauntingly. These are chilling tales perfect for reading or telling by the fireside on a cold winter's night.
