The Ghost Stories of M.R. James by M.R. James

Hardcover – British Library – Jul 2018 – 194 pages

The Ghost Stories of M.R. James collects the tales that best illustrate the author’s quiet mastery of the ghost story form. Running through each of these stories is a slowly escalating sense of unease and dread, which ultimately shifts into the wildly uncanny. James’ characters exist in a world of ancient objects whose atrocious histories begin to repeat when they are disturbed, and the blinkered repression common to James’ narratives only amplifies the shock of the spectral appearance.
