This review is from: Meddling with Ghosts: Stories in the Tradition of M. R. James (Hardcover)
If you're a fan of M.R. James at all, then this is definitely the book for you.
Sadly, once you've read all of M.R. James stunning ghost stories, then it can sometimes prove difficult to track down any other ghost stories which can even come close to equalling the terror and dread which M.R. James' stories brought about.
So, say a big well done and show your appreciation to the editor of this book, Ramsey Campbell, and the kind publishers at the British Library for saving us the bother, and collecting a good selection of ghost stories for us with the exact intention for them to be similar to the writings of M.R. James.
The book is beautifully put together, with a lovely cover and the stories are all preceded by a note from the editor telling you about the author and why the story was selected.
The authors within the book range from those who wrote before M.R. James and maybe influenced him like J.S. LeFanu, to his contemporaries like L.T.C. Rolt and to those that succeeded him like Fritz Leiber. All are categorised into three easy to follow sections.
A well put together book, lovingly crafted for all us M.R. James fans everywhere.
