‘At first they hear nothing at all. Then they hear someone – you know how far away it is – they hear someone scream, just as if the most inside part of his soul was twisted out of him.’
M. R. James (1862–1936) was a master of the ghost story. Now, the M.R. James Project is bringing his eerie and entertaining stories back to life and, for this instalment, it's travelling to Scandinavia. In Count Magnus, a travel-writer’s over-inquisitiveness leads to a breathless, diabolical chase from darkest Sweden to rural Essex. Denmark is the setting for Number 13, where a hotel room, with the famously unlucky number, conceals a ghastly and baffling secret.
★★★★ “Lloyd Parry is always absorbing, and catches the sense of dread that gives James his originality.” – The Times
