Ghost Stories from EF Benson

While now better remembered for his comic novels, EF Benson was also a good friend of MR James, and even attended some of the famous readings of James ghoststories. However Benson himself produced a great many ghost stories of his own. James actually considered Benson to be one of the modern masters - high praise, and indeed well deserved!
