An Old Man's Winter Night is the most recent gathering of ghost tales by Tom Dawe, one of Newfoundland and Labrador's most distinguished writers. It includes tales of visitations both malevolent and benign. There are stories of ghostly galleons, of unsettling graves, of strange omens and fetches; an eerie tale of a notoriously haunted house, and another of a ghostly sled dog that returns to save its master when he is lost in a blizzard. All the stories are based on ones that Dawe himself has collected over the years. Veselina Tomova's haunting woodcut illustrations capture perfectly the book's dark moodiness.
