M.R James - Canon Alberic's Scrap Book (Penguin Modern Classics, 2011) ***
This little book contains three short ghost stories by M.R. James, dating from 1894. They are dark, they are unexpected. It's not the kind of horror that will make you scream out from utter terror. It's the kind that gives you the impression that there might be a darker reality somewhere, that escapes our logic and senses. Nothing pretentious, just good entertainment.
