Abstract:

Sometimes the greatest horrors lurk in the most mundane places This collection features some of M.R. James's greatest tales of the supernatural world crossing over into our own. In?Number 13,? an inn that previously belonged to an alchemist changes dimensions in the night.?The Mezzotint? features a painting of a house reenacting a gruesome scene from the house's history. In?The Treasure of Abbot Thomas,? an antiquary who has discovered the location of a treasure gets far more than he bargained for. James's tales of the terror that hides beneath the prosaic continue to stun more than a century after they were written. This ebook has been professionally proofread to ensure accuracy and readability on all devices.
