Casting the runes and other ghost stories by M. R James( Book )

"Twenty-one tales that, in Chabon's words, 'venture to the limits of the human capacity for terror and revulsion... armed only with an umbrella and a very dry wit.' The stories here represent the best of James's work. They are set in the leisurely, late-Victorian, middle-class world of country houses, seaside inns, out-of-the-way railway stations, and cathedral closes, where gentlemen of independent means and antiquarian tastes suddenly find themselves confronted by terrifying agents of supernatural malice. But what these tales are really about, writes Chabon, 'is ultimately the breathtaking fragility of life, of 'reality,' of all the structures that we have erected to defend ourselves from our constant nagging suspicion that underlying everything is chaos, brutal and unreasoning.'"--Amazon.com
