Review

If you like horror/ghost stories then this book is a must * Thestral's Books * A book to keep forever! * Words and Pieces * Curious Warnings can fairly lay claim to being the most comprehensive collection of M.R. James' fiction to date * The Ghosts & Scholars M.R. James Newsletter * What better time of year to curl up with ghost stories from the father of the genre? * Sunday Express * The stories are still marvellous. Atmospherically creepy, disturbing, and wonderfully English in their understated nature and simple statements of supernatural happenings . . . their inherent creepiness is eminently readable * SFF World * There are some authors one wishes one had never read so that one might have the joy of reading them for the first time. For me, M.R. James is one of these * RUTH RENDELL * James is clearly the best that's ever been * MARK GATISS * There are all sorts of writers of all sorts of nightmares, but M.R. James wrote the best ghost stories. He may well have created the ghost story in its current form. Nobody can do what he did as well as he could * NEIL GAIMAN *

Product Description

A lavishly illustrated collector's edition containing all the supernatural tales ever written by M.R. James, the undisputed father of the modern ghost story.

'James is clearly the best that's ever been' MARK GATISS

M.R. James is one of the finest authors of supernatural fiction in the English language and revered as the father of the modern English ghost story. Many of his stories were originally written as Christmas entertainments and were read aloud by the author to selected gatherings of friends.

'There are all sorts of writers of all sorts of nightmares, but M.R. James wrote the best ghost stories. He may well have created the ghost story in its current form. Nobody can do what he did as well as he could' NEIL GAIMAN

Authorised by the writer's estate, Curious Warnings: The Complete Ghost Stories is the only volume that collects together all of James' much-loved supernatural tales - including the classics, 'Oh, Whistle, and I'll Come to You, My Lad', 'A Warning to the Curious' and 'Canon Alberic's Scrapbook' - together with his novel The Five Jars, story fragments, essays and poetry. Illustrated by award-winning artist Les Edwards and featuring an extensive historical Afterword by editor Stephen Jones, this is the ultimate collection for fans of M.R. James and the classic British ghost story.
