This volume collects four of M. R. James's most beloved stories of the supernatural. These tales show how James redefined the ghost story and exemplify his connection to academia, antiquities, and medievalism, occupations that inspired and informed his fiction. Perfect as an introduction to James's understated mode of horror, these spine-chilling ghost stories demonstrate his mastery of the form.
