Product description

Curious Warnings: The Great Ghost Stories of M.R. James (150th Anniversary Edition)

M.R. James

Stephen Jones (Ed.)

Illustrations by Les Edwards

The corners of the hardback cover are very lightly bumped, otherwise in very good condition.

An illustrated collector's edition to celebrate the 150th anniversary of the birth of the father of the modern ghost story. Montague Rhodes James - M. R. James - was an English academic and provost of King's College and Eton. He started writing ghost stories to entertain his friends . . . and now, one hundred and fifty years after his birth, he is revered as the father of the modern English ghost story. This gorgeous hardback collection contains all thirty-five of M.R. James's highly acclaimed ghost stories, including the classics: 'Oh Whistle, and I'll Come to You, My Lad' and 'Canon Alberic's Scrapbook'. As well as a foreword by Clark Ashton Smith and an extended Afterword by Stephen Jones, the book is gloriously illustrated by award-winning artist Les Edwards, who has provided a frontispiece and a dozen full-page illustrations, as well as many small pictures throughout the text.
