Stephen Greif and Gareth Armstrong read these classic ghost stories from two masters of the genre. These four suspenseful tales of the supernatural, from M. R. James and Charles Dickens, will keep you on the edge of your seat and leave you with a lingering sense of foreboding.
In "The Tractate Middoth", librarian David Garrett has a terrifying encounter while searching for an obscure book, while in "Mr Testator's Visitation", a poor man 'borrows' some furniture from another man's cellar, never expecting the owner to return and claim it. Then, late one night, there is a knock upon his door....
"Casting the Runes" tells the story of a don who rejects an alchemist's manuscript - only to find that the man's knowledge of black magic goes beyond the purely theoretical.
Finally, in "The Trial for Murder", a banker has an alarming experience when he is foreman of the jury in a murder case.
