The new Hellebore ushers in the festive season with a series of essays that evoke a time where there was “not a village in England that had not a ghost in it, the churchyards were all haunted, every large common had a circle of fairies belonging to it, and there was scarce a shepherd to be met with who had not seen a spirit”—a time that may well represent the essence of Britain itself.
That something going bump this Christmas Eve night might not be Santa... just saying.
