Living Dangerously.

It’s an interesting fact that several of MR James’s celebrated ghost stories feature creepy things to be encountered in English country lanes – disembodied shrieks, pools of blood with strange black flies on them, dead men covered in spiders… I read two of them tonight. What with that and the Presence at the Bottom of the Stairs, it makes you realise just what a perilous place the Shire is.
