Audible Editor Reviews

This deliciously spooky tale culled from renowned British author and scholar M. R. James' lauded 1904 collection, Ghost Stories of an Antiquary, finds the employee of a university museum mesmerized by a mezzotint, a metal engraving depicting a heavily contrasted image, that inexplicably changes shape to unlock the mystery surrounding a lurid crime that occurred many years prior.

Stephen Critchelow turns in a hypnotic, atmospheric performance that perfectly suits James' austere yet powerfully evocative prose in this spine-chilling listen.

Publisher's Summary

This is a story from the Classic Ghost Stories collection.

Ghost stories continue to be a popular audiobook genre, and this group of four stories brings together some of the best. Reader Stephen Critchelow has spent a lifetime collecting and reading works like these and, with carefully chosen music, brings a strong sense of atmosphere to the recordings.
