it was amazing

I am one of the few lucky people to own this out of print book which is extremely rare and expensive to obtain. It is the definitive work on the English ghost story and is surprisingly readable (it starts with a reference to the popular television programme Doctor Who). Julia Briggs appears in interviews on the extras of a BBC DVD of M R James' Casting the Runes - a fascinating documentary worth seeking out even if you can't get this book. It really deserves a reprint though.
