About the author

M. R. James (1862–1936) is considered the father of the British ghost story. Before gaining fame as a fiction writer, James had a career as a respected scholar of the medieval period. With the release of his Ghost Stories of an Antiquary, James built a reputation in horror literature that has gone on to inspire greats such as H. P. Lovecraft, Clark Ashton Smith, and Stephen King. James later became provost of Eton College from 1918 until his death in 1936. He is buried in Eton.

    Classic ghostly tales well written by authors such as Edgar Allan Poe, Charles Dickens, and Oscar Wilde amongst others. I much prefer these kinds of ghost stories than to the ones that occur today filled with violence and horror. These stories are of a much more subtle kind.
