Publication date: 12 Oct 2017
Author: Leah Moore, John Reppion, M.R. James
Curl up by the fire and enter the sinister, supernatural world of Montague Rhodes James, the master of the English ghost story. An influence on writers from H. P. Lovecraft to Stephen King, James created tales of understated horror that continue to transfix readers 80 years after his death. Ghost Stories of an Antiquary, Vol. 2 comprises graphic adaptations of four spine-chilling stories by M. R. James: Number 13, Count Magnus, Oh, Whistle, and Ill Come to You, My Lad, and The Treasure of Abbot Thomas. Filled with intrigue, suspense, and intellectual adventure, these enthralling tales of terror plunge readers into a world of creeping dread, where rationality is challenged and the mundane collides with the supernatural. Capturing Jamess trademark atmosphere of pervasive disquiet, Leah Moore and John Reppions subtly crafted adaptations breathe fresh life into these classic stories about restless phantoms and ill-advised academic exploration.
