Curl up by the fire and enter the sinister, supernatural world of Montague Rhodes James (1862–1936), the master of the English ghost story. Chillingly atmospheric, quietly terrifying, M. R. James’s stories explore the darkness just beyond the flicker of the candle, behind the creaking door. Ghost Stories of an Antiquary, Vol. 1 comprises graphic adaptations of four of James’s most compelling and unsettling stories, plunging readers into a world of pervasive, creeping disquiet—a world populated by vengeful phantoms, disturbing visions, and spectral works of art. Published on the 80th anniversary of James’s death, this is a graphic novel to be read on a winter’s night, a book to curl up with—but not a book for the fainthearted.

The four stories are  Canon Alberic's Scrap-book, Lost Hearts, The Mezzotint,  and The Ash Tree.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from An Excellent Graphic Representation of some Classic Ghost/Horror Stories! This is my first foray into graphic novel form for any of the classic ghost story authors. I love the stories of M.R. James and it came recommended on A Podcast to the Curious, so I thought I'd give it a go. I was curious to see how the supernatural creatures and events were depicted by the illustrators. I like how the stories entirely used quotes from the original material, and wasn't "improved upon". I was impressed with the illustrations - I was worried that I wouldn't like their style, but they were all enjoyable. Highly recommended to all who love these classic ghost stories!
