Ghost Stories, Paperback / softback Book

Description

SELECTED AND INTRODUCED BY RUTH RENDELLM. R. James wrote his ghost stories to entertain friends on Christmas Eve, and they went on to both transform and modernise a genre.

James harnesses the power of suggestion to move from a recognisable world to one that is indefinably strange, and then unforgettably terrifying.

Sheets, pictures, carvings, a dolls house, a lonely beach, a branch tapping on a window - ordinary things take on more than a tinge of dread in the hands of the original master of suspense.
