TOP 1000 REVIEWERon 7 March 2013
"Randalls Round" is a collection of 9 ghost stories, first published in 1929. In the title tale an Oxford student decides to spend some time in a Cotswold village where he is fascinated by the eerie folk dance performed by its inhabitants. Oxfordshire and the university's students (male and female) appear in other stories and their period slang adds to the reader's enjoyment.

The spirit of M. R. James is ever-present, as Scott alludes to ancient rituals and cursed antiquaries (accompanied, of course, by incomplete Latin inscriptions and documents written in early modern English). Scott, however, adds plenty of herself and the stories are lively, witty, and utterly chilling. It is a shame that these are the only ghost stories Scott published; however Oleander Press are to be praised for resurrecting them.
