    Description

    Spine-tingling stories by M. R. James, plus a chilling original drama and two bonus programmes about his life and work.

    M. R. James was the master of the uncanny. His classic supernatural stories have haunted readers and listeners for over a century and been adapted countless times for radio, TV and film.

    This collection features dramatisations of 12 of his most popular stories – The Mezzotint, Casting the Runes, The Stalls of Barchester Cathedral, A Warning to the Curious, Rats, Oh, Whistle, and I’ll Come To You, My Lad, The Tractate Middoth, Lost Hearts, The Rose Garden, Number 13, Martin’s Close and Count Magnus. Among the star-studded casts are Mark Gatiss, Derek Jacobi, James D’Arcy, Anton Lesser, Julian Rhind-Tutt and Donald Wolfit.

    Also included are a trio of readings by Benjamin Whitrow: Canon Alberic’s Scrapbook, A School Story and The Haunted Dolls’ House.

    Neil Brand’s disturbing drama The Haunting of M. R. James, starring Mark Gatiss and Fenella Woolgar, sees horrific events from James’s own stories echoed in reality.

    The life of M. R. James is discussed by Muriel Gray and Christopher Frayling in an episode of biography series Great Lives, presented by Humphrey Carpenter. Finally, in a fascinating documentary – The Ghosts of M.R. James – Michell Raper examines the author’s life and work, with readings from several of his stories.

    Disappointing Package, Should’ve Been Longer

    I was looking forward to this release. It includes 12 of James’ stories dramatized, 3 read a new original audio drama and two examinations of his work. It turned out to be disappointing. The 12 stories were far too short. Only partially dramatized and heavily narrated, they are too short to make an impact. You are better off finding readings of the stories in their entirety. The 3 readings are better, the original audio drama is excellent. The two explorations are good. For me, the best adaptation is the Conception of Terror which updated his stories for the modern age and were dramatized in their entirety. The cast and production are excellent.

    Pleasantly refreshing

    The theatrical aspect is fresh and serves to boost imagination, albeit appearing a bit distracting at times. The stories are classic and don't really need introduction. I would still prefer the more traditional approach to this vigorous acting out, though. But this was new and entertaining just the same.
