The Ghosts & Scholars M.R. James Newsletter issue 21 is now available. This issue contains an excellent story Quis est Iste? by Christopher Harman, plus reviews, letters and articles, one on dreams in the ghost stories of James, by Jaqueline Simpson. The newsletter is available on subcription – two issues for Â£8.00 in the UK and Â£10.00 overseas.
The newsletter, which began in 2002, is the successor to Ghosts & Scholars magazine. It is devoted to M.R. James and his writings, along with those amongst his circle of friends and acquaintances who also wrote supernatural stories; and more recent fiction in the James tradition. It covers not just MRJ’s ghostly fiction, but also all the odd mythological, folkloric, ecclesiological, demonological and angelological by-ways he explored in his scholarly work. The newsletter contains long and short articles, news, reviews, comment, queries, story annotations and artwork (and occasional new fiction). It is limited to a print run of two hundred.
