Christmas Eve ghost stories used to be as important a festive tradition as a mince pie.

On this month’s Northern Soul Podcast, Laura Brown talks to four Northern horror writers about Christmas, ghosts, M.R. James and TV specials. She hears from John Reppion and Leah Moore, a husband and wife team from Liverpool who write comics. They have just published Ghost Stories of an Antiquary, an illustrated comic adapted from stories by M.R. James. In addition, Adam Scovell chats about his first book Folk Horror: Hours Dreadful and Things Strange, and Christopher Brown, host of The Last Horror Podcast, author of the The Video Nasties Moment and host of Cheap Thrills at Liverpool Small Cinema talks all things horror.
