Tue, 08 December 2015 The Ghost Train Doesn’t Stop Here Anymore
Back in 2012 I had the fine fortune to write a section of an anthology horror play called The Hallowe’en Sessions, which had a run in the West End in London. I worked with fellow writers Kim Newman, Anne Billson, Sean Hogan, Paul McAuley, and Stephen Volk,
