M. R. James is best remembered for his ghost stories which are widely regarded as among the finest in English literature. One of James’ most important achievements was to redefine the ghost story for the new century by dispensing with many of the formal gothic trappings of his predecessors, and replacing them with more realistic contemporary settings.
Stories included in this collection:
- A Thin Ghost and Others
- The Residence at Whitminster
- The Diary of Mr. Poynter
- An Episode of Cathedral History
- The Story of a Disappearance and an Appearance
- Two Doctors
These are wonderful, well-written thrilling and vigorous ghost tales. A must-have for classic ghost story fans!
