Routes to the map room

My friend Patrick:

This is a nice idea for a book: a collection of ghost stories specially commissioned by English Heritage, each inspired by one of their properties. One could wonder why they approached these writers specifically rather than those who specialise in horror or weird fiction. But it makes for an eye-catching package, I think, though it never quite shakes that sense of being a slightly rushed exercise, as if it were the product of a jolly weekend seminar in a draughty manor, somewhere at the far end of a long driveway.

A mixed bag, it seems, but enough good stuff in there that I’m looking forward to reading this.
