Fontana Ghost & Horror Booklist

This is doubtless far from complete, but if anybody can help out I’d be grateful. Other than the later volumes in the Horror and Ghost series’, I’m not looking at anything post 1979.

    Hello,

    please can you tell me where I can buy the books from the series Fontana ghost stories? I am still looking for all the numbers from 10-20.
    Thanks,
    Hettie.

      Hello Hettie,

      Maybe you’ve found the Fontana books you were after (as it’s a year ago) but if not ebay and Amazon have plenty of them, very often you can get them for as cheap as 1p on there. Hope this helps.

      Best wishes,

      Ben

    I bought a horror collection in sometime between 1981 and 1984. I can’t remember if it was part of a series of anthologies or a one off. I can’t really remember any of the stories. I would imagine it was a UK publication that made its way down to Australia. I do remember the cover however, which featured the figure of a man/plant hybrid (green and brown), with wide, staring eyes. He/it was reaching ‘out’ of the cover towards the reader.

    Not much to go on but any help appreciated as it is bugging the hell out of me! I usually keep all my books (even that far back!) but this one seems to have gone astray.
