"Lovecraft, a Rare Presentation"
London, 1944. Seemingly far from the war in Europe, two schoolboys find they have much more pressing concerns than the fighting on the front-line. Melchior rekindles a passionate love affair with an old flame, but beneath his confident, roguish exterior lies a young boy who finds himself out of his depth. What starts as a romantic chapter in their young lives soon takes a violent turn with disastrous consequences that threaten to tear them apart. For Mortiz however, girls are the last thing he wants to think about.
M. R. James was one of the finest English-language ghostwriters ever published. These short stories are not only classics of their genre, but are outstanding examples of beautifully paced, understated terror and sociological horror, reaching to the dark expanse of the unconscious mind.
