M. R. James is one of the finest English language ghostwriters ever published. These short stories are not only classics of their genre, but are outstanding examples of beautifully paced understated terror and sociological horror – reaching to the dark expanse of the unconscious mind.
Volume Three of ‘Tales of the Supernatural’ features the stories: ‘Oh Whistle, and I’ll come to you, my lad’, ‘A School Story’, ‘The Stalls of Barchester Cathedral’ and ‘The Mezzotint’ read by Murray Melvin, Ian Fairbairn and Phil Reynolds.
“There are some authors one wishes one had never read in order to have the joy of reading them for the first time. For me, M.R. James is one of these.” Ruth Rendell
