Individual, unabridged short story that folds like a map, but can be read like a book. The slow touch of a frozen finger will trace your spine as the tale of a spectre warning a signalman of impending disaster unfolds. It was first published in the Christmas 1866 edition of All The Year Round - a journal edited by Charles Dickens himself. The timing is significant, as Dickens had been involved in a serious train crash at Staplehurst in the summer of 1865, in which several people died. Obviously deeply affected by the tragedy, he went on to write this classic ghost story.
