M. R. James, “The Collected Ghost Stories”


31 spooky classic storiesAll of James’ published ghost stories

“A story must put the reader into the position of saying to himself, ‘If I’m not very careful, something of this kind may happen to me!'” (M. R. James)


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 nighttime settings where imagination runs riot. Lonely country houses, remote inns, ancient churches or the manuscript collections of great libraries provide settings 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’ published ghost stories.


Montague Rhodes James (1862-1936) was an English medievalist scholar best remembered as the author of many of the finest ghost stories in the English language.
