Ghost Stories of an Antiquary by Montague Rhodes James (Free Audio Book)
Narrated by Peter Yearsley
Ghost Stories of an Antiquary were written by Montague Rhodes James. James was a medieval scholar who lived from 1862 to 1936. He was known for his penchant in creating traditional ghost stories that are best read aloud in front of a group, similar to the way stories were told centuries ago. A lot of James’ stories are usually set in pleasant and peaceful backdrops which further enhance the horrifying supernatural presence in his stories.
