Ghosts, ghouls, witches, spectres, demons, the Grim Reaper, vampires, leprechauns, the Devil, as well as a host of other supernatural beings - along with the odd unsolved murder thrown in for good measure – all to be found within the pages of this unique first volume of Tom Slemen's work. Thirty-six stories that will haunt your mind and delight your dark side, all from the pen of one of England's greatest writers on the supernatural – Tom Slemen. Read about the baffling mystery of Old Swan's Mass Grave – was it a cover-up by the authorities? Be thrilled by the creepy history of Springheeled Jack, and dwell morbidly on the nature of the real-life vampires such as Golgon, Araminta and Manilu. Learn about the elusive but deadly enchanting Elvi of Sefton Park, and of the murderess who danced with her hangman at a Victorian ball. Savour the exciting witchcraft wars that centred on the Swan Inn, and unravel the identity of the mastercriminal who killed Julia Wallace in 1931 and left generations of professional and armchair detectives perplexed by his method of slaying without a trace. Just some of the eerie stories to be found in The Best of Tom Slemen – Volume 1.

Great creepy stories, awful narration
Tom's books are always well written, creepy and an excellent read especially if you are from the Merseyside area.
Mr Bill is a terrifying story .... but there are so many creepy characters in this book
No, not reading this sort of book. I wish the reader hadn't attempted to put on the worse scouse accent I have ever heard in my life. You can hardly understand what he says as it is a poor mix of American and Irish. Would have been better read just in his normal American accent if needs be but why didn't they get someone with a local accent to read it ... would have seemed much more authentic.
