Journal Entry 1 by beekeeper40 from Hoveton, Norfolk United Kingdom on Thursday, January 03, 2008
"Montague Rhodes James wrote ghost stoires to amuse and entertain. He succeeded superbly: a master of the genre, he could summon up all the terror of the unknown to leave his readers shaking with terror. Sixteen of his greatest works are included in this volume, each of them satisfying what Virginia Woolf described as 'the strange human craving for the pleasure of feeling afraid.

There are the fiery yellow eyes of the beast, in which shone 'exulting hate and thirst to destroy life'; the pallid phnatom, dreadfully fulfilling the ancient promise 'Oh, whistle, and I'll come to you, my lad', and the fatal curiosity of the traveller who awoke the dead Count Magnus from his sarcophagus: 'What can he do but lock his door and cry to God?'

This is a book for anyone brave enough to venture into a world inhabited by malignant forces from beyond the grave."
