Meet the Author

Montague Rhodes James (1862–1936) was a medieval scholar; Provost of King's College, Cambridge. He wrote many of his ghost stories to be read aloud in the long tradition of spooky Christmas Eve tales. His stories often use rural settings, with a quiet, scholarly protagonist getting caught up in the activities of supernatural forces. The details of horror are almost never explicit, the stories relying on a gentle, bucolic background to emphasise the awfulness of the otherworldly intrusions.

Classic stories by celebrated writer but the text is scrambled with many chapter headings and titles appearing randomly throughout the text which makes this virtually unreadable.

Half the book is missing. After five weeks and two calls to customer service, I still have only half the book.
