I watched yesterday evening this BBC documentary on M.R. James. The treasures you can find on youtube. I can also find many BBC adaptations of his ghost stories, which I will eagerly watch in the upcoming months. The documentary was so good that I decided to put it here. My small readership knows my admiration for M.R. James . There are many reasons for it, many of which you can know the documentary. M.R. James was also an academic, which I used to be in another lifetime. I love the way he turned familiar environments into unsettling nightmarish ones. As we are slowly getting closet ot autumn, I am getting more in the mood to read his stories.
