Montague Rhodes James (1862-1936) was a medieval scholar; Provost of King's College, Cambridge. He wrote many of his ghost stories to be read aloud in the long tradition of spooky Christmas Eve tales. His stories often use rural settings, with a quiet, scholarly protagonist getting caught up in the activities of supernatural forces. The details of horror are almost never explicit, the stories relying on a gentle, bucolic background to emphasise the awfulness of the otherworldly intrusions.

M.R. James is the master of the supernatural, always set in the urbane, slightly dusty atmosphere of 19th century Oxbridge. The reader has exactly the right soft, cal, genteel delivery to allow us not only to enjoy the story, but to revel in the language.
