A chilling medieval ghost story, retold by best-selling historian Dan Jones.
One winter, in the dark days of King Richard II, a tailor was riding home on the road from Gilling to Ampleforth. It was dank, wet and gloomy; he couldn't wait to get home and sit in front of a blazing fire.
Then, out of nowhere, the tailor is knocked off his horse by a raven, who then transforms into a hideous dog, his mouth writhing with its own innards. The dog issues the tailor with a warning: he must go to a priest and ask for absolution and return to the road, or else there will be consequences....
First recorded in the early 15th century by an unknown monk, The Tale of the Tailor and the Three Dead Kings was transcribed from the Latin by the great medievalist M. R. James in 1922. Building on that tradition, now best-selling historian Dan Jones retells this medieval ghost story in crisp and creepy prose.

A Ripping Yarn
An ancient tale of Ghosts, superstition and a very stoic horse. Dan Jones narration paints a wonderful, ghoulish picture of a time long past.
