Publisher's Summary

The powerful sense of evil – darkness, creepy hairy presences, cloaks, hoods, talons and tentacles – pervades these classic ghost stories by M.R. James. A Cambridge scholar himself, James explored what happens when academics dabble in things they don’t understand and unleash forces of which they know nothing. The titles in Ghost Stories of an Antiquary range from witchcraft to the occult, and tap into our primal fear of things that go bump in the night. They are recognised as the best of their genre.

Great performances of the classic

I've heard dozens of readings of James' ghost stories over the years, particularly those from this book. The various readings on this recording are among the best. If you're new to James, this would be a wonderful place to start. Haunted objects, otherworldly visitations, and travel to foreign lands make the collection interesting. These are old-fashioned stories, very much of the author's time, but good, solid tales as only James can tell them.
