TUESDAY, October 8th at 7pm: THE SPOOKY CLASSICS - M.R.James
Caledonia presents ghostly stories from some of the classics of the genre. Each week features a
different author associated with tales of the macabre, Gothic, or plain old spooky.
THIS WEEK: M.R. James
James redefined the ghost story for the new century by
abandoning many of the formal Gothic clichés of his predecessors and using more
realistic contemporary settings. However, James's protagonists and plots tend
to reflect his own antiquarian interests. Accordingly, he is known as the
originator of the "antiquarian ghost story".
