Michael Hordern could make the telephone book sound wonderful

MR James read by a superlative narrator. What more could you ask for on those dark winter nights than this ?

The perfect way to listen to these stories

Sir Michael Hordern's wonderful acting and narrative skills manages to enhance these already superb ghost stories. I've not heard another narrator who is anywhere close to being as good as Hordern.

Perfection.

Finally on digital audio!

I used to own this on cassette! Many of these stories were my introduction to M R James as a young teen! I’m so pleased to find them now collected and released on audio! They’re excellent and Horden is a superb reader of these tales! Many other actors have tried (only Derek Jacobi has come close in my opinion). Superb!
