The Garden of Ghosts is a gathering of original Victorian ghost stories by Scott Thomas. Whether set in rural England or a summery New England village, or in snowy London or a haunted house in Boston, each ghostly tale harkens in some way to the mysterious realm of vegetation.
"Scott Thomas' stories have a delicate muscularity and a poignancy that lingers long after reading them. The Garden of Ghosts is a rare and beautiful collection. The tales within deserve to be doled out in increments and savored as one would a good cigar paired with a 20-year-old whiskey." - Jeff VanderMeer, author of Shriek: An Afterward
"Thomas rises from the eerie evolution of Nathaniel Hawthorne, Edgar Allan Poe, Ambrose Bierce, F. Marion Crawford and H.P. Lovecraft." - Jonathan Sisson, The Quoddy Tides

About the Author
Scott Thomas is the author of six short story collections which include Over The Darkening Fields and The Garden of Ghosts. While Quill and Candle reflects Thomas' passion for New England, his interest in things ghostly was influenced early on by the ghostly elements in Dickens' A Christmas Carol and the American Henry James' very British A Turn of the Screw. Thomas lives in a small coastal village in Maine along with numerous cats and his girlfriend Peggy.
