The Stoneground Ghost Tales

EG Swain was a friend of the great MR James and was inspired to pen his own ghostly tales. Drawing on his own experiences as a clergyman, the Stoneground Ghost Tales recount the various strange things and odd hauntings encountered by a rural vicar Mr Batchell. Where Swain's tales differ from his good friend's is that there is a gentle humour haunting his stories and you could comfortablely see the Stoneground stories as the bridge between MR James and PG Wodehouse.
