    The Alabaster Hand PDF Ô The Alabaster Kindle - alabaster pdf, hand pdf, The Alabaster epub, The Alabaster Hand PDFMunby lacks both the polish and the superior thrills of MR James but he compensates for his deficiencies with a straightforward style and a bibliophilic enthusiasm that give these spectral tales an air of authenticity There are perhaps no first rate stories here but there are also no bad or even mediocre ones and The Inscription The Tudor Chimney A Christmas Game The Negro's Head and An Encounter in the Mist would make worthy entries in any anthology of the antiquarian ghost story I particularly enjoyed An Encounter in the Mist a unique tale in which a benevolent guiding spirit leads men to certain destruction merely because he possesses out dated information

    The Alabaster Hand PDF Ô The Alabaster Kindle - alabaster pdf, hand pdf, The Alabaster epub, The Alabaster Hand PDFMuch of the charm of these antiquarian ghost stories consciously indebted to M R James lies in their cosiness full of urbane scholarly detail they summon up a mild frisson of weirdness but quickly re establish a state of comfortable normality This may be a weakness by comparison with the magisterially unsettling James but it also gives them a tone of humanity that is very pleasing Must horror always be horrible?Christopher Roden's Ash Tree Press is to be commended for making such obscure and wonderful works available in good ebook editions with fascinating introductions
