More Ghost Stories of an Antiquary - M.R. James

 

4.0 stars! 

 

This collection was a lot of fun. Even though some of the stories were very wordy compared to more contemporary tales, it was easy to get past that because of the vivid pictures the words painted. 
There were a couple of stories that I thought were just okay, but there were also some real atmospheric knockouts.
I think my favorite in this collection was "Mister Humphreys and His Inheritance", but I could see that possibly changing upon a re-read. These tales were a good time for fans of classic horror.
