BTSA is created in the tradition of Charles Dickens' legendary annual 'All The Year Round' Winter-Christmas Editions, offering an assortment of literary and graphic creations for reader's winter and holiday entertainment. Like Dickens' annuals and in keeping with a time-honoured tradition of winter story-telling, beside our general stories, authors are welcome to send us ghostly, horror and supernatural stories as well as standard ones. All accepted authors will receive a free PDF copy of BTSA and a reduction for the purchase of one or two print copies.
