“Joining In”
Ghost Highways

GHOST HIGHWAYS is the second of the Midnight Street Anthologies. It contains 12 previously unpublished stories and a further 3 reprinted stories, (one of which is a completely revised version), from some of the most exciting and proven masters of the genre, including Ramsey Campbell, Simon Clark, Ralph Robert Moore, Ray Cluley and Thana Niveau, as well as an introduction by Paul Finch.┬áThe themes relate to ghost highways in the fullest, often oblique, sense. But there is another aspect to these stories: that of the haunting residue; ghosts in all their various interpretations. The characters are haunted in some way, often in subtle ways. The nightmares that haunt them are often baleful, leaving the protagonists trapped within the fates they have invoked. Each story has an illustrated introductory page that suggests the mood of what is to come, tempting the reader into whatever nightmarish world the author has created. GHOST HIGHWAYS is the most ambitious project that Midnight Street Press has launched so far. There is subtlety, augmented by an impending or ongoing horror, and a focus on character that creates unease and ultimately, a full blown, terrifying denouement, often not immediately obvious, but always unsettling. GHOST HIGHWAYS is a unique journey along highways that will transport the reader to places – outside the comfort of home, of the cosy armchair – where demons in their many forms, hold sway.
