Did anyone else see the free downloadable ghost story, "Casting the Runes" from NYRB today?


I guess I know what I'll read this evening.

Finally read it last night and loved it. What book does it come from?

You can find it in various collections by M.R. James and in numerous anthologies of ghost stories.

For a James collection, I prefer the Penguin Classics editions of his stories and "Casting the Runes" is collected in Count Magnus and Other Ghost Stories.

For a ghost story anthology, you can't go wrong with Great Tales of Terror and the Supernatural.

Thanks, TwoDs. I'm not much of a ghost story reader, but I was quite taken by "Casting the Runes" so I may look for a James collection.
