M R James (1862-1936)

Lost Hearts from Ghost Stories of an Antiquary (1904) is a good, old no-nonsense ghost story.  Yes there’s a big old stack set in grounds, some noises off, and scratches on the door, but there’s no melodrama,  and an ending that leaves you wondering, and feeling ever ever so slightly unsettled.Read it aloud!
