They're reprinting that classic Usborne book of Ghosts

Don’t care if it’s buried in a daily thread or whatever, sorry

I had it along with the UFO and Monsters ones. Love them but actually I gave them away to charity when I dug them up maybe 5 years back. Wasn’t as taken by them when I flicked through.

I just remember it for Gef the Ghost Mongoose

idk if i’ve read this but it reminds me of these kinds of books my auntie used to give me


there were others like …evil men, …serial killers, …weird mysteries, etc. but that ghost one used to scare the hell out of me, particularly the amityville, berkely square and borley rectory chapters.

I’ve had a lifelong love of Greek myths and legends thanks to this book:


Usborne’s Anna Howorth, who spearheaded the campaign, says…

So this is all just drummed up by the publisher themselves? Top marketing, you love to see it.

I had the three individual guides that made that one, yeah

For anyone who was s fan of the Borley Rectory section of this book, there is a pretty unique screen adaptation of it…

Caveat: there’s also what looks like a hokey as fuck version of it coming out imminently, so maybe avoid that :unamused:
