Following in the illustrious footsteps of
Charles Dickens and M. R. James, Peter Leather has written a ghost story each
Christmas since 1995 for his popular Hidden City column in The Birmingham News.
The stories are entirely fictional but based on real events and historical
locations in Birmingham. With the spookily-numbered 13th about to appear, he
has produced this compilation of the stories along with a detailed explanation
of the genuine history behind them.
Peter Leather is the Lecturer in Birmingham Studies at the University of Birmingham and author of the books, A Brief History of Birmingham (also published by Brewin Books) and The Buildings of Birmingham.
