Montague Rhodes James (1862-1936) was a medieval scholar; Provost of King's College, Cambridge. He wrote many of his ghost stories to be read aloud in the long tradition of spooky Christmas Eve tales. His stories often use rural settings, with a quiet, scholarly protagonist getting caught up in the activities of supernatural forces. The details of horror are almost never explicit, the stories relying on a gentle, bucolic background to emphasise the awfulness of the otherworldly intrusions.

Of course, ghost stories as a old as the human race, but Monty made them respectable with his excellent writing and scholarly background. His specialty was blending humor, horror, and the prosaic everyday lives of the English middle class. One minute a gentleman is changing his collar for dinner and the next a frightful specter has crept up behind him and is grinning in his mirror.

Part 2: more ghost stories. Next day McLeod took to his bed with a chill or something of the kind, and it was a week or more before he was in school again. And as much as a month went by without anything happening that was noticeable. Whether or not Mr Sampson was really startled, as McLeod had thought, he didn't show it.

If you like good old fashioned ghost stories, filled with atmosphere and mystery, you’ve found the right book Don’t rush through, but spend time, linger, and absorb it, preferably on dark, rainy evenings when you are all alone... or thought you were.

These short stories are unrelated in plot or character but are all excellent examples of the spooky writing of a hundred years ago, very atmospheric.

This is the collection that defined what a ghost story ought to be. Accept no substitutes.

Every so often it's good to dip into a classic. Alas, this was the sort of classic that reminded me why it's precisely every so often and not more frequently than that. Widely beloved, widely lauded these are suppose to be among the finest tales of supernatural fiction and yet they didn't do it for me at all. I tried and tried, took several sittings. The book's page count is misleading, it's entered as 94 on GR and 122 on Amazon and yet by my account considering the time spent reading it and the fact that it comprises parts 1 & 2 of James' stories, also published as separate volumes, this should clock out at well over 200 pages. And feels much slower than that. And the thing is objectively I can tell these are suppose to be good stories, quality writing, atmospheric, imaginative...and yet at no point did I find myself engaged or even particularly interested. In fact I think the main reason I finished these is due to my completist nature and general need to try to understand why I wasn't enjoying these stories the way everyone seems to. Were they dated? Sure, but that wasn't the main detraction. I expected them to be dated. Maybe it was the somnolent pacing. Or the fact that these stories were so utterly unexciting. Either way this really didn't work for me, neither entertained as a book should nor spooked as a genre book ought to. It occurred to me that these tales might be more fun if read aloud, maybe this should have been a listen and not a read. In book form...disappointing. But try I did.

I enjoyed reading the old style writing. The stories were all new to me as well. Glad to have a dictionary.
