About this deal

Every time anyone looks at it, something has subtly changed – is it imagination or the supernatural? Every year at Halloween we like to switch things up and publish something a little bit off our usual beaten track and hopefully introduce you to something new. Mark Gatiss wrote and directed adaptations of "The Mezzotint" and "Count Magnus" for the Ghost Story for Christmas series in 2021 and 2022 respectively.

P. Lovecraft to Stephen King, James created tales of understated horror that continue to transfix readers 80 years after his death. Ghost-Stories of an Antiquary was accordingly published with just the four completed works as a tribute to McBryde. Published on the 80th anniversary of James's death, this is a graphic novel to be read on a winter's night, a book to curl up with - but not a book for the faint-hearted. His fiction has been published in anthologies from Combustion Books, Ghostwoods Books, PS Publishing, Snowbooks, Swan River Press, and Vagrants Among Ruins.At once true to their source and powerfully reimagined for a visual medium, Leah Moore and John Reppion's subtly crafted adaptations give a new lease of life to these classic stories of vanishing children, spectral works of art and vengeance from beyond the grave.

We give our best to give you the best book but in some cases we have to adjust few pages which are blur or missing or black spots. R. James (AKA: Montague Rhodes James) published in 1904 (some had previously appeared in magazines). The next best thing, I suppose, is a recording, to be enjoyed in the comfort of our own homes, and it’s a little startling to realise how recently recorded readings became available.Count Magnus' – The titular Count reminded me a bit of Vigo the Carpathian from Ghost Busters 2: he was a mean-spirited son of a bitch who liked to torture people in his spare time and go on fun little trips with names like “the Black Pilgrimage”. Mr Abney’s exploration of Pagan rites and the Orphic and Bacchic mysteries is the gruesome theme of Lost Hearts, whilst The Ash Tree has pagan references throughout, dealing with witchcraft in Bury St. The details of horror are almost never explicit, the stories relying on a gentle, bucolic background to emphasise the awfulness of the otherworldly intrusions. If you like traditional ghost stories that unnerve the reader subtly by suggestion and indirection, this is a book you should read. They help us to know which pages are the most and least popular and see how visitors move around the site.

This careful, scholarly answer tells us a great deal about the creator of some of the greatest ghost stories in the English language. I told her he was unknown to me, and she said: 'But his book was right in front of us, you even picked it up.Pages bright, with instances of light spotting throughout, most concentrated to pages facing plates. Original edition was published in and this unique edition is Reprinted in 2008 with the help of original edition. Montague Rhodes James (1862-1936) began writing ghost stories upon entering Cambridge in 1882 and quickly become known for his candlelit readings.
