If you are a fan of H.P. Lovecraft and you have not yet met his contemporary, M.R. James, allow us to do the honors. The British are far more familiar with his tales than we are this side of the pond, ghost stories meant to be told on Christmas Eve, while we Americans are busy putting out milk and cookies. 

You know how Lovecraft's monsters are even more horrifying because their atrocity is implied and the beast is created in your imagination? Witness M.R. James's description of the beast from "Canon Alberic's Scrap-Book," one of the stories in this volume: "I entirely despair of conveying by any words the impression which this figure makes upon anyone who looks at it." So scary it can't be described. Yep. If you like Lovecraft, you're going to dig this. 

Leah Moore and John Reppion have undertaken to develop the first four stories from M.R. James's Ghost Stories of an Antiquary into a graphic novel, illustrated by Aneke, Kit Buss, Fouad Mezher, and Alisdair Wood, respectively. All of the stories are available in the public domain. We suggest reading the original and then reading the adaptation to see how the artist rendered the creatures of your imagination.
