M. R. James

$ 2.99

 

M. R. James entirely redefined the ghost story for the modern reader. Abandoning many of the formal Gothic clichés of his predecessors, he chose instead realistic contemporary settings, whilst blending his esoteric interest in antiquarian subjects to fashion his own inimitable tales of horror. For the first time in publishing history, Delphi Classics presents the complete fictional works of M. R. James, as well offering every published work that James produced for the general reader. This comprehensive eBook offers numerous illustrations, informative introductions, rare texts and the usual Delphi bonus material. (Version 1)
