About the book

Synopsis

'My name is John Gregory. What follows is my Bestiary - my personal account of the denizens of the dark I've encountered, together with the lessons I have learned and the mistakes I have made. I have held nothing back, and my hope is that the spook who follows me will continue to keep this record of the practical ways in which we deal with the dark.'

A companion title to the phenomenally successful Spook's series. Discover how to bind a boggart and deal with a dead witch in this fascinating and lavishly illustrated Spook's own 'notebook'. A must for die-hard fans of the series and an irresistible introduction to the dark and the dangerous for new recruits.

About the Author

Joseph Delaney is a retired English teacher living in Lancashire. He has three children and nine grandchildren and is a wonderful public speaker available for conference, library and bookshop events. His home is in the middle of Boggart territory and his village has a boggart called the Hall Knocker, which was laid to rest under the step of a house near the church. Most of the places in the Spook's books are based on real places in Lancashire. And the inspiration behind the stories often comes from local ghost stories and legends.

Julek Heller was born in 1944 and his Polish parents came to the UK in 1947 as refugees. Married with four children, Julek has been an established artist for fantasy publishing since the 1970s.
