This title includes five stories from the master of the supernatural, M. R. James, read by Sir Derek Jacobi. M.R. James is widely regarded as the father of the modern ghost story, and his tales have influenced horror writers from H.P. Lovecraft to Stephen King. First published in the early 1900s, they have never been out of print, and are recognised as classics of the genre. This collection contains some of his most chilling tales, where the ordinary becomes menacing, curiosity leads to the uncovering of something dreadful, and scepticism can be fatal. A View from a Hill sees Fanshawe embroiled in a malevolent man's dark scheme when he borrows an unusual pair of field-glasses. In "Rats", Mr Thompson comes to regret the desire to investigate a locked room in the country inn where he is staying, while "A School Story" features an unnamed narrator telling a mysterious tale of his schooldays thirty years before. "The Ash Tree" recounts a curious series of events that befall three generations of Fells at Castringham Hall, and "The Story of a Disappearance and an Appearance" tells, through a series of letters, how a young man's search for his uncle leads to a terrifying experience. Read by BAFTA and Emmy-award winning actor Derek Jacobi ("Cadfael", "Gosford Park", "Doctor Who"), and with haunting and evocative music, these tales cannot fail to send a shiver down your spine. Don't listen alone...
