It is a winter's evening in the historic university town of Cambridge at the end of the nineteenth century. In college rooms, a group of friends gathers. A fire flickers in the grate and, silently, Montague Rhodes James places a lighted candle by his chair, shuffles his papers, and begins to read... So the classic ghost stories of M. R. James were presented to the world. Now, in this definitive 4-part recording, are collected all of James's published tales of 'pleasing terror'.
