Montague Rhodes James, OM (August 1, 1862 – June 12, 1936), who published under the byline M. R. James, was a noted British mediaeval scholar and provost of King's College, Cambridge (1905–1918) and of Eton College (1918–1936). He is best remembered today for his ghost stories in the classic Victorian Yuletide vein, which are widely regarded as among the finest in English literature.
The BBC produced five of James' stories for their annual 'A Ghost Story for Christmas' series, but I've only seen the excellent Oh, Whistle and I'll Come to You, My Lad'
with Michael Hordern.
Also Fritz Lieber's Our Lady of Darkness
was written as an homage to James.
