Ghost Stories of M R James

Ghost Stories of M R James


Montague Rhodes James (M.R. James) is widely regarded as one of the best Ghost Story writers ever. He redefined the genre by abandoning the formal Gothic cliches of his predecessors and using 'real life' contemorary settings.

He is known as the originator of the 'antiquarian ghost story' and garnered many admirers, including the Master, H.P. Lovecraft. His work influences contempory writers such as Stephen King and Ramsey Campell.

In 2009 Sam Raimi realesed the movie "Drag me to Hell", a story loosely based on M.R.James' "Casting the Runes" (included in this anthology).

Lovely. It really is a delight. And, more than adequately, happily creepy, thanks to M.R. James. Noticed spelling mistakes at one point or the other, towards the collections end. Nothing so alarming as to be unforgivable, though it's being addressed would be a good thing. Cheers.
