James M.R. Ghost Stories


SELECTED AND INTRODUCED BY RUTH RENDELL M. R. James wrote his ghost stories to entertain friends on Christmas Eve, and they went on to both transform and modernise a genre. James harnesses the power of suggestion to move from a recognisable world to one that is indefinably strange, and then unforgettably terrifying. Sheets, pictures, carvings, a dolls house, a lonely beach, a branch tapping on a window - ordinary things take on more than a tinge of dread in the hands of the original master of suspense. .

Montague Rhodes James Count Magnus and Other Ghost Stories


Montague Rhodes James is considered one of the greatest writers of ghost stories of all time. Born in Kent, England in 1862, James was a well-known and respected scholar in his time for his exacting and informative research in medieval studies. He went on to become a Provost at King’s College, Cambridge, and later Eton, in addition to publishing four popular and influential collections of ghost stories between 1904 and 1925. His story-telling modernized the traditional gothic conception of a supernatural tale to the more realistic contemporary settings and characters of the early 20th century. James incorporated his vast knowledge of antiquities to make the details of his ghost stories all the more genuine and frightening and reveled in contrasting quiet bucolic settings with strange and unexplained events. James’s style was widely influential and inspired famous horror writers, such as H. P. Lovecraft and Stephen King. “Count Magnus and Other Ghost Stories” contains a collection of some of James’ most famous ghost stories.

J. Sheridan Le Fanu The Ghost and the Bone-setter - The Complete Ghost Stories of J. Sheridan Le Fanu, Vol. 5 of 30 (Unabridged)


Joseph Sheridan Le Fanu gave life to the modern ghost story style and inspired the genre's most famous contributor, M. R. James. Gathered together for the first time are Le Fanu's complete ghost stories in 30 extraordinary recordings. A manuscript from the collection of the late Rev. Francis Purcell, an Irish country priest whose interests extended to the gathering of old local legends. In this tale, Terrance Neil, local handyman and bone-setter, encounters a rather bad-tempered spirit who sets him a rather onerous and distasteful task. The recording is accompanied by an eBook essay, reflecting on the story's influences and legacy, written by Le Fanu authority, Jim Rockhill.

M. R. James Five Ghost Stories (Unabridged)


M. R. James wrote, arguably, the finest supernatural tales in English literature, and this collection contains the best of them, including 'Canon Alberic's Scrapbook', 'Oh, Whistle, and I'll Come To You, My Lad', 'Lost Hearts', 'Casting the Runes', and 'Count Magnus'. James was something of an actor and gifted storyteller and read his tales aloud to select gatherings on many a Christmas Eve. His intention, he said, was to implant in his listener the idea that, 'if I am not careful, something of this kind might happen to me!' James (1862-1936) was an English medieval scholar and provost of King's College, Cambridge, and then Eton College. His ghost stories are beautifully crafted, ranging from the insidiously unsettling to the totally terrifying; his characters may catch the slightest movement out of the corner of their eye or hear, in the depths of the night, an indistinct rustling from a neighbouring bed. His professional interest in antiquarianism pervades many stories. He uses everyday contemporary settings like houses, omnibuses, hotels, golf courses, schools, and beaches, making the intrusion of the supernatural that much more unnerving. For Magpie Audio, narrator Greg Wagland relishes the opportunity to raise a goose bump or two.
