Ghost Stories of an Antiquary

by Montague Rhodes James

M R James was the master of the brand of horror that emerges from the everyday. Subtle in its initial intensity, by the end of the story you cannot help feeling scared in a way that remains with you long afterwards. In James's world, it is what you cannot see that terrifies; the unseen horrors whose face is only revealed when all the comforts of reality have been stripped away and it is far too late to run. This is fear that drives the victim to insanity...or worse.

Author of the Day

Alexander McNabb
When Alexander McNabb stopped smoking, he had to find something constructive to do with his hands - so he started writing. His debut novel Olives - A Violent Romance, sparked a lot of controversy in the Middle East because of his use of common family names and because it contained themes such as drinking alcohol, sex before marriage etc. So he followed it with Beirut, in which there’s booze aplenty, sex, gambling, murder, violence and general mayhem. As our Author of the Day, McNabb chats about his love for the Middle East, why his books always deal with politics, democratic values and religion and reveals what music he listens to while writing.
