Product Description

Ghost Stories of an Antiquary (1904) established the reputation of M. R. James as a first-class writer of supernatural fiction; the Collected Edition of his stories has never been out of print. A prodigiously original imagination - and his ability to amuse and surprise - have ensured his hold over a wide readership. His subject is the leisurely, late-Victorian, middle-class world of country houses, seaside inns, out-of-the-way railway stations, and cathedral closes, where gentlemen of independent means and antiquarian tastes suddenly find themselves confronted by terrifying agents of supernatural malice.
This selection of twenty-one stories represents the best of James's work, and is the first edition to incorporate improved texts based on a collation of printed versions of the stories with the available manuscripts.
