Cromtober 2015 Episode 2: A Jamesian Halloween!


A spooky salutation to one and all! The blood moon has risen and the fogs of dread cover the landscape! Surely that must mean it is Cromtober!
This Halloween special focuses on ghost stories from one of the founders of horror literature, M.R. James! If you haven't read them before, we encourage you to find a darkened room, light a candle, and read through "Oh, Whistle and I'll Come to you my Lad" and "Mezzotint". We think you will enjoy the spine-tingling sensation that follows!

  2. Here's are links to Librivox recordings:

    "Ghost Stories of an Antiquary", including both stories that were covered:

    Another version of "Whistle my lad..."

    Finally, HPPodcraft covered "Whistle my lad..." in one of their episodes. I like listening to both podcasts cover the same story as you have different insights into it.
