Montague Rhodes James (1862-1936) was Provost of King's College, Cambridge, and Eton. Most of his ghost stories were occasional pieces, written for friends or college magazines, and were collected in Ghost-Stories of an Antiquary (1904), More Ghost Stories of an Antiquary (1911), A Thin Ghost and Others (1919), and A Warning to the Curious and Other Ghost Stories (1925). Widely regarded as one of the finest authors of supernatural fiction in the English language, James is credited as the originator of the 'antiquarian ghost story', replacing the Gothic horrors of the previous century with more contemporary settings for his subtle hauntings. Many of his stories were originally written as Christmas entertainments and were read aloud by the author to selected gatherings of friends.

Reviews

"What better time of year to curl up with ghost stories from the father of the genre? This beautiful edition, commemorating the 150th anniversary of James' birth, contains all 35 of his chilling tales."
—Charlotte Heathcote
SUNDAY EXPRESS, December 9, 2012

"Curious Warnings can fairly lay claim to being the most comprehensive collection of M.R. James'' fiction to date . . . In essence, even the rawest of MRJ newbies, after absorbing the contents of Curious Warnings and reading the 'Afterword', could with some justification call themselves a little bit of an MRJ expert!"
—Rosemary Pardoe
