Some pictures tell a story, and a certain old print acquired by a collector proves to have a very dark tale to relate, and in a most uncanny fashion. A classic tale from the master of the English ghost story M. R. James. Originally written to read by the fireside to the members of the Chit Chat Club of Cambridge, this story was first published in James's first collection The Ghost Stories of an Antiquary in 1904. This telling comes with a short afterword which provides some notes and commentary on the text.

The oration was magnificent. The narrator was very animated and told the story with emotion and verve.
It was very spooky.
I enjoyed the description of the poacher and the kidnap of the child.
SPOOKY BEYOND COMPARE
