New hardback. Grey cloth. Second impression of this new edition. RRP £16.99. Considered by many to be the most terrifying writer in English, M. R. James was an eminent scholar who spent his entire adult life in the academic surroundings of Eton and Cambridge. His classic supernatural tales draw on the terrors of the everyday, in which documents and objects unleash terrible forces, often in closed rooms and night-time settings where imagination runs riot. Lonely country houses, remote inns, ancient churches or the manuscript collections of great libraries providesettings for unbearable menace, from creatures seeking retribution and harm. These stories have lost none of their power to unsettle and disturb. This edition presents all of James's published ghost stories. Darryl Jones's introduction and notes provide a fascinating insight into James's background and his mastery of the genre he made his own. 146 x 224 x 42 (mm). pp. xxxvi, 468.
