The only annotated edition of M. R. Jamesas writings currently available, "Count Magnus and Other Ghost Stories" contains the entire first two volumes of Jamesas ghost stories, "Ghost Stories of an Antiquary" and "More Ghost Stories of an Antiquary." These volumes are both the culmination of the nineteenth-century ghost story tradition and the inspiration for much of the best twentieth-century work in this genre. Included in this collection are such landmark tales as aCount Magnus, a set in the wilds of Sweden; aNumber 13, a a distinctive tale about a haunted hotel room; aCasting the Runes, a a richly complex tale of sorcery that served as the basis for the classic horror film "Curse of the Demon"; and aOh, Whistle, and Iall Come to You, My Lad, a one of the most frightening tales in literature. The appendix includes several rare texts, including aA Night in Kingas College Chapel, a Jamesas first known ghost story.
