Michael (mikedecshop) | 1479 comments just pulled a something off my bookshelf that i forgot i had . CASTING OF THE RUNES and other Ghost Stories by M R James. It is the Oxford classics Edition with a great Intro by Michael Chabon.
Some of you may remember the movie Night Of the Demom
Which was a very faithful adaptation of the short story.
Scared the hell out of me when I was 7.

Cathy | 177 comments I really do love him. He's also the rare ghost-story writer who can work in humor without killing the mood of the story.
