Montague Rhodes James

In pursuance of my annual October quest for good ghost stories, I came across the works of Montague Rhodes James. I’d read about him somewhere–Lovecraft, probably–but I’d never read any of his stories until today.

What I’ve read so far is pretty good. A lot like Chambers and Le Fanu, but a bit more readable than the latter, I think. And I think he does a pretty good job of not over-explaining things, as Lovecraft sometimes did.

What's your stake in this, cowboy?
