SYNOPSIS:


Number 13   The Tractate Middoth

A View from a Hill   Lost Hearts
 

Considered by many to be the foremost author of the traditional Ghost Story, M. R. James was a distinguished scholar who spent his entire adult life in the academic atmospheres of Eton and Cambridge.

His classic supernatural tales draw on the trepidations of the everyday, in which documents and objects unleash ghastly forces, often in enclosed confinements and night-time settings where the imagination runs riot. From isolated country houses to remote inns, ancient churches and vast libraries... These locations deliver intolerable menace from malevolent spirits seeking vengeance and harm.

80 years on, these stories have lost none of their power to unnerve and disturb.

This new volume includes four tales which have been adapted for television, expertly narrated by actor David Troughton.

 

 

“I have given M.R. James the title of genius, an accolade which should not be lightly bestowed.”
Ruth Rendall

“A writer of great supernatural imagination, a master of style and purity… I believe that it is unlikely his ghost stories will ever be surpassed.”
Christopher Lee

ABOUT THE WRITER:


MONTAGUE RHOADES JAMES

Montague Rhodes James (1862-1936) became one of Britain’s foremost medieval scholars studying and teaching a King’s College, Cambridge. However, it is not his scholarly works or achievements that he is best known for today.

His first collection, Ghost Stories of an Antiquary was published in 1904. A further three volumes followed More Ghost Stories (1911), A Thin Ghost and Other (1919) and A Warning to the Curious and Other Ghost Stories (1925). Following an English tradition, many of the thirty tales were written as Christmas Eve entertainments, and were read aloud to friends and colleagues.

Since his death, his stories have been read by millions across the globe, and have spawned numerous television, film, stage and radio adaptions.
