Classic Stories of Hauntings and Supernatural Even

Tales that you might tell around the fire on a wintry evening when the wind is rattling the door and howling outside. Lots of frights and shudders. Good old fashioned fun!

Love M.R. James!

I love M.R. James' ghost stories. They are especially effective in the dark. These are intelligent ghost stories. They just don't make them like this anymore.

One reader is terrible

I enjoyed the work of the male reader. It was professional and well acted.

The female voice was horribly monotone. I have no idea what the stories that she read were about. I couldn’t focus on the story. It was like her voice was a robot.

Ghost stories of an antiquary by M R James

Even allow ing for the now archaic phraseology ag possibly over porecise English that was used when James was writing these chilling stories they are still the epitome of the genre.
The readers are excellent and contribute to the atmosphere of creepiness
