Polar Horrors : Chilling Tales from The Ends of The Earth | John Miller (Ed)
As the snow lay round about, deep and crisp and ... white as a corpse's hand. The second anthology of seasonal weird tales has arrived from the British Library, and this time it comes from the polar wastes.

From lurid Arctic narratives of life amongst polar bears to tales of ghostly visitations within the wind-blown wilds of the southern continent, this new collection uncovers a wealth of neglected material from this niche of literature obsessed with the limits of human experience.
Featuring tales rife with aliens, twisted science, and madness spanning from 1837–1946, this anthology includes 12 tales
