Sphere will publish The Haunting Season, a "dazzling" collection of "haunted tales".
The title will include original short stories from Bridget Collins, Sara Collins, Imogen Hermes Gowar, Kiran Millwood Hargrave, Andrew Michael Hurley, Jess Kidd, Elizabeth Macneal, Natasha Pulley and Laura Purcell.
Sphere editor Rosanna Forte acquired world rights to the collection, which will be published as a "beautifully packaged, evocative" hardback in October 2021.
Forte said: "This is a project that has got all of our creative juices flowing at Little, Brown and I am tingling with excitement at our many plans for it for next year. These are some of the very finest storytellers of recent years and it is simply phenomenal to be working with such an astounding array of talent on a project like this."
