About the book

Tim and Abi have always been different from their peers. Precociously bright, they spend their evenings in their parents attic discussing the macabre and unexplained, zealously re-reading books on folklore, hauntings and the supernatural. In particular, they are obsessed with photographs of ghostly apparitions and the mix of terror and delight they provoke in their otherwise boring and safe childhoods.

But when Tim and Abi decide to fake a photo of a ghost to frighten an unpopular school friend, they set in motion a deadly and terrifying chain of events that neither of them could have predicted, and are forced to confront the possibility that what began as a callous prank might well have taken on a malevolent life of its own.

An unsettling literary ghost story set between a claustrophobic British suburban town and a menacing Suffolk manor, THE APPARITION PHASE is an unnerving novel, which, like all the best ghost stories, pushes us repeatedly over the line between rational explanation and inexplicable fear. It asks us to consider what might be lurking in the shadows, and questions what is real and what is simply a trick of the mind and whether theres really a difference between the two.

About the Author

Will Maclean

Originally from the Wirral, Will Maclean has been fascinated by ghost stories since he was a child, and has been writing them almost as long as he can remember. He's written for television professionally since 2006, during which time he's worked as scriptwriter for people as varied as Alexander Armstrong, Al Murray and Tracey Ullman. 

As well as comedy, he's also written extensively for children's television, where he's been an integral part of writing teams that have picked up two BAFTAs and an International Emmy. He's also the co-author, along with James May, of the bestselling Man Lab Book of Usefulness, to tie in with the 2011 series. 

He now lives in London with his wife and young daughter.

    I love the idea that each book is numbered and limited, they're extra special because they're personalised with those sought-after signatures, and they are not on tip-in pages.
