Haunted Legend

Ellen Datlow has released the table of contents for the upcoming Haunted Legends anthology to be published by Tor. It seems I've joined a rather tasty list of authors involved in the project.

My story, The Spring Heel, is based (surprisingly :-) on the Spring Heeled Jack legend - the long-legged, rather spindley character who was reportedly seen regularly on dark nights leaping about the streets of Liverpool (amongst other places).

Spring Heeled Jack? It sounds like that is something that I should definitely look up!

Congratulations Steve. Some excellent writers in that ToC, and good company to be keeping.

I only read about Spring Heeled Jack recently in 'History without the Boring Bits'. A very odd character it seems!
